Every 3-Row Mid-Size SUV for 2022 Ranked from Worst to Best

See where bestselling mid-size SUVs like the Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander rank on this list of three-row SUVs.

CAR AND DRIVER

Three-row crossovers aren’t the vehicles that will save the planet or encourage spirited mountain driving. They’re the answer for buyers who have a lot of kids and, subsequently, an ever-expanding pile of stuff, but don’t want to live with the power-sliding doors of a minivan. The charming aspect of a three-row SUV is that it can hold up to eight passengers, carry all the hockey or football equipment high schoolers can throw at it, and still offer better fuel economy than full-size SUV counterparts such as the Chevrolet Suburban or Ford Expedition.

After multiple tests and countless hours of driving, we’ve ranked the current available mid-size crossovers and SUVs.

The 2022 Toyota 4Runner is starting to show its age among a handful of new competition. It’s been 12 years since the 4Runner was given a major update. Its rugged body-on-frame chassis and five-speed automatic transmission are old school. The optional third row is on all trims except for TRD Pro. The 270-hp V-6 that’s in every 4Runner is a reliable workhorse but a thirsty one with an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.

  • Base price: $38,000 (est)
  • Powertrain: 270-hp 4.0L V-6 engine; five-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 46 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 9 cubic feet

The GMC Acadia is a compact version of Chevy’s Traverse; both models offer three-row seating. The Acadia comes with either a 288-hp turbocharged four-cylinder or a 310-hp V-6. Both engines use a nine-speed automatic; no CVT here, folks. The Acadia is on the smaller end of the segment, the shortest in length by over an inch—a plus for families that need more room in the garage for the kids’ bikes. Unfortunately, it means the Acadia has the least amount of combined second- and third-row cargo space on the list. The most fuel-efficient Acadia is the front-wheel-drive turbocharged four-cylinder, with an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.

  • Base price: $30,995
  • Powertrain: 288-hp 2.0L turbocharged inline-four, 310-hp 3.6L V-6 engine; nine-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 41 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 12 cubic feet

The Chevrolet Traverse has been refreshed with LED headlights and new front and rear fascias. It’s the biggest SUV on the list at over 17 feet long, giving it more cargo space behind the second row than anything else in the mid-size segment. The only powertrain is a 310-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine with a nine-speed transmission. Despite its size and power, it achieved 27 mpg during our highway fuel-economy test. Features include an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot with standard 4G LTE data. There’s also Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone integration on every Traverse.

  • Base price: $34,895
  • Powertrain: 310-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine; nine-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 57 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 23 cubic feet

MORE TRAVERSE SPECS12. Subaru AscentVIEW PHOTOSSUBARU

If you’ve outgrown the Forester and Outback, meet the Subaru Ascent. Powered by a 260-hp flat-four, the Ascent’s 277 pound-feet of torque gives it a hearty push when needed. The standard CVT helps this 4656-pound all-wheel-drive three-row get an EPA-estimated 27 mpg on the highway. Its long list of standard safety features is where the Ascent shines brightest. Even on the cheapest Ascent, forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control are standard. A 6.5-inch touchscreen comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but step up to the Premium trim level for an 8.0-inch screen, Wi-Fi capability, and other features like blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and the free choice of either a second-row bench or captain’s chairs. Every Ascent has all-wheel drive.

  • Base price: $33,420
  • Powertrain: 260-hp 2.5L turbocharged inline-four engine; continuously variable automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 47 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 17 cubic feet

The Volkswagen Atlas was refreshed for 2021 with a friendlier-looking front end. Two engines are available: a standard 235-hp inline-four with front-wheel drive or a 276-hp V-6. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and are available with all-wheel drive. The V-6-powered Atlas SE with the Technology package, the SEL, and SEL Premium models offer max towing of 5000 pounds. This VW has a rather dull interior design compared to the Kia Telluride or Mazda CX-9. Base models come with a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but we think upgrading to the 8.0-inch touchscreen with two more speakers and extra USB ports is more than worth it. Even the base Atlas is thirsty. The most fuel-efficient version is the front-drive four-cylinder, which returned just 24 mpg on the highway during our fuel-economy test.

  • Base price: $32,565
  • Powertrain: 235-hp 2.0L turbocharged inline-four engine, 276-hp 3.6L V-6 engine; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 55 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 20 cubic feet

The Dodge Durango is the quickest SUV on this list, it tows the most, and is essentially a three-row muscle car. The Durango has three flavors of engine: a 293-hp V-6 with 6200 pounds of max towing all the way up to 475-hp V-8. Every powertrain is supported by an eight-speed automatic. Max towing with the V-8 jumps to 8700 pounds (with the Tow N Go package), meaning it tows more than any mid-size pickup. The Durango offers solid handling with a comfy ride. An 8.4-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comes standard—that’s larger than most optional displays on other SUVs. A 10.1-inch screen is optional. The third row is decently roomy and allows the Durango to seat seven. The V-6 Durango scored 22 mpg on our highway fuel-economy test, and the all-wheel-drive V-8 Durango managed 23 mpg, beating its EPA estimate.

