Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Traverse than the GMC Acadia. The Chevrolet Traverse will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia.

Cost

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia have similar Destination Charges.
