2016 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2016 Lincoln MKC Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln MKC, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Traverse and the Lincoln MKC.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Traverse requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKC, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Traverse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln MKC. 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 Lincoln MKC have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Lincoln MKC, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lincoln MKC.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a larger turning radius than the Lincoln MKC, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Traverse more than the Lincoln MKC, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lincoln MKC.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Traverse is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lincoln MKC.
