2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2017 Lincoln MKX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln MKX, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKX.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Traverse, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lincoln MKX.

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
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the Lincoln MKX for pulling heavy loads. 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.

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