    Not bad.

    The new Traverse is similar in dimension to the model it replaces, but an extra 2.0 inches of wheelbase and 0.7 inch more overall length creates room behind each row of seats. The second row can slide with a child seat intact to ease entry into the back row, where there is more room than in the larger Tahoe. And the Traverse can swallow the obligatory 4-by-8-foot piece of plywood after opening the hatch with a swish of a leg. A Bow Tie–shaped pool of light on the ground shows where the sensor is, so you don’t look like you are doing a bad chicken dance with an arm full of groceries.
    I thought it was getting smaller.

    Well it was known it wouldn't get as downsized as the Acadia per GM, but I think all are pleased its pretty close to the original's dimensions, even a hair larger as it was moving to a new platform.

    Personally I like how it looks more Tahoe-ish and less like a raised minivan.

    Wait a sec... I've read two different things. Is the Acadia, Traverse, and Enclave going to be on the same platform or no?

    They're all the same platform now (as well as Caddy XT5) but 2 different versions/sizings. The Acadia and XT5 share one wheelbase, and likely Traverse/Enclave the longer version. What was the "Lambda" platform shared by the original 3 (and old Saturn Outlook) is now a scalable C1XX platform based off the old Epsilon.
