2016 Chevy Traverse vs 2016 Nissan Pathfinder near Fredericksburg, VA

The Battle of SUVs

When it comes to SUVs, the Chevy Traverse is more than well-equipped to handle all of your needs. Whether you have a growing family or like to explore on weekends, the 2016 Traverse is the vehicle for you. To see how it stands against one of its top competitors, we put together a 2016 Chevy Traverse vs 2016 Nissan Pathfinder near Fredericksburg, VA, comparison here at Pohanka Chevrolet. See the many ways the Traverse overtakes the Pathfinder in more ways than one.

Modern technology is a necessity in vehicles these days, and the Traverse is outfitted with the latest features. To make reversing out of a spot at Westwood Shopping Mall a breeze, all Traverse trims are equipped with a Rear Vision Camera1, which has integrated guidelines for effortless maneuvering. The RearView Monitor2 in the Pathfinder is standard only on top trims – not all. When you want to listen to your favorite song on repeat or make/take phone calls safely, Bluetooth®3 capability allows you to. This feature is standard on all trims of the Traverse, but unfortunately only on higher trims of the Pathfinder.

In the Chevy Traverse, you’ll be able to bring along seven of your favorite people thanks to its capability of 8-passenger seating. You can either opt for 8-passenger seating with a second-row bench seat, or 7-passenger seating with second-row captain’s chairs. The Nissan Pathfinder doesn’t offer the luxury of offering 8-passenger seating at all, as it only comes standard with 7-passenger seating in all trims.

The 2016 Chevy Traverse vs 2016 Nissan Pathfinder near Fredericksburg, VA, continues with the amount of cargo space available in each SUV, with the Traverse prevailing against the Pathfinder once again. Behind the third-row of the Chevy Traverse, there is 24.4 cubic ft. of cargo room4 to fill. The Nissan Pathfinder can’t quite keep up with its lowly 16 cubic ft. of space5 behind its third-row. With the third-row folded flat, the Traverse’s space opens to 70.3 cubic ft.4, while the Pathfinder’s only offers 42.4 cubic ft5. With all rows folded completely flat, the Pathfinder provides 79.8 cubic ft. of space5, which pales in comparison to the Traverse’s 116.3 cubic ft. of total room4. When you want to bring along bigger toys, you’ll be able to easier than ever in the Traverse as it is able to tow up to 5,200 lb6. The Pathfinder can only tow a maximum of 5,000 lb7.

Under the hood, the Chevy Traverse also trumps the Pathfinder in terms of power.
