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. Subtle upgrades make the 2019 Honda Pilot a must-see for three-row crossover shoppers. The 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid’s impressive fuel economy may win us over.
