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.

CONS
Some safety features are only available on top trims
