TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Dodge Durango hits a sweet spot between crossovers and SUVs—if you're willing to overlook the thirst, that is. The 2016 Ford Explorer doesn't need to rely on hardcore off-road tools--not with its firm road manners, plush interiors, and choice of turbocharged power. The 2016 Honda Pilot has axed its hard edges: it's once again a smooth, capable family wagon, one that raises the bar for refinement.
