Evora

Lotus Evora GT Interior

Did you miss me? Yes, the Lotus Evora skipped a year, but now it's back and better than ever as the Evora GT with more horsepower (416), bigger tires (245/35R19 front and 295/30R20 rear) and double the aerodynamic downforce. The 3.5 supercharged V6 is still connected to a 6-speed manual and mounted behind the seats. Option an automatic 6-speed and you lose the torsen limited-slip differential. 

Along with the other changes the Evora GT gets a new grille and fascias as well as an inexplicable faux rear fender air intake, courtesy of a matte black sticker.

2020 Lotus Ever GT Faux Air Scoop

Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard, as is navigation and a backup camera. The interior, as always is spartan but beautiful.

Speaking of interiors, a rear seat is now available, if you want call room for a small potted plant a seat.

At $96K minimum, the Evora is not the cheapest mid-engined sports car... anymore.

Evija

Lotus Evija Electric Concept

Lotus revealed it very first electric car this July, and it is by far the most powerful with almost 2000 horsepower estimated. Lotus is aiming for 250 miles of range.

Cascada

Dead.

Enclave

2020 Buick Enclave

The top-of-the-line Premier and Avenir models add front seat back massages to their list of luxuries.

All models get a new and improved infotainment touchscreen interface.

The rear view camera is now in high-def. So is the optional Surround Vision system. Before: "There's a squirrel behind us." After: "That squirrel has a tattoo of Mike Pence on his arm!"

2020 Buick Enclave Sport Touring

A new Sport Touring edition is offered on Essence" models, with a unique grille, 20-inch wheels with gray satin painted insets and "Sport Touring" badges. No clue as to what sport you'll be touring, but I'm thinking golf.

"Trailer Assist Guidelines" and "Hitch Guidance with Hitch View" are now included with the Trailering Package. They draw an animated line on the rear view camera display to where the trailer hitch will go, allowing easier hookups. Hitch View zooms in to just show you your trailer hitch so you can match up exactly.

On Enclave Avenir, the bottom cladding, most prominent below the rear bumper, is now body color instead of a neutral gray.

Three new colors: Dark Moon Blue, Champagne Gold and Rich Garnet replace Black Cherry and Pepperdust.

Encore

2020 Buick Encore

The hot-rod direct-injected 1.4-liter turbo engine (153 horsepower) is no longer offered. It also got better fuel mileage than the non-direct injected 1.4 turbo (138 horsepower) that remains.

Dual zone automatic climate control and navigation are no longer available on Encore Sport Touring; dual zone climate control is standard on Encore Essence and navigation is optional.

Encore GX

2020 Buick Encore GX Courtesy GM Media

Buick is taking advantage of the trend of small, premium sport utilities (which it created) by placing a sport utility between the Encore (which started it all) and the Envision (which may not survive a tariff fight with China). What better name? Encore GX.

Like the original Encore it is made in South Korea, with whom we are not involved in a trade war.

The Encore will offer standard Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. A rear vision rear-view mirror will be offered as will High-Def Surround Vision. 

We think the Direct-Injected 1.4 turbo will reappear here.

Envision

2020 Buick Envision

Two new colors: Espresso Metallic and Dark Moon Blue Metallic.

LaCrosse

Discontinued, unless you're Chinese. Our cover shot shows the redesign that most Americans will never see.

Regal

2020 Buick Regal Sportback

Dual zone automatic air conditioning is now standard across the board. A new rear spoiler is standard on GS and optional on Essence. The spoiler is part of the new Sport Touring package available on Essence, which also includes an "ST" badge, gloss black wheels and a custom black grille.

Finally, all-wheel drive is no longer offered on Regal Sportback Preferred; it is still optional for Essence and standard on GS.

 
 
 
 

2020 Cadillac Model Year Changes

ATS

Mort. See below.

CT4

2020 Cadillac CT4-V Courtesy GM Media

People claim the CT5 is the replacement for the CTS and the ATS. Wrong. This is the replacement for the ATS, a compact, rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive sedan offering a lineup of 4-cylinder engines, only (a rumor of an extra-potent "V" with a turbocharged V6 is not verified.). Pedestrian versions will house GM's popular 2.0 turbo, probably running 237 horsepower.

