Main Differences – Mazda CX-9 vs Chevy Traverse

You don’t need a truck in order to tow, and the Mazda CX-9 is evidence of that. With 310 pound-feet of torque, this sturdy SUV can tow up to 3,500 pounds behind it. The base model of the 2019 Traverse, on the other hand, can't even handle half of that. For many SUV owners, especially those who tow, this level of power is simply invaluable.

Better yet, this next-level strength doesn’t cost the Mazda CX-9 anything in terms of fuel economy. Despite its brute strength, the EPA estimated that the 2018 Mazda CX-9 can achieve up to 22 city-mpg and 28 highway-mpg, which translate to 24 combined-mpg. The 2019 Chevy Traverse, meanwhile, received estimates of fewer mpg across all types of terrain. In other words, wherever it goes, one can expect the Traverse to trail behind the Mazda CX-9.

The best of both worlds, the 2018 Mazda CX-9 is much more powerful and fuel-efficient than the 2019 Chevy Traverse. That said, it should come as no surprise that many SUV shoppers side with Mazda at the end of our 2018 Mazda CX-9 vs 2019 Chevy Traverse comparison.
