2009 Chevrolet Traverse LT1 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Looked at Highlander and Pilot and the Traverse beats both hands down. Has a very quiet and smooth ride. Exterior styling is superb. Overall build quality is very impressive. Don't assume Japanese competitors in the large midsize SUV segment are better, there not. The vehicle shows that GM can produce a world class vehicle for a reasonable cost.
Powertrain, quiet ride, interior room and comfort, value, backup camera.
