2017 Buick Enclave vs. 2018 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Traverse than in the Buick Enclave, 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 Buick Enclave and the Chevrolet Traverse.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Traverse, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Buick Enclave, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Buick Enclave will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Traverse, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Buick Enclave and the Chevrolet Traverse have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick Enclave is about the same width as the Chevrolet Traverse. When looking at overall length, the Buick Enclave takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chevrolet Traverse.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Buick Enclave and the Chevrolet Traverse are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the Buick Enclave for pulling heavy loads. The Buick Enclave has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Enclave and the Chevrolet Traverse.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Enclave than that of the Chevrolet Traverse.
