2015 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2015 Honda Pilot
2015 Chevrolet Traverse
2015 Honda Pilot
The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse and the 2015 Honda Pilot both offer families in Indiana a flexible, versatile, spacious option, for all adventures. If you need three rows of seating, paired with some off-road or all-condition capability, then you would be hard-pressed to find a better option than these two vehicles. But we know you also want the best option for your family, so you’re probably curious how these two vehicles really compare when you put them side-by-side. That’s why we’ve gone ahead and done the legwork for you, so you can see how they stack up.
Powertrains and Efficiency
A full load of passengers and cargo, and maybe a trailer in back, calls for enough power to get you onto the freeway with no drama. The Traverse gives you a 3.6L V6 that makes 281 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. The 2015 Pilot only makes 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque with its 3.5L V6 engine. These two crossovers get effectively identical fuel economy estimates from the EPA, so you’re not sacrificing anything for that extra muscle.
Warranty and Maintenance
You want a warranty so you can depend on your vehicle for the long haul. While both of these vehicles get a 36,000-mile/3-year basic warranty, the Chevy offers more coverage when it comes to powertrain and maintenance. The Chevy powertrain warranty and roadside assistance program is 100,000-miles/5-years, while the Honda powertrain warranty is only 60,000-miles, and the Honda roadside assistance program is only 36,000-miles/3-years. The Chevy traverse also gets two years of maintenance, while the Honda gets none.
Seating and Space
The impressive thing about the Traverse is that it can fit up to 24.4 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear seats, and up to 116.3 cubic feet total. The Pilot tops out at 18 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 87 cubic feet total. You’ll appreciate all that extra capacity when you’ve got a full load of passengers and cargo!
