The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
A new powertrain and crisp (but conservative) styling mean the Traverse is once again a contender in the three-row crossover race. The 2018 Honda Pilot ranks among the very best three-row crossover SUVs; it’s all about the packaging. The 2018 Nissan Pathfinder should be on the list for shoppers looking for a large crossover. The Pathfinder is highly functional, but not entirely interesting.
