GM Authority site says 2024 traverse will have minor changes.
An all new 2025 will arrive.
Says strong possibility it will be an all electric.
Though possible.
2.0 i4 turbo
3.6 lgx
3.0 twin turbo
Turbo diesel select markets
Plug in hybrid
All electric.

The keywords here are ALL New.
Yeah all new untested vehicle in real world conditions..... with glitches/gremlins that I dont want to deal with.
That means id wait till 2026 or 2027 for a 3rd gen model to have fixes put in place...
Long time to wait.
Im gonna hit 190,000 soon.

Yeah, sorry, I meant to say 2025 in my post, which is coming out Q4 next year.

I agree that I generally skip first run model years, but like you, my Lambda is getting up there and will need a replacement soon — especially since I tow with mine. I'm a little over 130,000 miles and expect to be around 150,000 by the end of 2024.

I fully expect the 2.7L I4 L3B turbo to make an appearance, completely dropping the 2.0L; and, I think the 3.6L is dying if they want to be competitive into 2030. My guess is that they will detune the 2.7L for lower trims and unlock it in stages for SLT/AT4/Denali similar to the Canyon. I think there will be enough data out on the L3B by then in terms of reliability. That'll have been 5-6 years in the field since launch in the Silverado.

As I've posted in the past, if they go this route, I expect a new transmission at a minimum (9T65 can't handle the torque) or maybe going longitudinal with the Colorado/Canyon 8-speed.

I'm hoping for the latter: that it goes longitudinal RWD and gets the 8-speed. Since GM just redesigned the 8-speed to work out the kinks (similar to the 6T75 iterations of the Lambdas), I'd be more confident taking a first model year flyer by then as long as: A, the 2.7L L3B is holding up for owners; B, it gets the redesigned 8-speed. Then at least I know the powertrain should be pretty solid.

If they throw a NA V6 in it, I'm gone.

Typo, or you don't like the V6? If all they offer is 4 bangers, I'm out.
Naturally Aspirated V6. I would normally be against a turbo 4, but I need the torque it puts down for towing. Since I figure GM is NOT going to put a turbo V6 in, that pretty much leaves the 2.7L as the only viable option right now.

I am okay with the car, however we all know the major issues the car has. Many issues I’ve ignored and have either gone away or continue but just turn the music up. I am not gonna be sad if they total this out and I will take their spare change and go over to the Ford dealer.
Most likely it will be totalled out. Hopefully you filed the claim with your own insurance and not the other guys...you will always get more for your vehicle that way.
I know what you mean about the issues with these cars. I have had my 2011 for about 14 months. Swaybar bushings swaybar links brakes and rotors all around wiper motor wheel bearings. Heater hoses sprang pinhole leaks at the quick connect fittings a month apart. Last month a new transmission now throttle body issues and misfires on 1 3 5 due to oil leaking into plug holes. A real money pit
GOOD LUCK and stay away from gm

I did file with my insurance and they did total it out thank god! The car has left me stranded three times, and has forced me to put over 7k into it in a year and a half.

These days it is crazy how they total a car. With the chip shortage, there are many cars sold with a rebuilt title, that have very little damage. You can take the VIN and run it online and more than likely find a pic of the car at the auction lot. I bought my wife's Equinox this way. I honestly could see no damage at all. Carfax confirmed it had been hit, but I could not see anything wrong. Went and looked at it and could see no issues at all. Drove great, and the price was just amazing. $18K for it with 39K miles and a new set of tires. We have 67K on it now, and only recently found a broken left tail light with a hairline crack. So yeah, you will get totaled. Yours is worth around $4500, and repairs these days will be more than that. Hope you come out OK.

lol So funny story the left tail light on Acadia had a crack as well and it used to fill up with water. I never cared because I don’t drive behind me so good luck to everyone else. But an officer pulled me over for and gave me warning, he turns out to be now be my boyfriend, and he fixed it when we started dating! So the tail light reminded me of that!

Also the car was worth (well they gave me) $6,800. It sucks because I just had new tires, brakes, rotors, new fluids, and sunroof drain cleaning, drive shaft, power steering pump, and fuel injector. $4,200 ish if I remember correctly. Whoever does end up buying my car from the total loss salvage yard they will be pleased with the maintenance.
