Pricing

The drivetrain in the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse4 is carefully engineered and built to last, and they're willing to back it with a warranty that's 40000 miles longer than the drivetrain warranty on the 2015 Ford Explorer5. . The difference in MSRP between the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse4 and the 2015 Ford Explorer5 may seem significant, until you consider what you're missing when you opt to save that $295: loads of standard features, some for safety and some just for fun. Suddenly, that $295 doesn't seem like much of a "savings" at all, does it?