  • Base price: $34,872
  • Powertrain: 293–295-hp 3.6L V-6, 360-hp 5.7L V-8, 475-hp 6.4L V-8 engine; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 43 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 17 cubic feet

MORE DURANGO SPECS9. Honda PilotVIEW PHOTOSHONDA

The 2022 Honda Pilot gets more standard features than last year’s model, but with those updates comes a substantial bump in its starting price by nearly $7000. Every Pilot now has LED headlights and taillights, a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen, and a 280-hp V-6 engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Pilot’s three rows provide plenty of room, and a host of active-safety tech is available. With standard all-wheel drive, a Honda Pilot Elite model returned 27 mpg on our highway fuel-economy test.

  • Base price: $32,645
  • Powertrain: 280-hp 3.5L V-6 engine; nine-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 46 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 16 cubic feet

MORE PILOT SPECS8. Ford ExplorerVIEW PHOTOSJAMES LIPMANCAR AND DRIVER

The Ford Explorer is a smooth-riding three-row with solid powertrain options. A 300-hp 2.3-liter inline-four engine and 10-speed automatic are standard, and if that’s not enough, the 400-hp twin-turbo V-6 in ST models rockets the Explorer to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. A hybrid Explorer is also available. The Explorer’s bigger optional 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen sits vertically, but if Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are all you’re after, that’s standard on models with the smaller 8.0-inch screen, too. The Explorer fell short in our most recent three-row comparo because you can get more features and a nicer interior for a more reasonable price elsewhere. Rear-drive hybrid Explorers return the best fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway. For towing, a base Explorer can pull up to 5300 pounds, while models with the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 tow a bit more at 5600 pounds.

  • Base price: $34,170
  • Powertrain: 300-hp 2.3L turbocharged inline-four, 365-hp 3.0L twin-turbo V-6, 400-hp 3.0L twin-turbo V-6, 318-hp electric-hybrid 3.3L V-6 engine; 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 47 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 18 cubic feet

The new Toyota Highlander packs a bunch of cargo space with the third row folded and a hybrid powertrain with impressive fuel economy. A 295-hp V-6 and eight-speed automatic transmission can be paired with your choice of front- or all-wheel drive. Other standard features include an 8.0-inch touchscreen with SiriusXM satellite radio, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa—even on the base trim. The Highlander Limited and Platinum have a giant 12.3-inch display. A somewhat low roofline can be a bit of a problem for adults in the third row, but there’s plenty of room for kids. The front-drive Highlander Hybrid gets an EPA-estimated 35 mpg highway, while the gas-only version still achieves an impressive 29 mpg.

  • Base price: $36,300
  • Powertrain: 295-hp 3.5L V-6 engine, eight-speed automatic transmission; 243-hp 2.5L inline-four hybrid engine, continuously variable transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 48 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 16 cubic feet

New for 2021, the fifth-generation Nissan Pathfinder is still using some of the older SUV’s parts. The 284-hp 3.5-liter V-6 makes a return, but this time the sluggish CVT has been replaced by Nissan’s nine-speed automatic transmission. Although it rides on the same wheelbase as before, the overall dimensions have grown, and that’s good news for third-row passengers. The wider third row now seats three, upping the total passenger capacity to eight, and increased sound deadening has made the Pathfinder quieter to ride in.

  • Base price: $34,560
  • Powertrain: 284-hp 3.5L V-6 engine; nine-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 45 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 16 cubic feet

MORE PATHFINDER SPECS5. Kia SorentoVIEW PHOTOSKIA

The Kia Sorento has many powertrain options with either front- or all-wheel drive, including a base 191-hp four-cylinder, a 281-hp turbo-four, and a hybrid version. An 8.0-inch touchscreen is standard, though higher trims come with a 10.3-inch screen. The Sorento’s is a rather luxurious cabin with materials that go beyond black plastic. The second-row bench seats can also be changed to captain’s chairs to make crawling into the third row easier. But when it comes to towing, the Sorento’s max capacity is only 3500 pounds. The Sorento is like a diet Kia Telluride, but with a hybrid powertrain, less towing capacity, and a lower starting price.

  • Base price: $30,665
  • Powertrain: 191-hp 2.5L inline-four, 281-hp 2.5L turbocharged inline-four engine, eight-speed automatic transmission; 227-hp 1.6L turbocharged inline-four hybrid engine, six-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 38 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 12 cubic feet

Mazda’s CX-9 gives buyers more than they’re probably expecting from this class, while appealing to our preference for vehicles that are fun to drive. We’ve awarded this Mazda a 10Best Trucks and SUV award in 2018 and 2019 because it drives with a sporty verve while also delivering a luxurious ride. And it looks like a luxury SUV inside and out but is priced in the thick of the mainstream three-row segment. Even the base CX-9 comes with a 10.3-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A gutsy turbocharged four-cylinder engine is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.

