The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.0
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Chevrolet Traverse moves families with quiet confidence. The 2021 Ford Explorer is recognizable, but new. It should be on every family SUV shopper’s list. The 2022 Honda Pilot is one of the oldest three-row crossover designs out there, but it has aged well overall.
