A COMPARISON: CHEVY TRAVERSE VS. FORD EXPLORER

Ford Explorer vs Chevy Traverse

Let’s compare the agile performance of a new Chevrolet Traverse to the added room in the Ford Explorer. Both of these SUVs offer ample room for storage, plenty of seating for passengers and advanced trailering abilities. But which one is better?

The experts at Dyer Chevrolet Vero Beach have decided to put together an in-depth review of both models so that you can make that decision. Without further ado, here is our take on the Traverse vs. the Explorer.

POWER AND OFF-ROADING

Let’s start by acknowledging what the Ford Explorer is. This new SUV is a worthy opponent of the Chevrolet Traverse for more reasons than one. Firstly, it’s a powerful 3-row SUV with tons of space. Secondly, it has ample technology to compete with the innovative designs brought forth by Chevy. Third, it offers a range of engine choices.

So, where does it fall short?

While the new Ford Explorer offers an exceptional All-Wheel Drive system, there are many SUVs out there that are just…better, such as the Chevrolet Traverse. Let’s see a breakdown of their performance below:

 

PERFORMANCE

Now, even with one less engine, the new Chevrolet Traverse rivals the Explorer in horsepower and overall torque. It is possible to gain more power through the Ford Explorer, but you have to shell out extra money for the better engine option. The Traverse provides upfront satisfaction without the burden of a financial sacrifice every month. So, you decide: which option is better?
