Despite its entry-level status, the LS trim boasts a long list of advanced features and premium design elements. The exterior shows off 18-inch machined-face aluminum wheels, LED headlamps, and heated side mirrors with integrated turn indicators. The new presence-based AutoSense power liftgate is included as well.

The interior of the LS comes with tri-zone automatic climate control, a heated and wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and premium cloth seats for eight passengers. A 17.7-inch center touch screen pairs with an 11-inch digital driver display, providing access to Google built-in services, navigation, connected apps, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Perhaps most notably, the LS comes standard with a wide-ranging suite of updated safety and driver-assistance technologies. These include:

  • Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Front Pedestrian and Bicyclist Braking
  • LED Reflective Windshield Collision Alert
  • Side Bicyclist Alert
  • Rear Pedestrian Alert
  • Reverse Automatic Braking
  • Blind Zone Steering Assist
  • Rear Cross Traffic Braking
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Safety Alert Seat
  • Traffic Sign Recognition and Speed Limit Assist
  • Rear Park Assist
  • HD Surround Vision


The LT trim offers a handful of feature upgrades, mostly inside the cabin. A seven-passenger configuration comes standard, along with an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat and SmartSlide second-row seating. Wireless phone charging and a 120-volt power outlet are included as well. On the exterior, the LT trim adds roof-mounted side rails.

The Z71 trim is new to the Traverse lineup for 2024, and all-terrain performance is its top priority. To this end, Z71 comes equipped with Advanced Twin-Clutch AWD, Hill Descent Control, and an off-road suspension. It also features a skid plate, tow hooks, and all-terrain tires. For extra on-road capability, the Z71 gets a standard Trailering Package with a heavy-duty cooling system, Hitch Guidance with Hitch View, and a hitch that allows for up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity.

As the top trim in the Traverse lineup, RS goes all-in on style and sportiness. The exterior displays high-gloss black elements like 22-inch painted wheels, a grille, roof rails, and body moldings. The interior shows off Jet Black/Torch Red perforated leather seats, red cabin accents, and a power-folding third row. Amenities like a panoramic power sunroof, ventilated front seats, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and a Bose premium sound system are included as well. The RS also boasts the lineup’s most advanced tech features, including the standard hands-free Super Cruise driving system, a Rear Camera Mirror, and Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist.
