TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevrolet Traverse offers up all the practicality, space, and features that will make a big family happy--provided you prefer an understated style. The 2014 Dodge Durango is a great family hauler, and a top-notch utility infielder when you need extra brawn—made better this year with some important upgrades. With a new hybrid model, the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder has the Toyota Highlander and its hybrid model in its sights.
