Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Traverse than the Ford Explorer. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Traverse and the Ford Explorer.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Traverse as you will with the Ford Explorer, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Traverse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Explorer.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Traverse is about the same width as the Ford Explorer. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Traverse, which is slightly longer than the Ford Explorer.

Performance
The Chevrolet Traverse has a little more horsepower than the Ford Explorer.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Traverse doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Explorer.

Utility
The Chevrolet Traverse offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Explorer, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Chevrolet Traverse has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Ford Explorer.
