Fuel Economy

While it may appear as if the 2017 Chevy Traverse and the Ford Explorer have identical fuel economies, there is one very big difference: fuel tank capacity. What difference does the Chevy Traverse’s 3.4 gallon greater tank capacity make? Well, if you drove an average of 20,000 miles annually, you would have to fill up your Ford Explorer 9 times more than the Chevy Traverse each year! By equipping the 2017 Traverse with this extra fuel tank capacity, Chevrolet illustrates its belief that you should spend less time at the gas pump and more time on the open road enjoying your vehicle.

Though both vehicles come with the Roadside Assistance Program, the Chevy Traverse’s lasts longer. In fact, Chevy’s Roadside Assistance is with you for 40,000 more miles than Ford’s! This impressive warranty coverage plus an additional 2-year Maintenance Warranty makes the 2017 Chevy Traverse the clear choice for ensured vehicle reliability, and it exemplifies Chevy’s dedication to you.
