2010 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ

As far as large, seven-passenger crossovers go, I still think the Chevy Traverse is very competitive with vehicles like the Honda Pilot, the Toyota Highlander, and the Ford Flex. I am always impressed when I get in one because of its surprisingly plush interior, and this powertrain is great. If you don't really need three rows of seats, however, by all means, consider the Traverse's little brother, the Equinox.

I beg to differ. I get 22-23 always in my Traverse. I have a friend with a Tahoe and just like my Silverado, gets 16-17. If you need to tow heavy, go with the Tahoe, but if you are moving people, the Traverse has more room, it's quieter and gets better mileage.
19MPG average, I doubt that. If you want to carry 7-8 passengers get a Minivan which will result in better gas mileage. If you need to tow something get a Tahoe or Yukon & probably end up with similar gas mileage as the Traverse.
