The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Chevy Traverse is a three-row family mainstay with plentiful interior space. The 2020 Ford Explorer rediscovers its capable, outdoorsy side without becoming trucklike in any other respect. The 2021 Kia Sorento crossover finds a new look but the same mission: it’s the smaller hauler compared to the Telluride.
