Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lincoln Corsair. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Traverse and the Lincoln Corsair.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Traverse requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln Corsair, 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 Corsair. 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 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lincoln Corsair.

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

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

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

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

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