2020 Nissan Pathfinder vs. Its Competition

2020 Nissan Pathfinder SV Rock Creek Edition
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Three-row crossovers are figuratively and literally heavyweight champions for automakers—the competition is a slugfest.

The Honda Pilot is among our faves in the class thanks to its spacious interior and practical uses.

The Subaru Ascent is a good pick too, we like its rugged ability.

The Hyundai Palisade is an upstart, and a good one.

We suggest all three-row shoppers to take a look.

The Ford Explorer is new for 2020 and even bigger—same goes for its price tag.

The Chevy Traverse is a stalwart in the class, even though it’s starting to feel aged.
