2017 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2016 Lincoln MKX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKX than in the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKX, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Traverse as you will with the Lincoln MKX, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Clearly, the Chevrolet Traverse is a better financial choice over the Lincoln MKX, when considering 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 Chevrolet Traverse and the Lincoln MKX have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Lincoln MKX, 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 MKX.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Traverse doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKX.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Traverse will do just as well as the Lincoln MKX, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln MKX.

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

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