The most popular style is the Long Range Dual Motor AWD, which starts at $51,190 and comes with an Electric engine and All Wheel Drive. There are two available V8 engines for the Tahoe, and both are great motors that are capable of moving the full-size SUV with gusto. Finally, there is a completely new chassis, which provides better dynamics and overall driving experience. The Dodge is smaller than many of the other SUVs in this roundup, and its entry-level powertrain is an overburdened 173-hp four-cylinder with a four-speed automatic transmission. Overall, it’s the highest ranking three-row luxury SUV. Even with eight people on board, the Traverse still manages to be spacious and comfortable.

It has an EPA electric range of 315 miles, which is competitive with gas-powered rivals. The Mazda CX-9 is a three-row midsize crossover aimed at those who need the most seating and cargo capacity that Mazda has to offer.

Unfortunately, it is lower down on J.D. 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. While engine lineup remains the same, there’s a new 8-speed automatic transmission in the offer. The interior quality make us wonder why this isn't badged as a Genesis, the Kia/Hyundai luxury brand. Kia does a great job of piling on the standard features, and also offers affordable packages of technology add-ons like wireless device charging, heated and ventilated front seats, power liftgate, radar cruise control, all-wheel drive and more. A close sibling of the Kia Telluride, the Palisade is Hyundai’s flagship SUV and comes packed with features and driver safety technology.

A 284-hp V-6 engine with a continuously variable automatic transmission is the only powertrain choice; front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is optional. We should see some tweaks on the dashboard, as well as a longer list of standard features, including some of latest technologies. After multiple tests and countless hours of driving we’ve ranked the current available options of mid-size crossovers and SUVs.

All of these have better predicted reliability ratings than the Outlander. Just like its close relative Chevy Traverse, this model also came completely new last year.

Reliability Score: 2.0/5 | USN Overall Score: 6.6/10 | $23,895. These include retuned steering and an updated suspension for refined handling and ride comfort. For now, buyers can rest assured Sorento’s predicted reliability is better than Nissan Pathfinder, Ford Explorer, and Dodge Journey (among other three-row competitors).

The majority of trims are powered by a 310-horsepower V6 that’s paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. It looks a bit challenging to make such vehicles that will keep the strength and space of full-size SUVs but save some weight and dimensions.

The SUV’s corrosion perforation warranty runs for seven years/100,000 miles.

Those seats can be folded to make room for extra cargo, while the second-row seats can be temporarily slid out of the way for easy access to the third-row seat through the rear doors.
We also included our own U.S. News & World Report overall score so there are no ties.

A V6 engine provides good power and fuel economy. You won’t see Fiat or Jeep racking up reliability awards year after year. The anemic 2.4-liter four-cylinder base engine is troublesome, as well.
Joining the Crosstrek, Forester, and Outback in the brand’s crossover lineup, Ascent shares Subaru’s signature Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive as a standard feature. With rear-wheel drive, the Sequoia can only muster 15 mpg combined. Mazda has built a reputation for designing vehicles that deliver a superior driving experience, and the 2019 Mazda CX-9 continues the tradition. It's one of the heavier SUVs on this list, but even so, is offered with a 400-hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 in the ST performance trim that gets it moving.

Expect to see several visual modifications as well, which will emphasize vehicles tough off-road character.

For drivers that mostly stick to tarmac, the 4Runner requires a large amount of trade-offs.

Vehicles with higher scores are expected to be more reliable than vehicles with a lower score. The SUV’s standard Uconnect infotainment system is impressive, featuring a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and two USB ports as standard. The Mazda CX-9 is a 7-seater vehicle that comes in 4 trim levels. The SQ7’s showpiece is a 500-horsepower V8 engine that allows the 2.6-ton SUV to accelerate faster than many sports cars. The most popular style is the Prestige, which starts at $85,795 and comes with a 4.0L V8 Turbo engine and All Wheel Drive. Cadillac has placed its focus on technology, with many driver safety aids as standard equipment. The Armada ranks toward the bottom of our rankings for large SUVs.

The Flex’s old age also rears its head again when it comes to standard safety features. It has been crossover SUV since the 2013 model year.