The CT4-V will carry a 2.7 turbo with about 320 horsepower and a ten-speed automatic. Is this the same engine offered in the Chevrolet Silverado pickup? Yes, including Active Fuel Management, which means it can run on as few as one cylinder under light loads.

The hands-free "Super Cruise" will be offered.

CT5

2020 Cadillac CT5

This important all-new sedan basically replaces the previous CTS. (Its name even looks a lot like "CTS.") Two engines will be offered, a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with 335 horsepower, which won't arrive right away, and the ubiquitous 2.0liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 237 horsepower. Later CT5-V models will up the horsepower, but reportedly, not the cylinder count. A next-level CTS-V Blackwing will house the CTS-V's 6.2 OHV supercharged V8 making North of 650 horsepower. But isn't "Blackwing" the name of the new Cadillac DOHC turbocharged V8 in the CT6-V? Confused, yet? Well, they might not be called "Blackwing."

Regardless of which engine it houses, the CT5 will run a 10-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. It's been reported that the CT5-V Blackwing will offer a manual transmission.

The CT5 will offer Cadillac's Super Cruise.

Prices start under $38,000.

CT6

2019-Cadillac-CT6-002 Courtesy GM Media

The rumors of Cadillac's flagship sedan's demise after only three years of production are greatly exaggerated. Of course the rumors were started by General Motors, but they have given the big Caddy a reprieve. The 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder is dead, leaving the 3.6-liter as the standard engine. This change makes the CT6 all-wheel drive only, as the 3.6 V6 and 4.2 turbo V8 come standard with it. The 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 is also cancelled.

Several trim levels have been trimmed, leaving only Luxury, Premium Luxury, Platinum and CT6-V.

Navigation, Safety Alert Seat, Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, automatic tightening front seatbelts, heated front seats, UltraView power sunroof, automatic dimming driver's side mirror, and IntelliBeam automatic high beam control are all standard now.

CTS

Replaced. See CT5 above.

Escalade/Escalade ESV

2020 Cadillac Escalade

With the 2021 redesign of the Escalade on the horizon, the 2020 model is practically unchanged. The "Noir" package is cancelled as is the dual screen DVD rear seat entertainment system. Dark Mocha is a new color and "Manhattan Noir" and Bronze Dune" are cancelled.

XT4

2020 Cadillac XT4

Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking and the Safety Alert Seat are now standard on all models. The Hands-free liftgate is now standard on Premium Luxury and Sport models. A compact spare tire is no longer standard, but an option.

Rear Pedestrian Alert is now a feature of the Enhanced Visibility Package.

XT5

2020 Cadillac XT5 Sport

The XT5 gets a refresh, with a larger grille, different fascias, new wheels and side mirrors with integrated turn signal repeaters.

A new standard 2.0-liter turbocharged engine produces 2347 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The 3.6 V6 engine previously standard returns as an option, still rated at 310 horsepower, but now with one more cog in its transmission for a total of nine speeds, same as the 2.0 Turbo.

The Base and Platinum trims are gone. A new "Sport" trim becomes the top model. To make up for the loss of the Platinum model, Premium Luxury and Sport models can be equipped with a Platinum package, restoring the features that were lost, like Semi-Aniline leather (yeah, we have no idea what that is.).

Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Cornering Lights and Front Park Assist sonar are all now standard. Heated front seats are also now standard.

Night Vision is now offered! Optional on Premium Luxury and Sport models with the Platinum package, this system uses an infrared camera and computer analysis to detect people, large animals and anything else with a heat signature.

Parking Assist is now more sophisticated: in addition to steering you into your parking spot, it also controls the brakes and accelerator. You still have to change between Drive and Reverse. Its offered on Premium Luxury and Sport models. Premium Luxury and Sport models also get a new High Definition rear view camera. When Surround Vision is ordered, it is also now in high definition. Luxury models stick with the lower resolution camera.

Order Surround Vision and you also get a washer for the rear camera to keep it clear of road dirt.

The CUE touchscreen interface for radio, navigation and other features is new and improved.

