TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Acura MDX wears its new flagship mantle with confidence, from its styling to its eager road manners. 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.
