Sport utility vehicles are all the rage these days, and it makes perfect sense when you think about it. The world is growing. People continue to raise families and need enough room to bring everyone along for whatever journey is happening in any given week.

Take off on a camping trip with your significant other or your friends and have ample room for all your gear. Crossover models add to this versatility by making the ride an efficient one, and these types of vehicles have so much to offer. If you are looking for a midsize crossover SUV, there is crtainly no shortage of them available. Which one is right for you? Let's look at the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs the 2017 Chevy Traverse.

More horsepower and towing capacity in the 2017 Pathfinder

In order to carry a full load of people or cargo, an SUV is going to need plenty of power under the hood. The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder offers up 284 horsepower, edging past the 281 horsepower offered by the 2017 Traverse. Perhaps that is why the 2017 Pathfinder, when properly equipped, is also able to tow more weight behind it than the 2017 Traverse. At 6,000 maximum towing capacity, the Pathfinder gives you a lot of options as far as what you will be able to tow along the way. When you factor in the 79.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity, that adds up to so many fun options for what you can carry.

Does more power mean less efficiency? Not with the 2017 Pathfinder, which still gets 20 city and 27 highway miles per gallon, again beating out the 2017 Traverse. That is the kind of fuel economy your wallet can enjoy. The Pathfinder also gives you access to such features as SiriusXM® Satellite Radio right away as a standard feature, which is not the case with the Traverse.

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is a quality option for you and your full life, giving you space, comfort, power, and efficiency to last.
