Specs at a Glance

In 2020, the Chevy Traverse family remains just as impressive and popular as ever. There are seven trim levels available in the collection, which range from the entry-level L trim to the High Country, which has more standard luxury features and more amenities available through add-on packages. In contrast to many of its competitors, the base trim level of the Traverse comes equipped with a variety of standard amenities, including WiFi. This year, all trims benefit from an upgrade to the infotainment system, which provides a clearer background, sharper graphics, and overall better usability than in years past. All trim levels are also now equipped with a V6 engine, which was previously reserved for the higher-level trims. When you visit our dealership, you can see for yourself how the trims compare. Those looking for the basics will find a great value with the L, while the High Country offers range-topping luxury.


This year, all trim levels of the Traverse have the same engine. They are all equipped with a 3.6L V6 that has a peak power output of 310 HP and just over 265 LB-FT of torque. Both trims are equipped with front-wheel drive as the standard drivetrain and a nine-speed automatic transmission on all trims. The L and High Country have the same towing capacity as well, which is a substantial 5,000 pounds. Most trims are equipped with front-wheel drive as the standard drivetrain, while the High Country gets standard all-wheel drive for better traction.


If you put the 2020 Chevy Traverse lineup side-by-side, you would notice some similarities but also some notable differences among the trims. The L trim level gets standard 18-inch alloy wheels, while the High Country gets 20-inch wheels. Both trim levels, however, come with all-season tires. The L features black side moldings and rocker panels for a distinctive finish. The High Country comes with more chrome accents for a more polished and dazzling finish, including chrome door handles. You can further customize its appearance with an optional package that adds roof rails, a bolder front grille, and a custom emblem.


Both the L and the High Country are equipped with many desirable features. You can't go wrong with either trim level, as the L includes several amenities. While the L certainly covers all the bases for comfort, style, and convenience, the High Country features more luxury and creature comforts. The L is equipped with a seven-inch infotainment display screen, newly updated with a more visible background screen and clearer graphics this year. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard, and the screen also pairs seamlessly with your smartphone. The base trim level comes standard with a WiFi connection as well. It also has plenty of cup holders throughout the interior and seating for eight. The High Country swaps bench-style seats for captain's chairs, reducing to seven. You'll get a panoramic sunroof, more driver-assist safety aids, and leather upholstery with this trim.

From simple to sophisticated, the 2020 Traverse lineup offers something for everyone. Contact our dealership today to learn more about the Traverse and arrange a test drive to compare the L and High Country.
