The Nissan Murano is in a crowded field of family crossovers—some of which occasionally have third rows.
The Toyota Highlander is one of those crossovers, it’s not thrilling to drive, but does offer a hybrid powertrain for better fuel economy.
The Ford Edge is aged—especially its interior—but its sport model is mildly entertaining to drive.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is our perennial pick in the class, not only because of its off-road prowess, but in its wide swath of options and powertrains that range from a mild V-6 to a supercharged V-8.
The Chevrolet Traverse is new and sports a bigger interior with family-friendly ideas.
The Volkswagen Atlas is nearly new and has a third row, but lacks any personality; its biggest draw right now may be its long-lasting warranty.
