Equinox vs Traverse
Getting a fuel-efficient family vehicle you can depend on, that is strong and powerful, that can haul any kind of cargo you can think of and that is the top rated safety pick while remaining amazingly good to look at – then you’re looking for a Chevrolet SUV. Choosing between the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox and the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse is really the only decision to make when you’re looking for your new family car. Here are a few differences between the two equally amazing SUVs. Take a look at them, and then come see them in person at Weber Chevrolet and drive away with the one that’s perfect for you!
If you need room, the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse has got that and then some! With seating for up to eight people, you can fit your whole family and the neighbors. Even if you didn’t invite them, they’ll probably show up in the back seat because the Traverse is just that comfortable. With heated/cooled seats, and tri-zone climate control, the Traverse is the most comfortable place to be, it may even be more comfortable than your living room. Go ahead and watch a movie in there, we won’t judge! The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is just as comfortable! It has less seating as it’s a smaller sized SUV, fitting up to five people, but the 60/40 split folding is desirable if you want to load up the whole campsite yourself, bench included! Plus with the Equinox you can tell the neighbors there isn’t room this time, sorry!
Hauling and Powering Through
There is no bad engine with a Chevy, there is only powerful and more powerful. The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox has an available 3.6L V6 engine with a towing capacity of up to 3500 pounds. If you want to drag something a little heavier behind you then you might want to think about the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse. It has an available 3.6L V6 engine, 288 horsepower with a towing capacity of 5200 pounds. Both are strong and dependable, it just depends on how much you’d like to take with you!
Get There Safely
The good thing about all Chevys is that they’re safe. The 2016 Chevrolet Traverse received a 5-star rating for overall safety by the NHTSA, and the 2015 Chevrolet Equinox was the Top Safety Pick by the IIHS and the 2016 model has only added more safety to the award winning quality you’re already offered. With 10 standard airbags, available Lane Keep Assist, and Front Center Airbags, you can drive the whole family (even the neighbors) and know you’re in the safest vehicle you could be!
