2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2017 Toyota 4Runner Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Traverse than in the Toyota 4Runner. The Chevrolet Traverse offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota 4Runner, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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 Toyota 4Runner.

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 Toyota 4Runner. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Traverse will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota 4Runner.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Toyota 4Runner, 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 Toyota 4Runner.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Traverse doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota 4Runner.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Traverse will do just as well as the Toyota 4Runner, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little more horsepower than the Toyota 4Runner.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Traverse more than the Toyota 4Runner, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota 4Runner.
