First vehicles of the new 2022 Chevrolet Traverse may roll off the assembly line next week, if the production schedule won’t subject to further changes.
The 2022 Chevrolet Traverse should have already gone into production if not for the coronavirus pandemic and persistent semiconductor chip shortages it caused. According to the latest info, the manufacture of the SUV, which Chevy refreshed for the 2022MY, will possibly begin on the week of October 25th, according to GM Authority.
Customers can already configure their 2022 Traverses on Chevrolet’s official website. The company previously planned to start production on October 4 (we even rushed to report it) but had to push it back again.
