Traverse vs. Acadia: Which of These Fraternal Twins Is Right for You?

The Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia are often thought to be two sides of the same coin, which, as it turns out, is a little unfair. In the not-too-distant past, these vehicles had few differences between them save for some superficial styling elements. In the past couple of years, though, the situation has changed. They still ride on the same platform (which is also shared by the Buick Enclave and Cadillac XT5) and share most mechanical components, but everything else, from interior styling to equipment, has begun to diverge.

If you’ve shopped for either (or both) of these vehicles, the results of this comparison might surprise you. Both reflect GM’s extensive experience in building crossovers, but one is clearly better than the other.
