If you’re comparing the 2023 Ford Explorer vs the 2023 Chevrolet Traverse, then one of the challenges you may face is understanding how the trim levels line up—if they do at all. The 2023 Ford Explorer is available at Stivers Ford Montgomery in eight trim levels: Base, XLT, ST-Line, Timberline, Limited, ST, King Ranch, and Platinum. The 2023 Chevrolet Traverse, on the other hand, is available through area Chevrolet dealerships in six trim levels: LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country.
The base Explorer and Traverse LS are the most straightforward comparison. Both are well-equipped for the price point, but the Explorer has a more robust collection of technologies. The XLT is equipped like a cross between the LT Cloth and LT Leather with most gaps being available as options. The ST-Line is comparable to the RS as these are both sportier trims. Chevrolet doesn’t offer anything comparable to Timberline, which is an off-road-oriented model. The Limited maps to the Premier pretty well. Chevrolet has no equivalent for the ST, which is a more performance-oriented model, or the King Ranch, which is a Western-themed take on the Limited, and the Platinum and High Country are comparable.
