A cursory look at the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse and the 2017 GMC Acadia would not reveal much of a difference, if at all, between the two crossover SUVs. After all, both are manufactured by General Motors (GM), and for a time they shared the same GM Lambda automobile platform. However, over the last few years, there have been a few changes that have widened the gap between the two vehicles—at the expense of the GMC model. The 2018 edition of the Traverse is a few steps ahead of the 2017 edition of the Acadia based on the following:

Interior Space

For the 2017 model year, the GMC Acadia, which had been produced for the past decade as a full-size crossover, was repositioned as a midsize vehicle. The Traverse, however, remained as a full-size crossover SUV, and this position carried on into the 2018 model year. So, if the amount of interior space is a priority, you’d be better off with the 2018 Traverse over the 2017 Acadia. Indeed, the gap in interior space can be exemplified by the cargo volume from each vehicle. While you can fold down the seating behind the front seats to produce up to 79 cubic feet on the Acadia, you’d have a peak cargo space of 98.5 cubic feet on the Traverse. That’s 19.5 more cubic feet of space for your luggage.

Seat Accomodation

Also, the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is the one to go with if you want to maximize the number of occupants. It is designed as a three-row vehicle regardless of trim. On the lower-level trims, you can fit up to eight people: the driver and a passenger on front seating, and three passengers on each of the bench-style seats on the second and third rows. Notably, eight-passenger capacity is still rare among full-size crossovers. Upper-level trims replace the bench-style seat on the second row with a pair of captain’s chairs, thus reducing maximum occupancy to seven. Although the GMC Acadia also offers a three-row configuration, the third row is only large enough to accommodate two people, thus keeping maximum occupancy at seven instead of eight like the Traverse. Indeed, GM allows the ability to replace the second-row bench with two captain’s chairs to reduce maximum capacity from seven to six. And on the brand-new All Terrain model, the third row is jettisoned altogether to keep capacity at five.

Ride and Handling

Although both the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse and the 2017 GMC are praised for their handling, the Traverse is singled out for its ride quality. It gets a major boost with its 2018 model. A 9-speed automatic transmission makes its debut for improving off-road capability—more specifically, performance on surfaces compromised by weather conditions. Also new is a switch-mode device that enables you to switch between a two-wheel setup and a four-wheel system when needed.
