2016 Toyota 4Runner vs 2016 Chevrolet Traverse

With 4-wheel drive, you can take the 2016 Toyota 4-Runner off the highway and on to the trail

Are you on the lookout for a new SUV? Are the compact models too small and weak to handle your crew, cargo, and occasional heavy towing? Is a full size version way more that what you will ever need? Don’t worry, we have the perfect solution: a midsize SUV! These models fit right in the middle of the SUV family and are very versatile for a variety of drivers with different needs. Most brands have at least one (oftentimes two) midsize SUV model in their vehicle lineup, so it can be hard to choose the right one. Let us help by presenting a comparison of the 2016 Toyota 4Runner vs 2016 Chevrolet Traverse.

Under the hoods of the midsize SUVs are engines that vary slightly from each other in terms of size. The 270 horsepower 4.0L V6 that is under the hood of the 2016 Toyota 4Runner is able to tow 5000 pounds and can reach a fuel economy of 17 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. The most significant mechanical difference between the 2016 Toyota 4Runner and 2016 Chevrolet Traverse is that the 2016 4Runner can be equipped with 4-wheel drive, while the 2016 Traverse can be outfitted with All-wheel drive. Both of these drivetrains can be extremely helpful on wet and icy roads, but the 4-wheel drive makes the 2016 4Runner ideal for off-road adventures.

Lots of Room is Available for Crew and Cargo in 2016 Toyota 4Runner

One reason that drivers love the 2016 4Runner is because it is able to accommodate either 5 or 7 passengers. While all 2016 4Runner models are the same size, 7-passenger trim levels are outfitted with a third row of seats, plus 9 cubic feet of cargo volume. If you chose a 2-row 5-passenger variation (or if you collapse your third row of seating), there will be 46 cubic feet to utilize for luggage, merchandise, and gear. If you still need more room for gear, the second row of seats (and third if applicable) can be collapsed to allow for a total cargo capacity of 88 cubic feet.

In addition to having plenty of room for passengers and gear, the interior of the 2016 Toyota 4Runner has an incredible feature that makes it a very fun ride, no matter if it is on the highway or on the trail. This feature is none other than the Entune infotainment system! Entune comes standard in the 2016 4Runner and it allows drivers to enjoy their favorite music. Higher levels of the system, which can typically be found in higher trims, include navigation and research functions.
