The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
7.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Acura MDX assumes the flagship spot in the Acura lineup with sleek looks and plenty of technology. The 2021 GMC Acadia shines most brightly in turbo-4 spec, but rival three-row crossovers put out more lumens. The 2021 Hyundai Palisade builds a bridge to luxury with three rows of seats, big touchscreens, and quilted leather.
