The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you're torn between an SUV and a pickup and cutting-edge styling isn't important, the 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac might be the answer. The 2010 Jeep Commander is at home on the trail, although its interior and on-the-road comfort leave a lot to be desired.
