TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse has aged gracefully; it's still one of GM's best minivan replacements. The 2017 Dodge Durango tows like an SUV, drives like a crossover—but crash test scores are a dull spot. The 2017 Ford Explorer adds a sport appearance package and Sync 3, both of which are important to today's SUV buyers.