  • Base price: $35,060
  • Powertrain: 250-hp turbo 2.5L inline-four engine; six-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 38 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 14 cubic feet

Jeep’s fifth-generation Grand Cherokee debuted in 2021, adding a three-row model dubbed the Grand Cherokee L. It’s 15 inches longer than the previous Grand Cherokee, and a smoother ride is a major benefit from its longer wheelbase. The rumble from the available 5.7-liter V-8 is unlike anything else in the segment (save for the Durango), and the V-6 is no sleepyhead either. Overland and Summit trims come standard with air springs, which can lift the Grand Cherokee L to provide up to 10.3 inches of ground clearance. The new Grand Cherokee has more cargo space than ever, and its third row has a good amount of headroom and footroom for folks with size-12 shoes. The V-8 has the highest towing capacity of the two engines at 7200 pounds.

  • Base price: $40,570
  • Powertrain: 290-hp 3.6L V-6, 357-hp 5.7L V-8; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 46 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 17 cubic feet

The Hyundai Palisade is the Kia Telluride‘s fraternal twin—sharing a platform, powertrain, and suspension—but its looks, inside and out, are where the two are most different. We think the Telluride has an advantage where looks are concerned, but the Palisade is still the next-best choice if your local Kia dealership is out of stock. The fit-and-finish quality are in stark contrast to many of the competitors in this segment. Second-row ventilated seats and a suede-like headliner for under $49,000? You can’t get that combo in a Cadillac Escalade for $103,000.

  • Base price: $33,860
  • Powertrain: 291-hp 3.8L V-6 engine; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 45 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 18 cubic feet

The Kia Telluride arrives as the best of the best with mildly refreshed looks for 2022, and even more standard features that make the Telluride’s lowest trims feel a little fancy. To start, the smallest touchscreen found in a Telluride is now 10.3 inches. More importantly, the new Telluride drives better than it needs to, and its interior styling and quality are distinctive in this segment. The Telluride can tow up to 5000 pounds and comes with a 10-year, 100,000-mile warranty. It’s earned our coveted 10Best award each year since the model’s debut in 2020. We put an all-wheel-drive Telluride SX through the rigors of our 40,000-mile long-term road test, and not only was it one of the most requested vehicles in our fleet, but it was also faultless in terms of reliability.

  • Base price: $34,015
  • Powertrain: 291-hp 3.8L V-6 engine; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 46 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 21 cubic feet

Overview

The Hyundai Palisade stands out among three-row SUVs thanks to its roomy and comfortable interior, user-friendly tech features, and easygoing road manners. Adding to its appeal is a class-leading 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The Hyundai Palisade is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 4 trim levels. The most popular style is the Calligraphy AWD, which starts at $49,985 and comes with a 3.8L V6 engine and All Wheel Drive. This Palisade is estimated to deliver 19 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway.

Pros

  • Strong value for the money
  • Spacious, upscale cabin
  • Tech is easy to use

Cons

  • Lackluster fuel economy
  • Engine lacks low-end grunt

The sophisticated Kia Telluride is the full package, combining style, comfort, and value in a family-friendly SUV. The Kia Telluride is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 4 trim levels.

Pros

  • Eye-catching design
  • Long list of comfort features
  • Ten-year, 100,000-mile warranty

Cons

  • Average fuel economy
  • No onboard Wi-Fi available

Overall Assessment

The Kia Telluride is one of the most popular three-row SUVs. We’re not surprised as it offers an excellent overall package: style, comfort, and exceptional value. The 2022 Kia Telluride gets a few minor upgrades, such as a revised grille up front that incorporates Kia’s new logo and a larger navigation screen inside. The rest of Kia’s largest and most expensive model remains unchanged and for good reason. Its standard 291-horsepower V6 provides excellent all-around performance, and the well-tuned suspension gives it a smooth ride even when loaded up with passengers and cargo. The Telluride also comes with a long list of standard safety features and an interior that looks and feels more expensive than its starting price suggests. If the Telluride’s unique styling doesn’t appeal to you, it’s worth checking out the Hyundai Palisade. Kia and Hyundai are part of the same company, so they share the same engine and suspension. The main difference is the feature content and design with the Palisade leaning toward the more conservative side. Another mainstream option is the Toyota Highlander, which provides a spacious interior, strong safety technology, and an optional hybrid model that delivers excellent fuel economy. Or the Jeep Grand Cherokee L is an all-new, three-row version of the rugged midsize SUV that boasts unrivaled off-road capability and powerful engine options.