The hands-free liftgate that was only available on Platinum models is now standard on Premium Luxury and Sport models and is fitted with a "Cadillac" logo light that shines on the ground to show where to wave your foot.

For people that tow, the Smart Towing package now offers Hitch Guidance with Hitch View, a modification to the rear high definition camera that assists in backing up to your trailer hitch. The system draws a line to predict your path, so you just turn the wheel until the line intersects your hitch. When you get close, change to hitch view and a close-up view lets you line up perfectly.

XT6

2020 Cadillac XT6 Profile 2019 NAIAS

The original Cadillac SRX had three rows of seating, rear-wheel drive and V6 or V8 engines. After the next generation SRX (now the XT5) turned to front-wheel drive and five-passenger seating, Cadillac lacked any crossover with seating for more than five. Tired of losing sales when someone wanted more passenger room but didn't want a body-on-frame behemoth, the XT6 offers seven or six-passenger seating, 310 horsepower, front or all-wheel drive and up to 78.7 cubic feet of cargo room. 

Similar in size to the Acura MDX, Audi Q7 and GMC Acadia, the XT6 fills the gap in Cadillac's lineup nicely.

The XT6 sits on GM's CH1 platform, which it shares with a number of vehicles, including its own XT5, the Chevrolet Blazer and the similarly sized GMC Acadia. The suspension includes struts up front and a multi-link independent suspension in the rear with stabilizer bars at both ends. Opting for the Sport or Platinum gets you GM's wonderful magnetically adjustable shocks and stiffer rates on the stabilizer bars. Braking will be about average, with 12.6-inch front vented rotors and 12.4-inch vented rotors in the back.

Standard safety features are robust: seven airbags, including full length side curtains, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, antilock brakes, traction control, trailer sway control and StabiliTrak. Optional safety equipment is even more impressive: HD Surround Vision, Automatic Park Assist with automatic braking, automatically tightening front seatbelts and infrared Night Vision!

Heated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, power front seats with driver's memory, voice command, OnStar®, wireless phone charging,  three-zone automatic climate control, power hands-free liftgate and a power tilt and telescoping steering column with a heated steering wheel are all standard. Options include Adaptive Cruise Control, heated second-row seats, ventilated front seats and Hitch Guidance (a system that draws a line in your rear view camera to help you mate up to a trailer).

XTS

The last front-wheel drive Caddy sedan is gone.

Acadia

2020-GMC-Acadia-AT4

The Acadia gets a refresh for 2020 including new, standard LED headlights, a new grille, and front and rear fascias. The headlight design is in the "C" shape other GMCs have adopted lately.

A new mid-level engine is inserted between the base 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and the top-level 3.6-liter V6. A 2.0 turbo, it produces 230 horsepower, 37 more than the 2.5 and 80 less than the V6. All engines now get a 9-speed automatic to replace the 6-speed. All engines now feature automatic start/stop technology, now with the ability to be disabled.

Blind spot warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Park Assist are all now standard on all models.

A new trim-level joins SL, SLE SLT and Denali: AT4. Those familiar with other GMC vehicles will recognize this off-road trim. Predictably, all-wheel drive is standard. The AT4, like the previous Adventure Package, eliminates the third seating row and makes do with 5-passenger seating.

Hands-free operation is now standard with the power liftgate.

Canyon

2020 GMC Canyon

The Canyon now has standard Tire Fill Alert which helps a driver inflate the tires to the proper pressure; it beeps the horn when the proper pressure is reached. The highest end stereo system is redesigned.

All Terrain now offers Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.

Tailgate locking and unlocking is now included with the keyless remote.

Longbed Crew Cab is now only available in 4WD.

Express

2020 GMC Savana

Optional diesel engine gets an improved transmission.

Sierra

2020 GMC Sierra

The Sierra "Limited" is no longer offered. Basically just the previous generation (2014-2018) model but offered only in Double Cab with one engine, it's now gone completely.

New CarbonPro Edition has an exclusive black chrome grille, carbon fiber composite bed and grey 18 or 20-inch wheels. This package is the only way to get the long-anticipated carbon bed with its legendary strength.

