Not only is the 2020 Ford Explorer more powerful than the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse, but it also offers more towing capability and stronger fuel economy. That said, the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse is not without its own strengths. The SUV boasts ample passenger room, great cargo space, seating for up to eight individuals and a standard Wi-Fi hotspot. While the Traverse has more cargo space overall (98.2 cu.ft. vs. The Explorer’s 87.7 cu.ft.), it’s also a longer SUV. Like the Traverse, the 2020 Ford Explorer is standard with a Wi-Fi hotspot and offers a comfortable, high-tech cabin with plenty of room for passengers to stretch out. It seats up to six but is available to seat up to seven.

Where the 2020 Ford Explorer shines is its incredible towing capability, dynamic driving experience and a long list of high-tech features. Unlike the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse that has some of its safety technologies available only on high-end trims, the 2020 Ford Explorer is standard with Ford’s Co-Pilot360 suite of safety technologies. These include blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning and mitigation, pre-collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking and much more.
