Watch your back, Honda Pilot — the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse has addressed previous shortcomings and covets the car-based SUV crown. reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder says the new Traverse makes great strides with its interior, particularly in the LTZ trim. A redesigned center control panel, classier looking controls and wood-look trim, soft-touch surfaces with contrast stitching and effective faux aluminum make us forget 2012’s already-forgettable black-plastic backdrop. Where the Traverse loses us is its optional touch-screen navigation system that has an undersized screen and imprecise capacitive touch buttons; the ride also feels firmer than before. So is the Pilot getting grounded? Read Wiesenfelder’s Traverse review below and decide.
