TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevy Traverse may look a little sedate, but it offers plenty of comfort and practicality for the whole family. The 2015 Dodge Durango hits the sweet spot between crossover and SUV. The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder reels off its crossover basics with ease, but doesn't get too adventurous in handling or off-roading.
