Pricing

The drivetrain in the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse2 is carefully engineered and built to last, and they're willing to back it with a warranty that's 40,000 miles longer than the drivetrain warranty on the 2015 Honda Pilot6. The difference in MSRP between the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse2 and the 2015 Honda Pilot6 may seem significant, until you consider what you're missing when you opt to save that $1,125: loads of standard features, some for safety and some just for fun. Suddenly, that $1,125 doesn't seem like much of a "savings" at all, does it?
