2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. Its Competition

2018 Chevrolet Traverse

The standard-bearer for the segment, the 2017 Honda Pilot is the best all-around three-row crossover from a mainstream brand.

Spacious and affordable, the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is a more efficient take on family hauling.

The 2017 Ford Explorer has something for everyone, with an available turbocharged 4-cylinder and a 365-hp, twin-turbo V-6 in the Explorer Sport.

The best three-row to drive, the 2017 Dodge Durango is a family crossover for enthusiasts.

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is a new guy that adds a dose of Teutonic style to a very American segment.

Quick Specs
7.4
A new powertrain and crisp (but conservative) styling mean the Traverse is once again a contender in the three-row crossover race.
6.5
The 2018 Dodge Durango prioritizes fun over practicality, but we’re fine with that.
6.7
The 2018 Ford Explorer has pulled off a graceful transition from clumsy off-roader to genteel family wagon.
7.3
The 2018 Honda Pilot ranks among the very best three-row crossover SUVs; it’s all about the packaging.
6.5
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.
6.5
The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas does little wrong, but it's light on personality and a little low-rent inside—and it guzzles fuel. It's worth a look, but mostly rivals do more for less.
