2018 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2018 Chevrolet Traverse

Are you currently looking for a car that you can purchase with your hard-earned money? We bet you have some names on your list by this time. If you have both the 2018 Porsche Cayenne and the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse on your list then we can help you make a decision as to which you should choose between these two. Read this comparison and you will find the answer later on.

Design & Style

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne is a picture of toughness and elegance, all rolled into one. While it strived hard to make sure that modern-day drivers will say yes when purchasing one, it also made sure that solidness in construction is not compromised. Top notch quality materials were also used to make the interior of this car. This makes it a really great car that offers the level of style and comfort you are looking for in a car that you want to buy.

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, on the other hand, has its own touch of class and ruggedness on the outside as well. You will also applaud the use of leather upholstery inside it. The problem though is the fact that it lacks elements of luxury as evidenced by all other materials used to construct the cabin.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne is gifted with a fully-functional infotainment system that is truly one of the most impressive sets in its class. You can use it for smartphone integration purposes as well. Along the lines of safety, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and blind spot monitoring in the Cayenne work as expected.

For the 2018 Chevy Traverse, you will see the MyLink infotainment system, a technology that is present in all Chevy car models. This may be a new system but it is already impressive. It is easy to use that passengers and drivers will learn using it in just one go. For safety features, however, it will be hard not to notice that the adaptive cruise control does not work as expected.


One of the main reasons behind why people love the 2018 Porsche Cayenne is the presence of a powerful V6, 3.6-liter engine under its hood. This engine squeezes in a power good enough to pump up to 420 horses and a torque of 406lb-ft. The Chevy Traverse has the same engine size as well. However, the difference in maximum yield is evident when compared to the Cayenne since the Traverse only reaches up to a maximum output of 266lb-ft of torque and 310 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

While the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse has its great set of features, it does not defeat the 2018 Porsche Cayenne. The Porsche is just simply the better option between these two thus it must be your next car.