A new Bed View Camera shows a remote image of the cargo box, especially useful for a fifth-wheel hookup.

Adaptive Cruise Control is now available on the SLT, AT4 and Denali.

Sierra HD

2020 GMC Sierra 3500 Crew Cab Denali

Along with an all new chassis made of stronger and lighter mixed materials, the heavy duty Sierra get a new base gasoline engine, 6.6 liters and 401 horsepower. The diesel option remains unchanged but now it comes with a heavy-duty 10-speed automatic. A fully automatic transfer case is now available, letting owners get extra traction on dry roads without damage to the tires or driveline.

The Multi-Pro tailgate with its umpteen different modes migrates to the Sierra HD, but unlike the Sierra 1500 you don't have to opt for a high trim-line to get it, it's optional on all models starting with the base.

Sierra HD SLT, AT4 and Denali now offer a heads-up display. This feature projects information such as speed, navigation directs and even an inclinometer directly onto the windshield in the driver's field of view.

Automatic Emergency Braking is now offered. IntelliBeam (Auto High Beams), Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Warning are also new safety options.

Terrain

 2020 GMC Terrain stock photo

The biggest change is the discontinuation of the Diesel engine. First it was reported that the diesel would only be offered in front-wheel drive models, but EPA certification and other paperwork see the diesel scrubbed completely for 2020.

Spurred by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Alert becomes standard. Also now standard: Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Front Pedestrian Braking and IntelliBeam Headlights (automatic high beams). This package was not only optional for 2019, but only available on SLT and Denali models.

The previously low-speed only automatic braking was upgraded to all speeds and pedestrian detection is added.

Terrain Denali now has standard front parking sonar in addition to the rear sonar previously standard. Denali also receives more premium shocks with an internal valve to give a smoother ride.

Adaptive Cruise Control is now also offered on the SLE.

Yukon

2020 GMC Yukon XL

No changes.

Parallax1

Keep your browser pasted here for all the 2020 changes for Chevrolet models. So far we have Blazer, Camaro, Colorado, Corvette, Equinox, Express, Impala, Malibu, Silverado 1500, Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD, Sonic, Spark, Suburban, Tahoe, Traverse and Trax. How much more could there be? A lot!

Blazer

2020 Chevrolet Blazer

A new mid-range engine nestles between the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and the 3.6-liter V6 (193 and 308 horsepower, respectively): the GM corporate 2.0-liter turbo Ecotec 4-cylinder, with 230 horsepower (estimated). Like the original engines, it is backed by a 9-speed automatic. All-wheel drive will be offered on the 2.0-liter, unlike it's non-turbo 4-cylinder little brother. The new engine will be exclusively offered on Blazer LT, the 3.6-liter is standard on RS and Premier and optional on LT. Blazer L makes do with the 2.5 and front-wheel drive.

The automatic start/stop system on all Blazers will now have a cancel switch.

LED headlights are now available on RS and Premier, an upgrade to the standard xenon high-intensity discharge lights that are still standard on all models.

A Redline Edition is now offered on the Blazer LT, including black 20-inch wheels with red hash marks, red-outlined black badges, a black grille and other trim.

Hitch Guidance, a system that draws a line on the back-up display to assist in lining up a trailer hitch, now includes Hitch View on RS and Premier models, where the camera can zoom in on your hitch to make last minute corrections to mating to the hitch easier.

Camaro

2020 Chevrolet Camaro SS

Everyone remembers the special Camaros with V8 engines: 302 V8 Z28, SS350, SS396, Z28 350 LT1, all the way up to the late model Z28 with the 427 small-block and the ZL1 with the supercharged 6.2 V8. When the original Camaro was introduced in 1966 as a 1967 model, it offered 8 engines, including 6-cylinder engines, but it didn't take a special package or badge to get a V8. 327 V8 engines were a regular production option in a number of different states of tune. Later, in 1969, a 307 going to get groceries V8 was offered. For the 2020 model year, a V8 option has returned, one that doesn't require the "SS" or "ZL1" badge. It comes in the "LT1" package and includes the same 6.2, 455-horsepower aluminum V8 as the SS. It includes the performance suspension and four 245/40R20 all-season tires, skipping the staggered summer-only tires on the SS. The LT1 also skips rev-matching for its manual transmission, leaving that to SS and ZL1 models. This new model allows Camaro buyers to step up to a V8 at a more affordable price: $34995. To keep things simple, features like memory seats, heated seats and ventilated seats aren't available on the LT1.

