Does the 2023 Chevy Traverse Have Wireless Apple CarPlay?

The 2023 Chevy Traverse is one of the best options for car shoppers in the full-size SUV segment. There are many reasons why the Traverse is such a good choice, and one of the main reasons is its interior, which is spacious, well-designed, and well-equipped. Apple CarPlay is one of the most popular features car shoppers are looking for in their choice of vehicle, so here’s a look at whether the 2023 Chevy Traverse is equipped with wireless Apple CarPlay.

An overview of the 2023 Chevy Traverse

According to Chevrolet, there are currently quite a few options available for the Traverse. The standard Chevy Traverse is the LS trim, starting at about $36,000. It comes with front-wheel drive, which is standard on the other trims. All-wheel drive is an option on all trims, and it’ll bump the LS trim’s price to $38,000.

Next up is the LT Cloth trim, which starts at $38,500 with front-wheel drive and costs $42,000 with all-wheel drive. Folks who want a bit more comfort in their SUV can upgrade to the LT Leather trim, which starts at $42,000. All-wheel drive will bump its price tag to $44,000. Then there’s the RS trim, which starts at about $46,500. All-wheel drive will bump the RS trim to $48,500.

The Premier trim comes after that, starting at about $48,500. Adding all-wheel drive to it will bump its price tag to $51,000. Finally, the top trim Chevy offers the Traverse is the High Country trim, which starts at $53,000. With all-wheel drive equipped, the High Country trim costs $55,500. 

The Chevrolet Traverse has Apple CarPlay, and a big update is coming

There are a lot of differences between those trims, as well as a lot of similarities. For example, Chevrolet only gave the Traverse a single engine option, and it’s a 3.6-liter V6 paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. It gets 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque, and 23 mpg combined. Another similarity between the trims is that they all come with wireless Apple CarPlay as standard.

Apple CarPlay is a handy feature that allows folks to connect their iPhone to vehicles. Usually, Apple CarPlay needs a wire, but wireless Apple CarPlay doesn’t. This’ll enable Chevy Traverse owners to easily connect their iPhones to their Traverse, and then they can use their phones with the help of the Traverse’s 7-inch touchscreen.

Additionally, according to Business Insider, a big update is coming in late 2023 to Apple CarPlay. This update will allow Apple CarPlay to “take over” the car’s dashboard. It’ll also allow owners to customize the layout of their dashboard with different themes and layouts. Folks can also add widgets, such as navigation and weather, to the car’s screens.

That being said, Chevrolet doesn’t have an exclusive agreement with Apple, so wireless Android Auto is also a standard feature on the Traverse. Bluetooth is standard as well on the full-size SUV. Additionally, while it comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, folks can upgrade that to an 8-inch touchscreen and add a 4.2-inch digital gauge cluster display to the car.

The Chevy Traverse also starts with several smart safety features. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and more are all standard on the Chevrolet SUV. The top trims also come with adaptive cruise control as standard.
