2020 BMW X6 vs. 2021 Chevrolet Traverse


Its signature roofline aside, the new 2020 BMW X6 mirrors its younger sibling the X5 in so many ways. It is important to note though that its improved with better acceleration and agility. It comes along with a sDrive4Oi base trim and a turbocharged 3.0 liter six cylinder engine capable or churning out 335 hp and 330 lb ft of torque. The engine is mated onto an 8 speed automatic transmission designed to send power to the rear wheels within seconds. With all that, 2020 BMW X6 stands tall as the top dog in BMW’s X family.

2021 Chevrolet Traverse comes along with a 3.6 V6 engine. This should be enough to guarantee ample power. Unfortunately, the Chevy is not as strong as it is comfortable. Its fuel efficiency is also questionable.

Design & Style

2020 BMW X6 features a refreshed exterior design accented by an illuminated BMW grille. Trapezoidal adaptive LED headlights, 21 or 22 inch alloy wheels and brand new color options to make your customization dreams a reality are also in the offing. Inside, you get to discover peerless class and luxury which starts with a standard Vernasca leather interior.  Additional highlights include a Sky Lounge Panoramic glass roof which is optional, head and cooled cup holders, ambient interior lighting and a 12.3 inch 2020 BMW iDrive touchscreen infotainment system.

2021’s Chevrolet Traverse guarantees spacious accommodation for up to 8 passengers. This includes a third row designed for both children and adults. The interior does not exude elegance too. The exterior on the other hand is impressive with advanced craftsmanship to improve dynamics.

Technology & Safety

There’s no doubt at all that BMW’s innovation game has been strong for decades. This is seen in what the X6 has to offer in terms of technology and safety. The beast comes along with Live Cockpit Professional digital instrument display perched on the dashboard to the driver’s right. There are countless ways to operate and interact with the system which include touchscreen, voice control and gesture control.  The choices seem overwhelming so you choose what works best for you. Navigation is stellar with adaptive cruise control system. Wireless charging, Wi-Fi hotspot and Bluetooth connectivity are all guaranteed.  Safety features include a full suite of airbags, blind spot monitoring, parking assist, forward collision warning, automated emergency braking and pedestrian detection.

Chevrolet blessed the 2021 Traverse’s cabin with a bounty of accessible USB ports, a user friendly infotainment system and what technophiles will most likely describe as average graphics. Safetywise, the Chevy boasts of automated emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.


Two smooth turbocharged engines give the 2020 BMW X6 its muscles. Both engines are perfect examples of BMW’s powertrain mastery and expertise, blending outstanding output with minimal turbo lag. It gets even better with the fact that the model comes along with one of BMW’s most iconic transmission systems – the ZF 8 speed Sport Steptronic unit. The transmission pairs with a 3.0 liter inline six cylinder engine to produce 335 hp and 330 hp. This means the beast is fast and agile. Its single twin scroll turbocharger means faster responses, smooth acceleration and rapid gear shifts.

The Bottom Line

The new 2020 BMW X6 guarantees safety, performance and fuel efficiency. It delivers exactly what it promises and goes the extra mile to ensure you ride in comfort. You will love its agility, rapid gear shifts and different drive modes.
