2017 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Traverse and the Toyota 4Runner.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Traverse as you will with the Toyota 4Runner, 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). 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. The Chevrolet Traverse carries a much lower Destination Charge 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.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 4Runner, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota 4Runner is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Traverse for pulling heavy loads. 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. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota 4Runner.

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