I was previously a Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner. I owned a 2004 and 2006. I decided that as our family was expanding that I needed a larger, roomier car but I wasn't quite ready to go the minivan route. Initially my husband I started looking at the Acadia. I liked that they offered 7 or 8 passenger seating and had all the bells and whistles, BUT I didn't love the sticker price for the model that I wanted. I looked around a bit more and discovered the Traverse. As it's a GM offshoot it came with the same great features as the Acadia with a different look and better pricing.
I drove the Traverse and immediately was in love. We ended up buying a 2010 LT2 and love absolutely everything about it. The handling is smooth and the appointments are great. I'm not bothered by the gas mileage as I think it's all about expectations. You're never going to get Honda Civic gas mileage out of a vehicle this large. The only thing that I don't love about the Traverse is that sometimes the pick up can be a bit slow. It might be a good idea for them to offer a V8 model. Other than that, I love it and would definitely recommend it. We've gotten a ton of compliments on the luxurious interior and smooth ride.
I love my car

This car is great, we got an AWD. It handles the mountain with ease, and we take it to the beach on other days. Great family vehicle.

For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
