Chevrolet has unveiled the 2013 Traverse, ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show.

Looking significantly improved, the model adopts a redesigned front fascia with new headlights and a Malibu-inspired grille. There's also a powerdome hood, revised taillights and a new liftgate.

Moving on to the interior, the cabin gains soft-touch plastics, silver / chrome accents and a revised center stack that can be equipped with an optional MyLink infotainment system.

Like the GMC Acadia, the Traverse is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that develops up to 288 hp (215 kW / 292 PS) and 270 lb-ft (366 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an improved six-speed automatic transmission which can be backed up by an optional all-wheel drive system.

Besides the styling tweaks, the crossover benefits from a revised suspension and the industry's first front center air bag.

The 2013 Traverse will go on sale later this year and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