Whether you’re looking for basic family transportation or leather-lined luxury, off-road prowess or hot-rod performance, the highly configurable Ford Explorer offers something for almost every midsize-SUV buyer. The Ford Explorer is a 6-seater vehicle that comes in 8 trim levels. The most popular style is the XLT RWD, which starts at $37,440 and comes with a 2.3L I4 Turbo engine and Rear Wheel Drive. This Explorer is estimated to deliver 21 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.

Pros

  • Plenty of trim and equipment levels to choose from
  • Roomy cargo area
  • Top marks for safety

Cons

  • Higher trim levels can get expensive
  • Third row is best for children
  • Disappointing hybrid fuel economy

Overall Assessment

Ford introduced the Explorer 30 years ago, and it’s been a staple of American transportation ever since, thanks to its appealing mix of versatility and value. Now in its sixth generation, the seven-passenger SUV, which slots between the two-row Ford Edge and the full-size Ford Expedition, offers buyers a wide selection of engines and equipment, with prices to match. For excellent overall utility under $40,000, the Explorer’s entry-level trims provide solid performance from a punchy turbocharged four-cylinder engine, available all-wheel drive, and generous standard safety tech.

At the other end of the spectrum, the Explorer’s fanciest trim levels can cost well over $50,000 but offer Bentley-like levels of power and luxury, including a 400-horsepower twin-turbo V6 and quilted-leather massaging seats. There are also hybrid, off-road, and street-performance variants. No matter which version you choose, the Explorer delivers class-leading cargo space, a comfortable and composed ride, and plenty of modern tech, including standard in-vehicle Wi-Fi and Ford Sync 3 infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

While the Explorer’s conventional base engine delivers solid fuel economy, the available hybrid powertrain doesn’t come anywhere close to the class-leading Toyota Highlander Hybrid. On lesser trims, some cheap-looking and feeling interior materials diminish the otherwise refined package. Those seeking the plushest interior appointments for the money should also consider the Hyundai Palisade and its sibling, the Kia Telluride….See More

MORE ATLAS SPECS10. Dodge DurangoVIEW PHOTOSSTELLANTISCAR AND DRIVER

The Dodge Durango is the quickest SUV on this list, it tows the most, and is essentially a three-row muscle car. The Durango has three flavors of engine: a 293-hp V-6 with 6200 pounds of max towing all the way up to 475-hp V-8. Every powertrain is supported by an eight-speed automatic. Max towing with the V-8 jumps to 8700 pounds (with the Tow N Go package), meaning it tows more than any mid-size pickup. The Durango offers solid handling with a comfy ride. An 8.4-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comes standard—that’s larger than most optional displays on other SUVs. A 10.1-inch screen is optional. The third row is decently roomy and allows the Durango to seat seven. The V-6 Durango scored 22 mpg on our highway fuel-economy test, and the all-wheel-drive V-8 Durango managed 23 mpg, beating its EPA estimate.

  • Base price: $34,872
  • Powertrain: 293–295-hp 3.6L V-6, 360-hp 5.7L V-8, 475-hp 6.4L V-8 engine; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 43 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 17 cubic feet

The 2022 Honda Pilot gets more standard features than last year’s model, but with those updates comes a substantial bump in its starting price by nearly $7000. Every Pilot now has LED headlights and taillights, a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen, and a 280-hp V-6 engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Pilot’s three rows provide plenty of room, and a host of active-safety tech is available. With standard all-wheel drive, a Honda Pilot Elite model returned 27 mpg on our highway fuel-economy test.

  • Base price: $32,645
  • Powertrain: 280-hp 3.5L V-6 engine; nine-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 46 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 16 cubic feet

The Ford Explorer is a smooth-riding three-row with solid powertrain options. A 300-hp 2.3-liter inline-four engine and 10-speed automatic are standard, and if that’s not enough, the 400-hp twin-turbo V-6 in ST models rockets the Explorer to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. A hybrid Explorer is also available. The Explorer’s bigger optional 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen sits vertically, but if Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are all you’re after, that’s standard on models with the smaller 8.0-inch screen, too. The Explorer fell short in our most recent three-row comparo because you can get more features and a nicer interior for a more reasonable price elsewhere. Rear-drive hybrid Explorers return the best fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway. For towing, a base Explorer can pull up to 5300 pounds, while models with the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 tow a bit more at 5600 pounds.

  • Base price: $34,170
  • Powertrain: 300-hp 2.3L turbocharged inline-four, 365-hp 3.0L twin-turbo V-6, 400-hp 3.0L twin-turbo V-6, 318-hp electric-hybrid 3.3L V-6 engine; 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 47 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 18 cubic feet

The new Toyota Highlander packs a bunch of cargo space with the third row folded and a hybrid powertrain with impressive fuel economy. A 295-hp V-6 and eight-speed automatic transmission can be paired with your choice of front- or all-wheel drive. Other standard features include an 8.0-inch touchscreen with SiriusXM satellite radio, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa—even on the base trim. The Highlander Limited and Platinum have a giant 12.3-inch display. A somewhat low roofline can be a bit of a problem for adults in the third row, but there’s plenty of room for kids. The front-drive Highlander Hybrid gets an EPA-estimated 35 mpg highway, while the gas-only version still achieves an impressive 29 mpg.

