Chrysler Pacifica vs Chevy Traverse

If you’re looking for a used car dealership near Chicago, you might also happen to be looking for a Chrysler Pacifica or Chevy Traverse. Both of these vehicles are worth considering, particularly if you’ve got a lot of people and cargo to haul around. Both provide plenty of seating with even more space for cargo storage.

Still, there are some differences you should know about.


Chrysler Pacifica

Chrysler Pacifica

The Pacifica has been around for 35 years and is as steady as ever in its performance, efficiency, comfort, and utility.



The newest Pacificas come with 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, heated power side mirrors, power sliding doors, based on the model you choose. You’ll have your choice of colors on this popular minivan too. Chrysler Pacificas come in white, silver, black, red, different shades of blue, and many more colors.


The inside is what makes this passenger-hauling vehicle so popular. It has an upscale feel because it has high-quality materials, great insulation, plenty of cargo space and three rows of seating providing room for up to 7 people.


As you’d expect for a car you’re going to hauling people around Chicago in, the Pacifica gets great gas mileage with 18 to 19 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway. Of course, the older models will have lower fuel efficiencies.

Chevrolet Traverse

Chevy Traverse

The Chevy Traverse provides similar functionality to the Pacifica, but it doesn’t look like a typical minivan. For those who want plenty of seating without the look of a minivan, this vehicle is a great fit.



As mentioned, the Chevy Traverse is as close as you can get to looking like a classic Chevy SUV while still being considered a minivan, especially if you’re looking at the newest models. Of course, older models have an attractive exterior as well that makes for a more sporty looking vehicle than you’d typically see in the minivan class.


In all three rows of seating that the Traverse provides, the seating is very comfortable. Plus, all those rows of seats can fold so they’re completely flat to the floor, which makes for great cargo space when it’s needed. The middle seat slides and leans forward easily which makes for great access to the back. Also, you’ll be able to use your phone to listen to music because the Traverse comes with Apple and Android compatibility.


For such a large car, the Traverse has impressive gas mileage with 17 to 20 mpg in the city and 25 to 27 on the highway. More upscale models come with all-wheel drive and the various engine options provide between 257 and 310 horsepower.

We don’t blame you if you’re finding it hard to choose between a Pacifica and a Traverse. Both of these vehicles are great for families that do a lot of carpooling and road trips. The best way to find out the one that best fits you is to come to a used Ford dealership near Illinois in person and test drive each of these cars for yourself!
