The Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport cover broad swaths of crossover shoppers by offering two- and three-row mid-size versions.
Nearly every automaker has a two- and three-door large crossover, and the Atlas and Cross Sport aim squarely at rivals like the Honda Pilot.
It remains a popular three-row that’s competent and spacious, but it’s now dated.
The Grand Cherokee is a two- or three-row crossover SUV with real off-road talent and a coming plug-in hybrid edition, as well as V-8 power for frequent towers.
The Subaru Ascent blends a frisky turbo-4 with all-wheel drive in every model, but its interior isn’t as big.
Of all the three-row Atlas competitors, we like the Palisade and Telluride the best, for their superb style, scads of equipment, and strong safety performance.
