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. If you're looking to make a statement while you shuffle the kids around, it's hard to beat the 2015 Ford Flex. The 2015 Honda Pilot is one of the most practical and family-friendly vehicles in its segment, despite its boxy, truck-like appearance.
