With no shortage of three-row crossover SUVs on the market, you’ve got your work cut out for you.

The Kia Telluride is a perennial favorite for its upscale look and comfy cabin, though its V-6 is thirsty.

Nissan’s Pathfinder isn’t much greener, but it has bold styling and a huge interior.

Look to the Ford Explorer for its sublime ride and a somewhat frugal hybrid version, but it can get expensive with a quickness.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee can feel a cut above when fully outfitted, and its off-road ability is unmatched in this segment.

Finally, the Toyota Highlander delivers almost incomprehensible fuel economy that helps offset a high initial price tag.
