2017 Chevrolet Traverse

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: For 2017, Chevrolet Traverse changes the name of its topline model from LTZ to Premier and adds a new budget-priced LS Base model. LS Base deletes satellite radio and is not available with all-wheel drive. Otherwise, Traverse is unchanged pending a redesign for the 2018 model year. 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.
