The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse hits a sweet spot for SUV replacers, with none of the flamboyance of a real SUV and more practical gas mileage and interior space. With an unmistakable design, strong performance, and a roomy, comfortable interior, the 2013 Ford Flex proves that three-row crossovers don't have to be boring. The 2013 Honda Pilot looks tough and truck-like from the outside, yet inside it's one of the better family haulers.
