2014 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2014 Ford Flex Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Flex offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Traverse, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Traverse requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Flex, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Flex. 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 Ford Flex have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Ford Flex, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Traverse takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Flex.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Ford Flex.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has the same turning radius as the Ford Flex, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Traverse will do just as well as the Ford Flex, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Traverse and the Ford Flex.

Utility
The Chevrolet Traverse offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Flex, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Ford Flex.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Flex.
