The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Ford Explorer rediscovers its capable, outdoorsy side without becoming trucklike in any other respect. The 2020 GMC Acadia’s expanded lineup and new styling look worth the wait. Subtle upgrades make the 2019 Honda Pilot a must-see for three-row crossover shoppers.