  • Base price: $36,300
  • Powertrain: 295-hp 3.5L V-6 engine, eight-speed automatic transmission; 243-hp 2.5L inline-four hybrid engine, continuously variable transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 48 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 16 cubic feet

New for 2021, the fifth-generation Nissan Pathfinder is still using some of the older SUV’s parts. The 284-hp 3.5-liter V-6 makes a return, but this time the sluggish CVT has been replaced by Nissan’s nine-speed automatic transmission. Although it rides on the same wheelbase as before, the overall dimensions have grown, and that’s good news for third-row passengers. The wider third row now seats three, upping the total passenger capacity to eight, and increased sound deadening has made the Pathfinder quieter to ride in.

  • Base price: $34,560
  • Powertrain: 284-hp 3.5L V-6 engine; nine-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 45 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 16 cubic feet

The Kia Sorento has many powertrain options with either front- or all-wheel drive, including a base 191-hp four-cylinder, a 281-hp turbo-four, and a hybrid version. An 8.0-inch touchscreen is standard, though higher trims come with a 10.3-inch screen. The Sorento’s is a rather luxurious cabin with materials that go beyond black plastic. The second-row bench seats can also be changed to captain’s chairs to make crawling into the third row easier. But when it comes to towing, the Sorento’s max capacity is only 3500 pounds. The Sorento is like a diet Kia Telluride, but with a hybrid powertrain, less towing capacity, and a lower starting price.

  • Base price: $30,665
  • Powertrain: 191-hp 2.5L inline-four, 281-hp 2.5L turbocharged inline-four engine, eight-speed automatic transmission; 227-hp 1.6L turbocharged inline-four hybrid engine, six-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 38 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 12 cubic feet

Mazda’s CX-9 gives buyers more than they’re probably expecting from this class, while appealing to our preference for vehicles that are fun to drive. We’ve awarded this Mazda a 10Best Trucks and SUV award in 2018 and 2019 because it drives with a sporty verve while also delivering a luxurious ride. And it looks like a luxury SUV inside and out but is priced in the thick of the mainstream three-row segment. Even the base CX-9 comes with a 10.3-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A gutsy turbocharged four-cylinder engine is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.

  • Base price: $35,060
  • Powertrain: 250-hp turbo 2.5L inline-four engine; six-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 38 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 14 cubic feet

MORE CX-9 SPECS3. Jeep Grand Cherokee LVIEW PHOTOSJEEP

Jeep’s fifth-generation Grand Cherokee debuted in 2021, adding a three-row model dubbed the Grand Cherokee L. It’s 15 inches longer than the previous Grand Cherokee, and a smoother ride is a major benefit from its longer wheelbase. The rumble from the available 5.7-liter V-8 is unlike anything else in the segment (save for the Durango), and the V-6 is no sleepyhead either. Overland and Summit trims come standard with air springs, which can lift the Grand Cherokee L to provide up to 10.3 inches of ground clearance. The new Grand Cherokee has more cargo space than ever, and its third row has a good amount of headroom and footroom for folks with size-12 shoes. The V-8 has the highest towing capacity of the two engines at 7200 pounds.

  • Base price: $40,570
  • Powertrain: 290-hp 3.6L V-6, 357-hp 5.7L V-8; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 46 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 17 cubic feet

MORE GRAND CHEROKEE L SPECS2. Hyundai PalisadeVIEW PHOTOSHYUNDAI

The Hyundai Palisade is the Kia Telluride‘s fraternal twin—sharing a platform, powertrain, and suspension—but its looks, inside and out, are where the two are most different. We think the Telluride has an advantage where looks are concerned, but the Palisade is still the next-best choice if your local Kia dealership is out of stock. The fit-and-finish quality are in stark contrast to many of the competitors in this segment. Second-row ventilated seats and a suede-like headliner for under $49,000? You can’t get that combo in a Cadillac Escalade for $103,000.

  • Base price: $33,860
  • Powertrain: 291-hp 3.8L V-6 engine; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 45 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 18 cubic feet

The Kia Telluride arrives as the best of the best with mildly refreshed looks for 2022, and even more standard features that make the Telluride’s lowest trims feel a little fancy. To start, the smallest touchscreen found in a Telluride is now 10.3 inches. More importantly, the new Telluride drives better than it needs to, and its interior styling and quality are distinctive in this segment. The Telluride can tow up to 5000 pounds and comes with a 10-year, 100,000-mile warranty. It’s earned our coveted 10Best award each year since the model’s debut in 2020. We put an all-wheel-drive Telluride SX through the rigors of our 40,000-mile long-term road test, and not only was it one of the most requested vehicles in our fleet, but it was also faultless in terms of reliability.

