When it comes to finding the perfect SUV for your family, the Ford brand knows what you’re looking for. If the 2019 Ford Explorer has been on your wishlist, Bill Colwell Ford is happy to give you a tour and show you how it stands on its own against competing models like the 2019 Chevy Traverse. 

2019 Ford Explorer Highlights

The 2019 Ford Explorer is one of the best-selling SUVs on the market, and that’s for several good reasons. While it’s big and off-road-ready, the Ford Explorer is also loaded with technology traits that simplify your driving life. Take for instance the active parking assist feature that helps you expertly maneuver into parking spots. The three rows of seating provide more room for family members or additional passengers.

Ford Explorer vs. Chevy Traverse

The Chevy Traverse is another large SUV with plenty of room for passengers. While it does offer room for eight passengers versus seven passengers in the Ford Explorer, it also offers a power-folding third row. While the Chevy Traverse may be slightly roomier, it falls behind in power. Its standard 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 310 horsepower, which is 55 horsepower less than the same powertrain in the Ford Explorer. The Ford Explorer also offers more engine options overall.   

Another area where the Ford Explorer edges out the Chevy Traverse is more advanced safety features. In addition to standard features like a rearview camera, the Ford Safe and Smart package bundles everything from blind-spot monitoring to rain-sensing wipers and adaptive cruise control with forward-collision warning.
