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 2020 Ford Explorer rediscovers its capable, outdoorsy side without becoming trucklike in any other respect. The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee impresses with style and performance, but lags behind in safety and fuel economy.
