How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

If you're considering the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse, you're probably shopping for room and some cargo-carrying capabilities.

Depending on whether you most value passenger or cargo space, you could look to other crossovers or more traditional truck-based SUVs.

While there are full-size SUVs such as the Chevrolet Tahoe that come with more powerful V-8 engines, enhanced towing, and off-road capabilities, the Traverse does quite a bit better in fuel economy.

The Traverse also beats smaller mid-size SUVs like the Ford Explorer and Jeep Commander, thanks to its more spacious cabin and carlike dynamics.

Probably coming closest in capability, performance, and fuel economy to the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse are vehicles like the eight-seater Honda Pilot and the fashionable Ford Flex.

Both provide V-6 power and roomy interiors, and they score better marks in the styling department when placed side-by-side with the Traverse.

The Flex offers an especially strong, passenger-friendly interior layout, also with three comfortable rows of seating.

The 2009 Honda Pilot looks more SUV-like in its second edition, but it has the room of a minivan, along with some notable styling miscues and expensive choices to make from the options list.

The 2008 Jeep Commander is good Jeep (a trail-capable vehicle), but it's not a great people mover.
