For 2020, the Chevy Traverse gets V6 power for every trim. The infotainment system is upgraded to the aptly named Infotainment System 3, as is the optional navigation. An HD rear camera is now standard, while more features are added to various option packages. An HD Surround Vision camera is optional with the LT Leather trim, and it's standard in the RS, Premier and High Country trims. See the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse models for sale near you
For the money, we think the Traverse LT Cloth with AWD is the best choice of the bunch. However, if you want advanced driver-assist features, such as forward emergency braking and adaptive cruise control, you're going to have to move up to the more expensive RS, Premier or High Country trim.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas -- The Atlas isn't quite as roomy inside, but its interior is nicely appointed. The standard V6 is a bit thirsty and can feel sluggish at times, but we think the Atlas gets the nod when it comes to ride and handling.
2020 Subaru Ascent -- The Ascent comes standard with full-time AWD, and its turbocharged 4-cylinder engine gets better fuel economy than the Traverse's V6. Collision avoidance technology comes standard on every Ascent, but the Subaru isn't as roomy inside.
2020 Toyota Highlander -- The Highlander offers good interior room, excellent fuel economy from its hybrid powertrain option and outstanding marks for resale and reliability. The Highlander matches the Traverse for towing, but not rear cargo space.
Used Chevrolet Tahoe -- A 2014 to 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe offers more power for towing and hauling, a robust V8 and better performance off-road. However, it's thirstier at the gas pump, and its third-row seat and cargo volume are not as generous as the Traverse.