  • Base price: $34,015
  • Powertrain: 291-hp 3.8L V-6 engine; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Cargo space behind second row: 46 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 21 cubic feet

Overall Assessment

Genesis, the luxury division of the Hyundai Motor Group, has quickly earned a place alongside some of the best-known premium brands. That’s thanks to a string of remarkable new models, including the GV80. Launched just last year, the midsize luxury SUV easily holds its own against longtime segment leaders, such as the Mercedes-Benz GLE and BMW X5. Like them, the GV80 is available with either rear- or all-wheel drive and either turbocharged four- or six-cylinder power. But where some rivals offer a variety of flavors, including fuel-efficient hybrids and sporty performance variants, the GV80 sticks to a simple formula. It’s focused squarely on comfort and refinement, which it delivers in spades. Not only does the GV80 provide a smooth and quiet ride, its roomy cabin impresses with high-quality materials and loads of standard features and tech. One thing it doesn’t do well is a third row, which is offered only on the most expensive trim levels and is cramped to boot. We suggest looking elsewhere for a three-row people hauler. But anyone in the market for a two-row luxury SUV should give the GV80 serious consideration….See More

Overview

The Lincoln Aviator offers upscale design and loads of features in a family-friendly package. With a standard 400-horsepower engine and competitive pricing, it’s a compelling choice among luxury three-row SUVs. The Lincoln Aviator is a 6-seater vehicle that comes in 5 trim levels. The most popular style is the Reserve AWD, which starts at $61,400 and comes with a 3.0L V6 Twin-Turbo engine and All Wheel Drive. This Aviator is estimated to deliver 17 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway.Configure a new car

Pros

  • Premium look and feel
  • Powerful turbocharged V6
  • Available plug-in hybrid

Cons

  • Third row is best for children
  • Soft handling compared to some competitors

Overall Assessment

The Aviator is a relatively new offering from Lincoln, first appearing two years ago. Based on the midsize Ford Explorer, it’s Lincoln’s second-largest vehicle, measuring some 22 inches shorter than the full-size Lincoln Navigator and about 9 inches longer than the two-row Lincoln Nautilus. Like its siblings, the Aviator distinguishes itself with luxurious good looks and plush accommodations. It carries up to seven passengers across three rows of seats, delivering a comfortable and quiet ride, not to mention strong acceleration from its potent base engine – a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6.

Higher trims also offer a plug-in hybrid powertrain capable of an estimated 21 miles of electric-only range. In keeping with the Lincoln brand, the Aviator favors luxury over sportiness, so it isn’t as athletic as some rivals, such as the Audi Q7 or the BMW X7. Instead, more like the pricier Mercedes-Benz GLE, it pampers occupants with premium materials as well as abundant features and tech….See More

Overview

With its spacious interior, strong performance, and comfortable ride, the new 2022 MDX elevates Acura’s level of refinement. Shoppers looking for a versatile luxury crossover SUV with the latest technology should definitely consider the MDX. The Acura MDX is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 6 trim levels. The most popular style is the A-Spec Package SH-AWD, which starts at $59,445 and comes with a 3.5L V6 engine and All Wheel Drive. This MDX is estimated to deliver 19 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway.

Pros

  • Roomy, versatile cabin
  • Time-tested V6 with new 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Excellent ride comfort

Cons

  • Slick but challenging infotainment interface
  • Third-row seating has minimal legroom

Overall Assessment

The three-row Acura MDX is all-new for 2022 after skipping the 2021 model year altogether. As Acura’s largest SUV, it sits above the smaller two-row Acura RDX. The MDX isn’t as big as traditional three-row luxury SUVs, such as the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. But the newly enlarged MDX is more than an inch longer than its most direct competitor, the Lexus RX 350L.

All MDXs are powered by a strong 3.5-liter V6, which is now connected to a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard. Acura also offers its Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), which improves performance on both dry pavement and wet surfaces. Acura has significantly refined its interior designs and materials over the past decade, and it shows in the MDX’s rich-looking cabin. One downside is the trackpad-like infotainment system interface takes practice to use proficiently.

