Once someone becomes a parent, they grow a sixth protective sense. No matter whether you’re a parent to humans or dogs, this instinct kicks in to ensure your baby’s protection day in and day out.

Protective Instincts

To lend you a helping hand on the road, the Nissan Pathfinder and the Chevy Traverse can step in.

On both models, you’ll find impressive safety suites that share these features:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • High Beam Assist
Safety Comes Standard

However, if you’re looking for more standard safety to keep your kin out of harm’s way or to protect the new driver in your family, the Pathfinder is for you. This SUV is equipped with these standard features on every model:

  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Intelligent Driver Alertness
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Rear Sonar System

While the Traverse offers a few similar systems, they do not come standard as they do in the Pathfinder.

Family vacations create long-lasting memories that your kids will be able to share with their friends and their future families down the road.

Rugged Roots

Fortunately, both the Pathfinder and the Traverse make any camping trip, staycation, or retreat smooth sailing, with their standard 3.5-liter V6 engines and 9-speed automatic transmissions.

However, if your trip consists of long hours on the road or a rockier path, the Nissan Pathfinder will be better suited to you. On its base model, you’ll find the Drive and Terrain Mode switch that comes with five modes. This system can be upgraded to the Drive and Terrain Mode dial selector with seven modes!

You’ll also be able to find your driving sweet spot, with the Traverse’s Drive Mode Selector. However, it only comes with four modes. To make sure you can keep your trip on its intended path, the Nissan may be your best choice.

With the open road before you and a crew of kids in the back, some entertainment is needed to help pass the time.

Seamless Technology Bonding

Fortunately, both SUVs come with infotainment systems that offer:

  • Apple CarPlay® integration
  • Android Auto™ integration
  • Bluetooth®
  • Voice Recognition

However, you may be able to pick and choose your apps with greater ease on the Nissan’s 8-inch NissanConnect® display compared to the Chevy’s 7-inch screen. While the Traverse’s display can be updated to an 8-inch screen, the Pathfinder outdoes it once again with an optional 9-inch display.

Prominent Driver Info

Not only can you stay connected to your music, podcast, or audiobook in crystal-clear quality, you’ll also be able to keep track of safety alerts and important vehicle information via the Pathfinder’s Advanced Drive-Assist® Display. This digital instrument cluster measures 12.3 inches!

On the other hand, the Chevy Traverse only offers an optional 8-inch diagonal color Driver Information Center. While impressive, it’s not as large as the Nissan’s available display that showcases your most-needed information in enhanced quality.
