You may have noticed that in 2018 the Chevrolet Traverse received a major overhaul in its design, and part of the reason for that was so it could fit in even better with the stellar Chevrolet crossover and SUV lineup. That design continues into 2019, and indeed, the current Traverse looks like the younger sibling of the Tahoe. So, what exactly are the differences between these two vehicles? Let’s look at a 2019 Chevy Traverse vs 2019 Chevy Tahoe comparison to get the answers.

No matter which vehicle you choose, you will be getting a high-quality SUV that can provide ample comfort, safety, and reliability for families. You can take advantage of such available features as available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi, a vibrant touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and so much more. Really, in a choice between the Traverse and the Tahoe, it comes down to your budget and what you need specifically in terms of passenger and cargo space, as well as your plans to use the vehicle for towing.

The 2019 Traverse has a significantly lower base MSRP, and if eight seats and a 5,000 maximum towing capacity will do the trick, the Traverse would be a great choice. If you have a larger family and intend to seat as many as nine people, perhaps on a road trip while towing a big camper, you might want to look at the Tahoe as your option instead.