The optional 3.6 DOHC V6 exchanges its optional 8-speed automatic transmission for a ten-speed.

The Camaro SS gets a refreshed front and and a new hood vent insert.

A Tire Fill Alert is new to the Camaro and standard; it simplifies setting proper tire pressure by beeping the horn when the pressure is correct as you adjust the pressure in each tire.

A Redline Edition is now offered on LT and SS models. It includes black-painted aluminum wheels with red hash marks, black badges with red outlines, redline stripes (hashmarks) on the fenders, red seatbelts and premium floor mats. A Shock and Steel Special Edition includes various carbon fiber, satin and black accents, high-performance Brembo brakes with yellow calipers and premium floor mats.

Previously, only limited production 6-caliper brakes were offered with red-painted calipers. Now they are available on 4-caliper brakes. Orange is also available, now, as well.

Colorado

2020 Chevrolet Colorado

Tire Fill Alert is new to the Colorado; this standard feature simplifies setting proper tire pressure by beeping the horn when the pressure is correct as you adjust the pressure in each tire.

A remote locking tailgate is now optional on Colorado Work Truck and standard on LT, Z71 and ZR2.

Safety Package, previously only offered on LT is now optional on Z71 and consists of Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.

The optional uplevel touchscreen infotatinment system with navigation is redesigned with improved response.

Corvette

Red 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

The last front-engined Corvette has been built. A new mid-engined Corvette is coming! With a 6.2 V8 and 490 horsepower (495 with the performance exhaust system in the Z51 performance package) it goes from Zero-to-60 MPH in less than 3 seconds! On all-season tires. A brand-new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission is exclusive to the eighth generation Corvette. 

GM's smooth magnetically adjustable suspension is offered as is a nifty trick: adjustable steering stops. These steering stops are constantly updated depending on cornering load allowing a tighter turning radius. On Corvettes with the system, the turning diameter is reduced by almost two feet.

Our favorite part: no lane departure warning is offered; no lane keeping, no adaptive cruise control or self-parking.

Cruze

Dead.

Equinox

/2019 Chevrolet Equinox

The biggest change is the discontinuation of the Diesel engine. First it was reported that the diesel would only be offered in front-wheel drive models, but EPA certification and other paperwork see the diesel scrubbed completely for 2020.

Spurred by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Alert becomes standard. Also now standard: Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Front Pedestrian Braking and IntelliBeam Headlights (automatic high beams). This package was not only optional for 2019, but only available on Premier models.

The previously low-speed only automatic braking was upgraded to all speeds and pedestrian detection is added.

Memory seats, mirrors and easy automatic entry are now optional on LT models, still standard on Premier. Also newly available on LT: automatic dimming rear-view and side mirrors and fog lights.

A new Midnight Edition includes blacked-out 19" wheels, fog light bezels, grille, bowtie badges. Only available in black with a black leather interior on LT.

Rear legroom slightly increased.

Express

Chevrolet Express Cargo

The optional 2.8 turbo diesel gets a new torque converter for its 8-speed automatic to help it to run smoother.

Impala

2020 Chevrolet Impala

With a temporary reprieve, the Impala goes into 2020 leaner: the bottom-rung LS model is discontinued, leaving LT and Premier. Due to the change, V6 dual zone automatic temperature control and remote starting are now standard. Navigation is no longer offered on LT. Impala Premier gets a new 19-inch wheel design.

Malibu

2020 Chevrolet Malibu

Malibu is a survivor of an endangered class: sedans. GM has signaled that the Malibu is not among those they will be discontinuing.

Navigation is no longer offered on the LT, remaining standard in the Malibu Premier and optional (dealer activation) on the Malibu Hybrid.

