After almost a decade, the three-row Traverse is getting a redesign for 2018. It's based on the same platform as the new GMC Acadia but is longer. The current Traverse is showing its age: It has outdated controls and thirst for fuel, with 16 mpg overall. The Acadia we tested impressed, with a quiet interior; steady, composed ride; and responsive handling. The 3.6-liter V6 supplies ample power. The infotainment system is comprehensive and intuitive. Like the Acadia, the new Traverse will have a rear-seat minder to ensure that no infants are left behind. Maximum seating capacity is eight, but most versions will be seven-passenger configurations with second-row captain chairs. The new Traverse goes on sale in the summer.
