If you have decided to drive home in a new SUV soon, your attention may be intently focused on Chevrolet models. Chevy has been a leader in the auto industry for years, and it has several appealing options available. The 2019 Chevy Equinox is a compact crossover SUV, and its most recent major overhaul occurred with the 2018 model year. In addition, a few thoughtful updates have been made to the 2019 model. Another option is the 2019 Chevy Traverse, which is a midsize crossover SUV. Like the Equinox, its last major update took place with last year’s model. Both of these vehicles have impressive features and undeniable appeal, and reading more about them may help you to decide which model to take home soon.


As you compare the Equinox to the Traverse, you will immediately notice a difference in exterior dimensions. The Equinox is smaller in all dimensions than the Traverse, and it provides you with passenger seating for five adults. The Traverse is a larger vehicle that offers three rows of seats. The exterior of the Equinox has a more well-rounded appearance with a substantial slope to the roof and the hood. The Traverse has a taller stance with only moderate sloping, and this gives it a solid presence on the road. In addition, the character line on the Traverse is more defined, and its grille is larger. Another notable difference is that the fog lights on the Equinox are robust and encompass the entire casing. The Traverse’s fog lights are rounded and have a floating look in the casing.


From a performance perspective, you will notice that the Equinox is well-equipped regardless of the powertrain that you select. The base trim level is loaded with a Turbo 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine. It is paired with an automatic transmission, front wheel drive, an advanced stability management system, anti-lock brakes and more. The base Traverse is outfitted with a 3.6-liter, V6 engine with an auto transmission. It comes with similar features as the Equinox has, and it also has an auto start-stop feature.


The 2019 Equinox and the 2019 Traverse are available in numerous trims, and the features, powertrain and cost vary dramatically based on the trim that you decide to take home. Because the Traverse is much larger, it is understandably more expensive than the Equinox. Both of these vehicles are well-equipped with similar features. Some of these include a premium sound system, power windows, power door locks, a 7-inch color display screen for the infotainment system, steering wheel-mounted sound and cruise control buttons, a customizable driver’s instrumentation cluster, a remote panic alarm, keyless entry and a 4G LTE wireless hotspot.

The best way to decide which of these Chevy SUVs is right for you is to get behind the wheel of both of them. Stop by our Chevy dealership soon for friendly assistance from our sales team.
