The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.6
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. The 2013 Honda Pilot looks tough and truck-like from the outside, yet inside it's one of the better family haulers.
