2020 CHEVY TRAVERSE VS BUICK ENCLAVE
Exciting drives are ahead when you’re behind the wheel of an SUV that delivers capable performance and the amenities that make your drive unique. Are you ready to take your next trip to Wexford, Pittsburgh, or Cranberry Township from behind the wheel of a spacious and well-appointed SUV?
It’s time to check out the Baierl Chevrolet comparison of the 2020 Chevy Traverse vs. Buick Enclave. In the space below, we’ll connect you to the facts and figures you need to know about these SUVs prior to making a purchase.
TRAVERSE VS ENCLAVE PERFORMANCE SPECS
Here are some of the key Chevy Traverse performance specs worth mentioning:
• 3.6L V6 engine
• 310 horsepower
• 266 lb-ft of torque
• Variable Valve Timing and Spark Ignition Direct Injection
As you can see, the Traverse engine is a powerful option. With the V6 power, you’ll be able to take the Traverse on city streets, but you’ll really get to see it in action on the highway. Under certain conditions, the Stop/Start technology can automatically shut off the engine to save fuel. For instance, when you’re at a stoplight for a minute or two, the engine will shut down. When it’s time to go again, the engine seamlessly restarts and you’re on your way!
The Buick Enclave also carries a 310-horsepower V6 engine under its hood, giving it similar capability to the Traverse. However, we have to give the slight edge to the 2020 Traverse’s fuel economy. It gets an EPA-estimated 18 city/27 highway MPG, while the Buick Enclave only gets an EPA-estimated 18 city/26 highway MPG.
CHEVY TRAVERSE VS BUICK ENCLAVE INTERIOR AMENITIES
Compare the Traverse vs. Enclave interiors, and you’ll quickly find these two vehicles have a lot in common: large touch-screens in the center console, comfortable seats, and plenty of headroom and legroom for all passengers.
In fact, both models come standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, so making connections through their touch-screens is a breeze. Just hook up your smartphone using the USB port, and popular apps and features will appear right on the screen in front of you. There’s no need to have to look down at your phone anymore when you have all the features you want within your line of sight.
One key difference between these two SUVs? The Chevy Traverse’s interior offers seating for up to eight people. Meanwhile, the Buick Enclave tops out at seven passengers. When you’re trying to fit in that extra passenger, the Traverse is the SUV you’ll need.
CHEVY TRAVERSE VS BUICK ENCLAVE SAFETY FEATURES
When it comes to safety features, the Traverse and the Enclave deliver them. Both vehicles come equipped with a standard Rear Vision Camera. When you’re traveling at low speeds while in reverse, you’ll see what’s going on directly behind the vehicle with guidelines laid over the image to show your path and space.
Available Forward Collision Alert comes in handy, too, letting you know a front-end collision is possible. It will also alert you if you’re following a vehicle too closely, so you can make a quick adjustment and follow at a safe distance.
Optional Front Pedestrian Braking is a unique feature, too, with this system alerting you to a potential collision with a pedestrian up ahead. This feature can also reduce collision severity by applying the brakes if you’re unable to react in time.
