2020 Chevy Traverse vs. 2020 GMC Acadia

Bradenton drivers looking at GM SUV models have a wealth of options, but one common matchup tends to intrigue: the 2020 Chevy Traverse vs. GMC Acadia. These spacious but capable vehicles are exceptional in many respects, with the 2020 Traverse pushing the envelope even more than its peer on some important specs. Cox Chevrolet covers the details you want to know about how the new Chevrolet Traverse vs. GMC Acadia shakes out, below!

Chevrolet Traverse vs. GMC Acadia: Interior Space

One of the major factors in your choice of SUV is space: how much of it, its function for both passenger and driver, and available cargo room for when you need it on Sarasota road trips. The Chevrolet Traverse vs. GMC Acadia matchup shows us two very inviting cabins, but the Traverse proves to be a smarter buy for shoppers who crave versatility:

2020 Chevy Traverse Dimensions

  • Passenger Volume: 157.2 cubic feet for up to 8 passengers
  • Cargo Volume: 23.0 cubic feet with all seats up, 98.2 cubic feet with all seats down
  • Front Legroom: 41.0 inches

2020 GMC Acadia Dimensions

  • Passenger Volume: 143.8 cubic feet for up to 7 passengers
  • Cargo Volume: 12.8 cubic feet with all seats up, 79.0 cubic feet with all seats down
  • Front Legroom: 41.0 inches

For those wanting to maximize passenger space on big trips outside Tampa or those who require greater cargo space for carrying gear to local adventure spots, the 2020 Chevy Traverse is the optimal choice.
