The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
For those who need to get work done, but with some style and comfort, practicality still reigns in the 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe. Strong, sturdy, and spacious, yet carlike in some ways, the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse offers a very appealing compromise.
