U.S. News & World Report Names Chevy Traverse Best 3-Row SUV for Families
With the exciting new Blazer and upcoming 2020 Silverado HD, the Chevy Traverse hasn’t gotten as much recognition as it deserves. The model’s latest head-nod from U.S. News & World Report, however, helps soften the blow. The 2019 Traverse just nabbed the Best 3-Row SUV title from the publication’s Best Cars for Families awards.
About the award
To choose the winners, the publication rated 129 new cars, SUVs, and minivans for the 2019 model year. Judges evaluated each vehicle based on safety and reliability ratings, interior space, availability of family-friendly features, and professional automotive reviews. Considering the range of contenders for these awards, it’s quite a feat that the Chevy Traverse stole the show for the 3-row SUV category.
Jamie Page Deaton, executive editor of U.S. News Best Cars, explained the significance of the awards for families shopping for their next vehicle. “The Best Cars for Families awards highlight cars, vans, and SUVs that will work for all stages of family life,” Deaton said. “The winners have what it takes to entertain toddlers and help teen drivers develop good driving habits.”
