2013 Chevrolet Traverse (continued)

Summary

2013 Chevrolet Traverse

The Chevrolet Traverse is a good family vehicle and reasonably priced. If you're buying a family mover, these vehicles are more stylish than a minivan and more practical and efficient than a truck-based SUV. They make truck-based SUVs practically unnecessary for anyone who doesn't need the towing capacity or off-highway ability.

NewCarTestDrive.com correspondent Kirk Bell reported from Chicago; with G.R. Whale reporting from Los Angeles.
