When you’re choosing between mid-size SUVs, like the 2019 Chevy Traverse vs 2019 Ford Explorer, you want one that can do it all. Thankfully, the 2019 Chevy Traverse delivers on all fronts.
Mid-size SUVs should offer supreme comfort and spaciousness from the front seats to the rear seats. Luckily, the 2019 Chevy Traverse delivers on both counts. The Traverse has space for 8 adults to sit comfortably even on a long trip. They won’t struggle getting out of the back seat thanks to the Smart Slide® second-row seating. The Ford Explorer, however, cannot give you either of these great features.
The Ford Explorer can try and beat the 2019 Chevy Traverse on the road, but it just won’t happen. The Chevy Traverse has a 3.6L V6 engine that will give you 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. Whereas with the Ford Explorer, you’ll only get 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque.
The new Chevy Traverse will allow you to tow up to 5,000 pounds while the Ford Explorer only allows that much towing capacity when specially equipped. The 9-speed transmission found in the Traverse will give you the smoothest shifting power available. This incredible SUV is also equipped with the intelligent stop/start technology that makes fuel efficiency possible in busy cities. Test-drive the 2019 Chevy Traverse today.
Protecting your family should be your No. 1 priority, so choose the SUV that does it better. The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse was awarded a 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. The many different features that help attribute to this include:
To add to all of those features are the available cameras, radars and sensors to really give you the peace of mind that you're looking for. Other than the standard rear view camera, you can equip an available rear camera mirror and 360-degree surround vision to give yourself extra eyes while you’re driving.
Chevrolet doesn’t think that you should have to pay a lot for all of the same incredible entertainment options that you pay extra for with a Ford. The 2019 Chevy Traverse comes with a line-up of amazing entertainment features for you and your passengers. These include the standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, which can be accessed on the 8-inch touchscreen.
One of the most incredible features that the 2019 Chevy Traverse offers for growing families is the Teen Driver Technology. This allows you to control certain settings for when your new teen is driving so they won’t be distracted. These settings include volume and speed limits, as well as a boundary limit which will alert them when they’ve left that boundary.
Another feature the Explorer can’t give you is amazing cargo space. The Chevy Traverse can give a maximum 98.2 cubic feet of storage space while the Ford Explorer can only give a maximum of 81.7 cu.ft. There are a few options that both SUVs offer, such as premium seat materials, a 2-panel sunroof and heated seats. However, all of this will come at a lower cost when you choose the Chevy Traverse.
