2020 Chevrolet Traverse vs. Its Competition

2020 Chevrolet Traverse
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2020 Chevy Traverse most often competes against crosstown rivals from Ford and Dodge.

The Ford Explorer is newer and bigger with a hybrid option but steep price in top trims.

The Dodge Durango is much older comparatively but has available V-8 power for more towing.

The Pathfinder is smaller but more affordable.

The Pilot was our Best Car To Buy for 2017 and is a must-drive for family buyers.

The Subaru Ascent offers standard all-wheel drive and turbo-4 power, but a smaller interior.
