Fuel Economy

Comparing the fuel economies of the 2017 Chevy Traverse and the Jeep Compass, both vehicles have an advantage over one another. The Jeep Compass’ advantage is its superior gas mileage. And the Chevy Traverse’s advantage is that it has a 8.4 gallon greater fuel tank capacity than the Jeep Compass.

Both of these advantages are quite different. So which do you value more? Your time or your money?


Vehicle Safety Rating

What difference does one star make? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 5-star rating system is designed to inform drivers of vehicle safety in three primary categories: a Front Crash Test, a Side Crash Test, and a Rollover probability rating. Because the Overall Vehicle Safety Score combines the three scores in these categories, one star can make a huge difference.

…And there is a huge difference in safety between the 2017 Chevy Traverse and the Jeep Compass. While both crossovers were awarded 5-Stars in their Side Crash Tests and 4-Stars in their Rollover tests, the Chevy Traverse was also awarded 5-Stars in its Front Crash Test while the Jeep Compass was only awarded 3-Stars!

Why drive without that safety and peace-of-mind that two additional Stars would bring? Chevrolet’s consistent excellence in vehicle safety makes the 2017 Chevy Traverse the best and safest choice in crossover vehicles.
