Once you’re ready to test drive the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, take the drive from anywhere in the Cincinnati area to check it out at Tom Gill Chevrolet in Florence, KY.

Performance

If you’re looking for a vehicle with more standard power and a higher towing capacity, then you’ll want to go with the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse. Every version of the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Most versions of this engine are good for 281 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque, but the LTZ comes with a performance exhaust system that increases output to 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Take your pick between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, and enjoy a maximum towing capacity of 5200 pounds.

While the 2016 Dodge Journey is also offered with front-wheel or all-wheel drive, the base engine on the 2016 Dodge Journey is a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that only churns out 173 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque. You can move up to a 3.6L V6 engine, but even then you’ll only get a total output of 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. In addition, there’s no version of the Dodge Journey that can tow more than 2500 pounds.

Passenger and Cargo Space

Whether you prioritize fitting more people in the cabin or hauling more around town, the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse is your better choice. It provides standard seating for eight passengers in three rows of seats. In addition to that, you’ll have a maximum cargo volume of 116.3 cubic feet. The 2016 Dodge Journey, on the other hand, provides seating for five or seven passengers, depending on the model you choose. There’s not as much room for storage, either, as this model holds just 67.6 cubic feet.
