Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Traverse and the Ford Flex.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Traverse, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex.

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). The Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Flex. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Traverse will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Ford Flex.

With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Ford Flex.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Flex, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