The MDX has long been one of the top-selling three-row luxury SUVs, and the changes to the 2022 model make it even better. It is one of the few vehicles in its class to deliver versatility, luxury, and a performance feel in a single package….See More

Overview

The Highlander is Toyota’s midsize crossover SUV. With a smooth and economical V6 engine and available hybrid, the Highlander is a well-rounded and practical family vehicle. Its cabin greets passengers with easy to use technology and high-quality materials. Outward visibility is superb, and the Highlander has the serene ride of a sedan. Some rivals have more cargo space, and the third-row is snug. Overall, the Highlander is hard to fault. The Toyota Highlander is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 11 trim levels. The most popular style is the XLE AWD, which starts at $43,420 and comes with a 3.5L V6 engine and All Wheel Drive. This Highlander is estimated to deliver 20 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway.Configure a new car

Pros

  • A hard-to-beat mix of practicality and comfort
  • Refined gas and hybrid powertrains
  • Many standard driver safety assists

Cons

  • Some rivals are faster and more agile
  • Snug third row is too tight for adults
  • Pricier than some competitors

Overall Assessment

The Toyota Highlander remains a popular choice with families, thanks to its many standard conveniences, quiet ride, extensive safety tech, and excellent fuel economy. Drivers looking for a crossover with the comfort and handling characteristics of a sedan will want to put the Highlander at the top of their test-drive list. Those looking for a sporty or fun-to-drive SUV may want to look elsewhere, though the XSE may be just what some buyers are seeking….See More

Overview

The all-new Jeep Wagoneer takes a classic nameplate and applies it to a three-row SUV with seating for eight and a luxurious and spacious interior. When equipped with four-wheel drive, the Wagoneer has more off-road capability than most competitors, but it also commands a considerably higher price tag. The Jeep Wagoneer is a 8-seater vehicle that comes in 3 trim levels. The most popular style is the Series III 4WD, which starts at $78,995 and comes with a 5.7L V8 engine and Four Wheel Drive. This Wagoneer is estimated to deliver 15 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway.Configure a new car

Pros

  • Exceptional off-road capability
  • Seating for eight
  • Smooth ride

Cons

  • More expensive than class competitors
  • Low fuel economy

Overall Assessment

The 2022 Jeep Wagoneer marks the return of this iconic SUV to the marketplace and fills an empty spot in the Jeep lineup. It finally gives Jeep fans a three-row option with seating for up to eight passengers in a spacious and comfortable interior. There’s also a hefty dose of luxury that includes standard Nappa leather seats and a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen. Even the base trim of the Wagoneer delivers a luxury experience. Its standard V8 engine provides ample grunt to get this large SUV up to speed, making the Wagoneer an excellent tow vehicle option. And, since this is a Jeep, it has genuine off-road chops, offering three four-wheel-drive systems with varying degrees of capability.

The Ford Expedition has a wider range of trims and a more affordable starting price than the Wagoneer, but its interior is not as deluxe. The Chevrolet Tahoe also presents more trims with lower pricing, but again it can’t match the Wagoneer’s luxurious cabin. The Infiniti QX80 provides three elegant trims with comparable power and higher pricing, but it lacks the same level of off-road ability….See More

Overview

The massive Ford Expedition serves the customer seeking interior space, fitting eight people with endless cargo room to spare. The Expedition’s truck-based platform makes it a capable workhorse, though its extra-large footprint requires some concentration while maneuvering. The Ford Expedition is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 6 trim levels. The most popular style is the Limited 4WD, which starts at $69,040 and comes with a 3.5L V6 Turbo engine and Four Wheel Drive. This Expedition is estimated to deliver 17 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway.Configure a new car

Pros

  • Well-crafted interior with modern tech. Endless cargo space and unrivaled passenger space. Surprising fuel economy with V6.

Cons

  • Footprint makes tight spaces worrisome. Not as affordable as a minivan.

Overall Assessment

Immense and capable, the Ford Expedition is one of the best full-size SUVs on the market. It does everything one would expect from a large SUV, with more space than a minivan and similar towing to a truck. The cabin is comfortable, with many standard features. Passengers have 15 beverage holders and other storage points, and the cargo capacity is superb. An extended-length Max version adds even more cargo possibilities. Overall, the Ford Expedition is excellent for large families with its peerless interior dimensions and practical feature set….See More

It’s also capable of towing large loads and tackling rough terrain, which makes it an intriguing alternative to its less-capable competitors in the full-size luxury SUV segment. The Jeep Grand Wagoneer is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 4 trim levels.

Pros

  • Roomy and comfortable
  • Hemi V8 power and up to 10,000-pound tow rating
  • Advanced infotainment and driver-assistive safety systems

Cons

  • Pricey for a Jeep
  • Dismal fuel economy

Overall Assessment

After flirting with offering a large seven-to-eight-passenger SUV to compete with the likes of the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator for decades, Jeep finally has its luxury flagship. The all-new Jeep Grand Wagoneer, along with the slightly less-expensive Jeep Wagoneer, are built on an all-new architecture that borrows some key powertrain and chassis components from the Ram 1500 pickup. The Grand Wagoneer includes the proven four-wheel-drive systems and go-anywhere capability all Jeeps offer but on a larger scale.

Measuring a few inches longer than the standard Escalade and Navigator but between 7 and 12 inches shorter than the long-wheelbase Navigator and Escalade ESV, the new Grand Wagoneer fits in more garages than the longer SUVs. It offers generous passenger and cargo space within its squarish, roomy shell.

