The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia go head to head to determine which is the best midsize SUV between the two. Looking at them, they are both attractive SUVs. The Acadia has a bit of a meaner look, but both have the family vehicle vibe happening because of their size, space, and their wide range of conveniences.
The Nitty Gritty
Both the 2017 Traverse and the 2017 GMC Acadia have comparable warranties. They are standard 3-year/36,000-mile warranties. They both have V6 engines. Their gas mileage is also very close to one another. When looking at safety, they both have 5-star overall safety ratings for frontal and side crashes. Even their prices are almost identical.
By this point, the choice is difficult because you’re going to be making about the same number of stops at the gas station, they are both large, and even their interior space isn’t much different. Where the difference lies is in the drivetrain. The Chevrolet Traverse has higher torque, and that means it does a better job transmitting the horsepower from the engine to the wheels. The Chevrolet Traverse also beats the Acadia in towing capacity, seating capacity, and cargo space.
The Winner: The 2017 Chevy Traverse
Because of the aforementioned features and the fact that the Traverse has a great deal of technology integrated into the vehicle, the Traverse wins the battle. It is a great vehicle to drive a large family on a daily basis or on a road trip thanks to its space and seating capacity.
