TCC’s Bottom Line

The muscle-SUV 2019 Dodge Durango offers engaging handling and powerful engines, but it's falling behind in terms of safety. The 2019 Ford Explorer has many virtues, but its replacement can’t come soon enough. Subtle upgrades make the 2019 Honda Pilot a must-see for three-row crossover shoppers.
