When it comes to three-row SUVs, the 2017 Honda Pilot and the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse stand out from the pack. They feature enough room for the whole team with space for up to eight passengers, and they both include powerful V6 engines. However, only one model will save at the pump, as well as offering more overall utility and passenger comfort. Check out this comparison from Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake to find out the winner.

Which SUV is Best for You?

One big factor you’ll want to consider is fuel economy. It doesn’t just affect the vehicle from the beginning, but over the whole life of the car; and the vehicle with superior fuel economy can save Elgin drivers money in the long run. Let’s see how these two models compare:

  • The 2017 Honda Pilot LX with front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission reaches 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway/22 mpg combined*.
  • The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse LS with front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission can only manage 15 mpg city/22 mpg highway/18 mpg combined.

As you can see, Honda engineering allows the Pilot to reach superior fuel economy numbers. That kind of difference might be understandable if the Pilot was a smaller vehicle, but it actually offers greater passenger comfort. With more overall passenger volume, it lets your family stretch out and enjoy the ride. Lastly, many customers will plan on using their new SUV for towing, and there’s a big difference between these two models. When properly equipped, the base trim Pilot will tow up to 3,500 lbs, while the Traverse only reaches 2,000 lbs. There’s just no comparison—for better base trim efficiency and utility, choose the Honda Pilot today!
