Pros: Expansive, versatile passenger and cargo room; ride comfort, decent handling for a vehicle of this size and weight
Cons: Large turning circle compromises close-quarters maneuverability; touchscreen buttons are sometimes unresponsive; prices get steep on higher-end models
CG Says: After its substantial freshening for 2013, the Chevrolet Traverse gets available forward collision alert and lane-departure warning for 2014. Traverse combines space, power, and decent road manners into a fine package that looks and feels more expensive than it is. If you are shopping midsize SUVs, Traverse should be on your list.
