Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse is a big family mover with a sharper look and better safety features.

PROS
Sharp looks
Standard active safety features
Comfortable ride
Spacious interior
Wireless smartphone software

CONS
Outdated AWD system
Middling fuel economy
Just one engine available

By:

Chevrolet has given its three-row Traverse a light refresh for the 2021 model year that includes revised exterior styling and a host of new standard driver-assistance features. Among them are automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlamps. An 8.0-inch display inside the gauge cluster is now an available tech option, and new upholstery designs dress up the interior.

PROS
Spacious cabin,
peppy acceleration,
fuel efficient powertrain.

CONS
Big blind spots toward the rear,
plasticky interior parts,
most appealing options cost extra.

By:

The 2021 Traverse has no significant changes. Part of the second Traverse generation introduced for 2018.

PROS
Passenger room is generous in all three rows
Loads of space for any combination of passengers and cargo
Feature-rich infotainment system comes with standard Wi-Fi hotspot

CONS
Some safety features are only available on top trims
Quality of some interior panels and controls seems low-rent for this class

No significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Generous cargo and passenger room
Quiet and smooth ride
Plenty of standard features
Lots of device charging solutions

Cons
Many advanced safety features only available on top trim levels
Pricier than non-luxury rivals, but cabin materials aren't much nicer
Thirstier than V6-powered competitors

The 2021 Buick Enclave is the smoother, smothering three-row crossover in GM’s stable.

Pros
Great look
Comfortable ride
Good touchscreen
Handsome interior

Cons
Automatic braking not available on all models
Limited body colors on base version
Spendy Avenir
Not very fuel-efficient

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Buick's three-row family SUV rolls over to 2021 with only a few tweaks. Premium and Avenir models now come standard with power-adjustable lumbar support for the front seats and a massage feature, while the air ionizer is no longer available. Those two top models also receive a formerly optional package of driver-assistance features—including automated emergency braking and lane-keeping assist—as standard.

Pros
Upscale exterior styling,
plenty of tech features are standard,
large cargo bay.

Cons
Down-market interior materials,
no standard driver-assists on lower trims,
V-6 engine isn't particularly efficient.
