TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse has aged gracefully; it's still one of GM's best minivan replacements. The 2017 Honda Pilot is a capable, refined crossover SUV with all the goodness of a minivan, save for the sliding doors. The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder offers good space for seven in a composed, quiet environment and it manages a some decent capability for off-road duty and towing.
