The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you are looking for a truck-based SUV that can tow, the Ford Explorer is ahead of most of its rivals. The 2009 Kia Borrego isn’t the type of vehicle that’s especially popular or fashionable at this time, but it’s a home run against the competition.