The new Grand Wagoneer debuts with upgraded features, such as an adjustable air suspension, night vision, a front-passenger infotainment display, Amazon Fire TV, and soon, Jeep’s Hands-Free Active Driving Assist….See MoreStarting MSRP $89,995Starting Market Avg. $90,706Build & PriceView New Inventory

Overview

The Lincoln Navigator is a plush and well-furnished full-size luxury SUV with the passenger room, cargo capacity, and power to tackle any task. It is expensive, but the build quality and materials used in the interior, combined with the class-leading capabilities, safety technology, and style, make it a top choice when it comes to full-size luxury SUVs. The Lincoln Navigator is a 8-seater vehicle that comes in 3 trim levels. The most popular style is the Reserve 4WD, which starts at $86,860 and comes with a 3.5L V6 Twin-Turbo engine and Four Wheel Drive. This Navigator is estimated to deliver 16 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway.Configure a new car

Pros

  • Beautifully crafted interior
  • Powerful twin-turbocharged engine
  • Class-leading tow capacity

Cons

  • Top models touch $100,000
  • Low fuel economy
  • Lagging infotainment tech features

Overall Assessment

The Lincoln Navigator is one of the most luxurious full-size SUVs available. And it comes loaded with the features and tech that buyers in this segment expect. The sumptuous interior feels right in step with this class of vehicle, too. The four-wheel independent suspension and noise-absorbing countermeasures engineered by Lincoln deliver a cocoon of comfort and quietness.

The gargantuan people-hauler is based on the Ford Expedition, which itself shares much of its mechanical makeup with the Ford F-150 pickup. So unlike crossover SUVs that are built with a car-like body and chassis, the Navigator is built like a truck with a separate body riding on a full ladder frame. With heavy construction like that, it’s not surprising that all of the Navigator’s luxuries are backed by serious capability.

The Navigator is available in two lengths, the standard model and the L, which offers a 9-inch longer wheelbase and enough cargo space to overpack for any adventure. Every Navigator has the same potent powertrain: a 450-horsepower twin-turbo V6 paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Navigator’s all-wheel-drive system is optional and top models receive a low range-equipped four-wheel-drive system packaged with the heavy-duty trailer tow package. Speaking of towing, a properly equipped two-wheel-drive Navigator can move up to 8,700 pounds of trailer, which is more than any other full-size luxury SUV….See More

Overview

The three-row Cadillac XT6 luxury SUV seats seven passengers, but its attractive cabin isn’t as upscale as its price implies. Two engine options include a responsive V6 and available all-wheel drive, but the XT6 doesn’t have the sporty feel that some rivals offer. The Cadillac XT6 is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 3 trim levels. The most popular style is the Premium Luxury AWD, which starts at $56,190 and comes with a 3.6L V6 engine and All Wheel Drive. This XT6 is estimated to deliver 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway.Configure a new car

Pros

  • Smooth ride
  • Roomy seating
  • Ample cargo room

Cons

  • Can’t match the performance feel of competitors
  • Cabin doesn’t feel expensive

Overall Assessment

The Cadillac XT6 was introduced as an all-new model last year. It’s a seven-passenger alternative to the larger, more expensive Cadillac Escalade. Though smaller, the XT6 has plenty of room and its third row easily accommodates two adults. Interior materials are good, but the XT6 doesn’t deliver the same superior quality of some competitors. The V6 engine is responsive, easily getting this large vehicle up to speed with a smooth, quiet ride. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available. Packaged as a luxury SUV, the XT6 comes with many standard features, including a premium audio system and heated front seats. It’s also strong on safety with standard automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist.

The XT6’s competitors include the Lincoln Aviator and Acura MDX. The Aviator delivers a luxury experience at an even higher price. The MDX has similar accommodations with a more performance-oriented feel….See More

Overview

The reborn Land Rover Defender lives up to the legend but in a thoroughly modern way, offering extreme off-road capability and unique style. The Land Rover Defender is a 5-seater vehicle that comes in 10 trim levels. The most popular style is the 110 X-Dynamic HSE, which starts at $75,350 and comes with a 3.0L I6 S/C and Turbo engine and Four Wheel Drive. This Defender is estimated to deliver 17 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway.Configure a new car

Pros

  • Serious go-anywhere capability
  • Styling brings an iconic look into the present day
  • Hefty towing capacity

Cons

  • With either engine, the Defender is thirsty
  • On-road handling is far from sporty

Overall Assessment

The original Defender put Land Rover on the map, and remained in production (with updates) from the 1940s into the 2000s. However, the Defender was sold in the United States only some of that time. A wholly new version of the iconic model is a very big deal, but Land Rover has successfully brought the Defender into the present day while honoring its past.
