A lot has been happening to Chevrolet’s SUV lineup lately. The completely new 2021 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban were launched, the 2021 Equinox received an extensive facelift and the new Captiva (a rebadged Chinese SUV) debuted for the GCC market. Now it is the turn of the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse, as it gets a mild facelift for the new model year.
After a long 10-year stint, Chevrolet’s Traverse crossover gets a complete makeover for 2018. It is not just a facelift of the new GMC Acadia either, as the Chevy version has a longer wheelbase. It uses GM’s latest C1XX platform as its underpinning.
Car production is an honest process, the Americans would tell you. It’s a simple process, the Japanese will say, and the Germans would go on about how intricate and detailed the process is. But when it comes to after-market assurance, there’s just one word dictating their manufacturing flaws; swift recalls. Recalling faulty vehicles is not unfamiliar in today’s automotive scene. As a matter of fact, millions of vehicles have been recalled in the past and you could see it as a sign that cars are getting safer and manufacturers getting serious about their products.
The covers have come off the redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Traverse, in what could signal Chevy’s boring future styling direction. It gets a three-bar upper and two-bar lower grille design upfront, as well as a bonnet bulge. Beyond the A-pillars everything has been redesigned, the rest of the body remains till the D-pillars. The rear end gets redesigned taillights, liftgate and a relocated license-plate section.
General Motors is voluntarily conducting a safety recall for 2009-2010 models of the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook, all variations of the same platform, to inspect second-row safety belts for damage that in rare cases could make an occupant think the belt is properly latched when it isn’t.
General Motors is recalling 1.5 million vehicles, across their Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Hummer and other brands, because of a potential fire risk due to faulty heated windshield washer nozzles. This includes 22,500 cars in the Middle East, of which 6,000 are in the UAE.
