TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Dodge Durango is a great family hauler, and a top-notch utility infielder when you need extra brawn—made better this year with some important upgrades. The 2014 Ford Explorer does build on its heritage, but on-road fluency and passenger comfort are clearly at center stage. Despite the 2014 Honda Pilot's truck-like exterior, it's one of more practical and family-friendly models on of the market today.
