The Ascent brings a lot of value to the table, especially when it comes to standard safety tech not matched by some rivals.

The latest Ford Explorer comes in a myriad of configurations and drives well, though it may be too big for some buyers.
We could say the same about the new Toyota Highlander, which promises impressive fuel economy in hybrid guise.
Chevy’s Traverse is short on standard safety gear that makes it hard to recommend even though it is a terrific design.
Look for big discounts on the Nissan Pathfinder, one of the oldest crossover SUV designs on the market.
