Looking to replace my 2009 AWD LTZ clocked at 220K miles with a 2020 Traverse. What is the current trim that is equivalent to my LTZ?

The two top trims are the Premier and the High Country. I honestly don't see much difference in them with the exception of the color of leather seating that is only available in the High Country. Personally, I believe the Premier is the equivalent of the LTZ. May I suggest that you go into Chevrolet.com and select the ability to "Build Your Own" and then compare the two trim levels. I've never compared the Premier and the High Country, so I don't know the specific features that distinguish them. Good luck. as a note: We are extremely satisfied with the Traverse Premier (2020) that we purchased. Ride comfort, quality control, fit and finish, performance and economy are all excellent--from our experience.

I'll second that since I'm shopping myself. Premier is the new name for LTZ across the Chevy brand.
High Country just gives you a name plate on the back and embroidered on the headrests and some piping on the seats as far as I can see.
Most of the options are standard on both packages as far as I can tell.

According to the 2020 brochure, "In addition to or replacing Premier features, High Country includes:"

Trailering package
Adaptive Cruise Control - Advanced
Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking
Floor mats - Carpeted all rows with High Country logo on front row
Seats - third row power folding 60/40 split bench
Seating Surfaces - premium perforated leather-appointed front & second rows; 3rd row vinyl
Sill plates - front, bright
Sunroof - Skyscape, power with fixed rear skylight and sunscreen

Of course, you can get most of this as optional equipment.

High Country also gives you the upgraded AWD. Not sure if later Premier models have it or not.
This may be the biggest upgrade, the torque vectoring rear diff is a huge upgrade for people who drive in snow or sand.

Is that a different type of AWD as an upgrade? The reason I ask, the Premier also has an AWD option.

As far as I know the torque vectoring rear diff is only available on the Traverse High Country and Acadia AT4. I don't remember hearing it marketed on any Enclave models. I think it may be standard on all trims of the XT6 that have AWD but I'm not 100% sure of that.

This type of AWD system is what's been used in Acura's SH-AWD, the new Pilot's iVTM-4, some Subarus, etc. It's not here to increase driving performance like Acura's SH-AWD but it will help tremendously with poor weather and off-pavement performance.
