SUVs are some of the most popular vehicles on the market and we want to make sure you can get into the one that has all the features you are looking for. Top models from trusted manufacturers like Chevrolet, Ford, and Toyota are often compared but we want to show you how the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse could be the model that is right for your needs.
The bigger picture that you will see might only fit into the Traverse though thanks to having more space for passengers and cargo. The whole point of an SUV is to be able to bring people and gear on adventures with you, which was understood by Chevrolet when they were designing this model. It comes with up to 157.3 cubic feet for the passengers and can range from 23 to 98.2 cubic feet of cargo space depending on how many seats you can fold down.

The Explorer has less interior space, possibly making passengers feel cramped when they have to bring gear along with them too. You will have to squeeze your passengers into 144.9 cubic feet of passenger space and hope that they can fit their gear into the range of 13.8 to 83.7 cubic feet of cargo space.
Getting on a test drive is the only way to make the final decision on which SUV is right for the needs of your life. Our team is here to help with that, making sure you can get scheduled for a convenient time so that you don't feel rushed while you are behind the wheel. We can explain every feature so that you can see which you want and which you can live without, giving you the true feeling of what it would be like to own this model.

There are many competitors out there, but it should be clear as to why you should be choosing the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse over them.

As two models that are some of the most impressive when it comes to packing people and gear, we want to help you decided between the Traverse and Explorer. If you are looking to put the most passengers into your SUV, you will want to choose the eight-passenger capacity of the Traverse rather than the seven-passenger capacity of the Explorer.

You might be thinking that a higher passenger capacity will lead to less cargo space, but you will need to think again. The Traverse offers up to 98.2 cubic feet of cargo space against the max cargo space of 81.7 cubic feet in the Ford Explorer. If you need to fold some seats down for the perfect balance of seating and cargo, the Traverse still has more space: 57.8 cubic feet behind the second row and 23 cubic feet behind the third row compared to 43.9 and 21 cubic feet in the Explorer.
While the Ford Explorer and Chevrolet Traverse both come standard with a V6 engine, the 3.6-liter in the Traverse gives more power than the 3.5-Liter that you'll find in the base Explorer. You would need to upgrade to the 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 on the Ford to get more power than the Traverse, which ends up getting costly.

Choosing the base engine will also give you better or comparable fuel efficiency than the base and upgraded engines of the Ford Explorer. This helps to alleviate the stress that comes with finding a gas station during your adventure, as well as reducing the cost over time of owning your vehicle.
The Toyota Highlander has been a crowd favorite for a long time, but the Traverse has made a great case for taking its spot. It offers all of the features that drivers will love during their drive, and we want to show you why it's a good pick over the Highlander.

It is important to look at price differences because that is a main factor for many drivers, and the Traverse is more affordable if you are looking between these two models. Keeping a low starting point is very important because it puts the vehicle within the budget of many drivers, and then has the features that you can add on if you are comfortable spending more.

Now that you know the Traverse is more affordable, you might be thinking it lacks the power that you can enjoy, but the Traverse is actually more powerful than the Toyota Highlander. The base engine of the Highlander is a 3.5-Liter V6 that makes 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque while the Traverse has a 3.6-Liter that makes 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.

The Traverse also has a 2.0-Liter turbocharged engine that can make up to 295 pound-feet of torque, making sure you will be able to have the performance that suits all the needs of your life. The Highlander only offers a weaker engine for its base model, as well as a hybrid that pushes the starting price way up from where the Traverse is.
