Choosing the right mid-size SUV for you and your family can seem tricky, especially with some great options on the market like the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse and the 2016 Jeep Compass. That’s why we at Weber Chevrolet have taken the time to do a little discovery and compare the differences between the two to make your decision making process easier! While both are great vehicles, there’s one that definitely stands out as a clear winner. So, take a look at these differences and then take yourself on down to Weber Chevrolet and let us get the best vehicle for you and your family!
Bigger is Better
When it comes to the gas tank, the bigger the better. Good things do not come in small packages in this case. The smaller the package, the more expensive the payout at the pump. That’s why the Traverse’s 22-gallon tank is so impressive compared to the Compass’ 13.5-gallon tank. Don’t waste your time at the gas station, take your time on the road!
If the engine is the heart of your vehicle, then the Jeep Compass and the Chevy Traverse have some pretty big hearts! The Compass has a 3.5L 172 horsepower engine that gets 165 lb-ft of torque. Nice, right? Sure. But the Traverse is a lot bigger, stronger, and better with its 3.6L V6 281 horsepower engine with a really great 266 lb-ft of torque! So, haul that camper, take on those steep mountain roads, because the Traverse can handle it!
The good thing about Chevy and Jeep is that they both offer similar warranties, making sure you’re covered and protected for 5 years/100,000 mile powertrain. But the 2016 Chevrolet goes a step further and offers a helpful 2-year maintenance warranty that the Compass doesn’t offer at all.
