The Chevrolet Traverse is a mid-size crossover SUV built by General Motors. The Traverse is built on the GM Lambda platform that is also used on the GMC Acadia and on the Buick Enclave. It is the successor to the Chevrolet TrailBlazer.
Originally, the Traverse was built at GM's Spring Hill, Tennessee assembly plant during 2009, but then production of the Traverse had moved to GM's Delta Township, Michigan assembly plant in 2010.
The 2009 Chevrolet Traverse debuted at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show and the Traverse had arrived at every Chevrolet dealer in October 2008.
The second generation model debuted in showrooms in the summer of 2017. Starting with the 2019 model year, the Traverse will be slotted above the new mid-size Chevrolet Blazer as part of Chevrolet’s plans to expand its CUV lineup.
The Traverse name was originally used for a concept car at the 2003 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, but that concept gave way when the Chevrolet Equinox launched for the 2005 model year. The production Traverse's design was inspired by the 2005 Chevrolet Sequel concept, and has a chevron-shaped grille similar to the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu. The Traverse has unique sheet metal different from the other Lambda crossovers, with the exception of the doors.
