The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mercury Mountaineer is just a dressed-up Ford Explorer, though its styling is a better match for family duty. Strong, sturdy, and spacious, yet carlike in some ways, the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse offers a very appealing compromise.
