ORO Ford offers the 2024 Ford Explorer in seven- and six-passenger configurations. The 2024 Chevrolet Traverse provides seating for either eight or seven, but the third row doesn’t really accommodate three adults in a practical sense. Headroom and legroom are comparable in all three rows. Hip room and should room are superior in the Explorer, and that makes a difference with adults in the second- and third-row seats and on longer trips in particular. Dedicated cargo space is comparable as well. The Traverse goes offer more on paper, but cargo measurements are not standardized. If this may be a deciding factor for you, then you’ll definitely want to compare these in person.
