Comparing the Chevrolet Traverse With the Honda Pilot
The Chevy Traverse is a big vehicle that seats up to eight people. It’s also a big purchase, and one Patriot Chevrolet Limerick in Limerick, PA, wants you to feel confident about in your buying decision. The Honda Pilot also offers seating for up to eight, and has a few of the same features — but you still can’t go wrong with choosing a Chevy Traverse, and here’s why.
Both the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse and the 2022 Honda Pilot have V6 engines and nine-speed automatic transmissions, but the power play goes to the Chevy Traverse.
A 3.6L engine in the Chevy Traverse provides 310 horsepower and 266 lbs-ft of torque. The Honda Pilot contains a 3.5L engine, with 280 horsepower and 262 lbs-ft of torque.
The Chevy Traverse performs better for your budget, too, with a starting price of $35,700, compared to the Honda Pilot starting price of $38,830. We can help you with finance options for a Chevy Traverse!
Cargo and Space Comparison
One of the main reasons to purchase a big vehicle is for the cargo space — you want to be able to haul not just people, but purchases, too. In cubic feet, here are the numbers you’ll get with each vehicle:
Behind Row Three—Chevy Traverse: 23; Honda Pilot: 16.5
Behind Row Two—with the third row folded, Chevy Traverse: 57.8; Honda Pilot: 46.8
Behind Row One—with the second and third rows folded, Chevy Traverse: 98.2; Honda Pilot: 83.9.
The Chevy Traverse makes things easy to haul! And you can ask us here at your nearest Chevy dealer how to configure the seats to match your cargo needs.
As mentioned, both vehicles seat eight people, but the space for passengers is different—especially in the third row. Travelling companions will appreciate 33.48 inches of leg room in the Chevy Traverse, and 48.5 inches of hip room. The Honda Pilot is a tighter squeeze, with only 31.9 inches of leg room and 44.6 inches of hip room.
There’s even a bit more room in the gas tank of the Chevy Traverse — 21.7 gallons compared to the Honda Pilot’s 19.5 gallons.
