Engine and Towing Capacity

When it comes to comparing these two SUVs, let’s start with the basics. The Mazda CX-9 features a standard SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower. The 2019 Chevy Traverse, on the other hand, features a 3.6L V6 engine. With 310 horsepower, this standard engine is much more powerful than that of the Mazda CX-9.

All this extra power contributes to a maximum available towing capacity of 5,000 pounds with the Traverse, while the Mazda CX-9 is stuck at 3,500 pounds. The Traverse allows you to take your small RV or speed boat to the lake for the weekend. However, with the Mazda CX-9, you will have to leave them at home.

Protect Your Family

If you’re looking for a safe SUV to protect you and your family, the 2019 Chevy Traverse and Mazda CX-9 are good options. They both offer such safety technologies, such as Front Pedestrian Braking and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, which are designed to keep you alert and safe in a variety of different conditions.

There are some features that the Traverse offers, though, that you cannot find on the Mazda CX-9, such as Teen Driver. Teen Driver technology assists you in keeping your new driver safe by automatically muting the audio until everyone in the front-seat is buckled in. It can even turn on all the available safety features to ensure your teen is completely protected.
When your teen is done driving, you can access a progress report of their driving habits to ensure they are staying safe and making all the necessary improvements. Unfortunately, you cannot monitor your young driver this way in the Mazda CX-9.
