I went and looked at one tonight, they had the $51k High Country version on display, I thought the seats looked small, and didn't feel like a seat I'd want to sit in for more than 30 minutes. I am 5'10" and weigh 170. I did like the saddle brown color of the seats in the high country model and would pay extra for them in a FORD. I think the traverse is priced high, though I am fairly certain everyone that buys a GM does it because they get a discount so MSRP's are probably rarely paid.
One other thing they did get right is the third row could accommodate three teenagers and it would appear with the second row seats removed and the third row seats folded down you could get a 4x8 sheet of drywall in there. I realize I'd never do this however the 4x8 drywall sheet laying flat is a benchmark I won't compromise on. Which is why I have kept my Odyssey around long past necessity, quite honestly it can almost hold as much as the 6' bed of F150. I am looking to replace both the Truck and Van with one vehicle which will likely be the next generation Explorer or the Expedition depending on the capability if the next generation Explorer.
