2016 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. 2016 Chevrolet Traverse
For families looking for a spacious vehicle with plenty of room, generous features, and confident performance, Chevrolet has some excellent choices available. Among the most popular is a pair of SUVs: the 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe and the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse. While these vehicles have more of what today’s drivers in Florence and Cincinnati are looking for, it’s a good idea to take a closer look to see how they differ. See how they stack up before making your way to Tom Gill Chevrolet.
A First look at Both Vehicles
2016 Chevrolet Tahoe
- Full-size, truck-based SUV
- Available four-wheel drive
- 5.3L V8 engine
2016 Chevrolet Traverse
- Large crossover SUV

- Perfect five-star overall government crash test rating
The 2016 Chevrolet Traverse is also quite spacious and also gets three rows for passengers. Standard setup is similar to the Tahoe’s with first-row captain’s chairs and second- and third-row bench seats, providing a standard seating for eight. You can also go with second-row captain’s chairs, which decreases seating to seven. Unlike the Tahoe, there is no nine-passenger option on the Traverse. However, cargo volume on the Traverse measures 24.4 cubic feet in back, which can grow to 116.3 cubic feet.
Meanwhile, the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse comes with a 3.6L V6 engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. It delivers 281 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque to either a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive system, and a properly equipped version can tow up to 5,200 pounds. If you opt for the LTZ trim, you’ll get a dual exhaust system that increases output to 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.
- 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe Price: MSRP starting at $47,000
- 2016 Chevrolet Traverse Price: MSRP starting at $31,205
Should You Choose the Tahoe or the Traverse?
For drivers wanting a practical and accessible way to get the look, feel, and spacious convenience of an SUV but who are satisfied with V6 power and available all-wheel drive, the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse may prove the better option. While maximum passenger space is eight, it’s worth noting the higher standard cargo capacity measurements in the Traverse, furthering its attractiveness for large families.
