TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is a sharp spin on three-row family crossovers, but misses on a few details. The 2021 Kia Telluride earns our Best Car To Buy nod with its excellent features, warranty, space, and style. The 2021 Lincoln Aviator drops sensational style and space, but the Grand Touring plug-in’s a bit of a misfire.
