The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
6.5
7.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Ford Explorer rediscovers its capable, outdoorsy side without becoming trucklike in any other respect. The 2020 Honda Pilot is a three-row family crossover at the top of its class. There’s substance to the 2020 Kia Telluride’s style.
