The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
5.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Ford Explorer rediscovers its capable, outdoorsy side without becoming trucklike in any other respect. The 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid’s impressive fuel economy may win us over. Space comes before pace with the roomy 2020 Volkswagen Atlas.
