2020 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2020 GMC Acadia: Compare Crossovers

The 2020 GMC Acadia and 2020 Chevrolet Traverse aren’t remarkable for any reason—and that’s reason enough to look at them. 

The two crossovers from General Motors are more distantly related now (they used to be much closer in size) and offer different takes on the three-row family-vehicle idea. The Traverse is a rounded corner; rated PG for “Pretty Generic.” The Acadia, by contrast, is more muscular: a boxy shape, a little ‘tude, and an off-road package or luxury trim away from under- or over-dressing to your next dinner party.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Chevy Traverse is a three-row family mainstay with plentiful interior space. The 2020 GMC Acadia gains a turbo-4, but falls behind new three-row rivals.