IntelliBeam (Automatic High Beams), Side Blind Zone Alert (Blind Spot Warning), Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning and Front Automatic Braking are now standard on Malibu Hybrid. Still optional on LT and Premier. Remote start and heated front seats are also now standard on the Malibu Hybrid. A heated steering wheel is now offered on the Malibu Hybrid, part of the Leather Package.

Malibu RS gets a new grille with a chrome outline and black inserts. Heated front seats are no longer available on Malibu RS.

The power sunroof is now standard on Premier.

A Midnight Edition Malibu LT is now offered with black bowties, nameplate, grille and wheels in 19-inches with 245/40R19 tires. The 245/40R19 tires are also now standard for 2020 on the Malibu Premier.

On Premier models, the two Driver Confidence Packages have been combined into one "Enhanced Driver Confidence Package."

Silverado 1500

2020 Chevrolet Silverado

Adaptive cruise control that can automatically change speed to keep a safe distance to the vehicle in front is now offered on LTZ and High Country. The 3.0-liter diesel that was promised for the 2019 model year arrives with world class fuel mileage: 23 city/33 highway 2WD; 23 city/29 highway 4WD.

The Silverado LD (previous generation body) is finally gone.

Value Packages for RST and LT give discounts on popular features like the Trailering Package and all-weather floor liners.

New tall, vertical trailer mirrors are available. A new Bed View Camera is optional, to see in the bed. A new HD Surround Vision is offered that can connect to cameras mounted on your trailer to make a complete view around the truck and trailer.

Silverado HD

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Z71 at CAS 2019

2019 was the Silverado 1500's full redesign, now its the big daddy's turn. The Silverado redesign was roundly criticized for being boring and GM must have taken the complaints to heart, as the Silverado HD is very aggressively styled. All grilles except the High Country get a huge "CHEVROLET" carved into the cross-bar, either in black, chrome or body color, depending on trim and packages. High country models get a gold Chevy bow tie. Either way the grille is large enough to cool a nuclear reactor. The headlights are much shorter, visually than on the 1500, making the truck look angrier and determined.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Crew Cab with plow

Under the hood a brand-new, larger 6.6-liter gasoline V8 makes 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque, 41 and 84, respectively, more than last year's 6.0-liter. Engine start-stop and cylinder deactivation are still missing, not being compatible with the heavy-duty mission of the truck. It is backed by the returning 6-speed automatic. The optional 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 built by Isuzu returns unchanged, but it gets a new Allison 10-speed automatic, with four extra gears. Between the new tranny and other powertrain strengthening, maximum towing is increased to 35,500 pounds on Regular Cab rear-wheel-drive duallies with the diesel engine. An increase of over 12,000 pounds!

Automatic Emergency Braking, a new safety feature for the Silverado HD, will be optional on LTZ and High Country, part of Safety Package II. Child safety locks have returned to a traditional mechanical type; the power child locks are gone.

Sonic

The manual transmission is no longer offered. #SavetheManuals

Spark

/2020 Chevrolet Spark

No changes.

Suburban

2020 Suburban

The next generation Suburban is not here, yet! It is believed the 2020 Suburban will be a short production run as the all-new 2021 will come in the Winter of 2020. The 2020 is basically unchanged.

Tahoe

2020 Chevrolet Tahoe

No changes.

Traverse

2020 Chevrolet Traverse

Automatic Emergency Braking gets a new name and much broader availability, now standard on RS, Premier and High Country and optional on LT. Fleet versions of LS and LT get it standard. The High Country includes "Enhanced" Automatic Emergency Braking. The same expanded availability applies to Lane Departure Warning,Lane Keep Assist, Front Pedestrian Braking and IntelliBeam (Automatic High Beams).

All Traverse models get newly redesigned audio systems still with 7 or 8-inch touchscreens; now they can stream music via Bluetooth from two different devices.

The surround vision system standard on RS, Premier and High Country and optional on LT is now higher definition.

Heated steering wheel is now also available as an option on LT, part of the Driver Confidence Package II. It is still standard on Premier and High Country.

Due to low sales volumes, the 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder engine is discontinued, leaving only the 3.6 DOHC V6 with 310 horsepower.

For towing, a new Hitch Guidance with Hitch View and Trailering Assist Guidelines are available.

Trax

2020 Chevrolet Trax
