2016 Chevy Traverse vs 2016 Dodge Durango
When you are in the market for a vehicle but a crossover just won't do it in the space department, it's time to graduate to an SUV. So, what do you need in an SUV? Are you using it as the main source of transportation for family obligations? Then you better get something good on gas. Maybe you need something larger to fit all of your camping equipment? Then cargo space is key. Or maybe you just want something that can tow that isn't a truck. Whatever you are looking for, there's an SUV out there for you, and to make your decision easier we have compared the 2016 Chevy Traverse and the 2016 Dodge Durango. Both are great mid-size SUVs, but each offer something a little different to the driver.
The 2016 Chevy Traverse offers a smooth, stable ride and a luxurious, attractive interior with bucket seats and a third-row split-folding bench seat making it an 8-passenger vehicle, while the 2016 Dodge Durango has a little less space, offering 7-passenger seating but better fuel economy at 27 miles per gallon on the highway.

If you are buying a mid-size SUV for the family, safety will be one of your main concerns. Both SUVs come with an abundance of safety features, however, the Chevy Traverse seems to have a better handle on the technological side of safety via OnStar. The Traverse comes with standard OnStar Automatic Crash Response, OnStar Crisis Alert, OnStar Emergency Services, OnStar Hands-Free Calling, OnStar Roadside Assistance, and OnStar Vehicle Diagnostic. Also available is Forward Collison Alert with Lane Departure Warning and Side Blind Zone Alert. The 2016 Durango comes standard with Rain Brake Support, Remote Keyless Entry, and Sentry Key theft Deterrent System.
Where the 2016 Chevy Traverse really shines, though, is in the space department. With bigger overall dimensions and cargo capacity that beats out the Durango by 31.8 cubic feet, there's plenty of room in the Traverse for all your stuff. Plus, with an extra passenger spot, you can haul the group to whatever camping trip or sporting event you have planned without leaving anyone behind.
