The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Toyota Highlander gets a stronger, more responsive powertrain for 2017, but the main strengths are the ride quality, the cabin refinement, and the space for eight. The 2017 Dodge Durango tows like an SUV, drives like a crossover—but crash test scores are a dull spot.
