Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2017, a new GT trim replaces the Limited, adding a monochromatic exterior with sporty flourishes, and the base SXT can be ordered with just two rows of seats. Otherwise, there are only minor feature changes, including the new Anodized Platinum package with two-tone leather upholstery for the Citadel trim.

Pros
Unusually spacious third-row seats
8.4-inch touchscreen is one of the best in the class
Assertive acceleration with the V8 engine
Exceptional towing capacity for a crossover
Real off-road capabilities with 4WD and low-range gearing.

Cons
Lackluster fuel economy (especially with the V8)
Bluetooth streaming audio isn't standard on SXT.

The 2017 Dodge Durango tows like an SUV, drives like a crossover--but crash test scores are a dull spot.
Somewhere in the grey zone between body-on-frame SUV and car-like crossover, sits the Dodge Durango. The 5- or 7-seater isn't exactly either: it's a unibody SUV with real towing ability, on the same blurry part of the spectrum as its stablemate, the Jeep Grand Cherokee (and the old Mercedes M- and GL-Class, too).

Pros
Hemi V-8 performance and character
Feels substantial and refined
Confident steering feel
V-6 gets engine stop-start

Cons
Third-row access is difficult
Ride can be busy
Gas mileage is so very low

The 2017 Dodge Durango ranks 8 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Dodge Durango has an abundance of cargo room, and its third row is one of the few in the class with sufficient space for adults. It has a comfortable, agile ride, and one of the highest towing capacities in the class. However, its upper trims can be pricier than those of its rivals.

Pros
Powerful optional V8 engine
Good cargo capacity
Intuitive infotainment system
Comfortable ride

Cons
Expensive upper trims
Poor fuel economy with V8

For 2017, the current-generation Toyota Highlander Hybrid receives its first significant update. Its gasoline engine is more powerful and efficient, and the exterior styling has a fresh look to it. There are also a couple of new, more affordable trim levels this year. Finally, the Toyota Safety Sense suite of accident avoidance features is now standard equipment.

Pros
Impressive fuel economy for a three-row crossover
Just-right size for many families
Added peace of mind from standard accident-avoidance tech
Quiet and compliant ride

Cons
Price premium unlikely to be made up with gas savings
Third-row seat isn't as roomy as those of many competitors
Touchscreen and other controls may require an extra-long reach

The 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid ranks 1 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid becomes even more versatile and affordable for 2017, with the addition of two new trims and an eighth seat. It has an impressive list of family-friendly features available, along with a spacious, well-built cabin. Unsurprisingly, it delivers class-leading fuel efficiency. In a nutshell, this is a safe, reliable SUV that just happens to be a hybrid.

Pros
Energetic, fuel-efficient powertrain
Impressive list of standard safety features
User-friendly, upscale interior

Cons
More expensive than most midsize SUVs

A thorough refresh keeps the 2017 Toyota Highlander ahead in a very tough game. Under the hood, a new V6 engine puts out more power and connects to a new 8-speed automatic transmission. A new suite of standard safety systems includes active cruise control and automatic collision avoidance, combining with Top Safety Pick + crash-test rating from the IIHS for peace of mind. There's also seating for eight passengers, with decent cargo space behind the third row. The interior design includes tons of clever features to make living with the Highlander easier, and the exterior gets a new grille that's, well, really big. Put it together, and Toyota's midsize SUV will continue to be a best-seller for all the right reasons.

Pros
The 2017 Toyota Highlander's emphasis on safety complements its existing strengths of comfort, economy, reliability and resale value. The new engine gets more power and better fuel economy, and the exterior styling is sure to turn heads.

Cons
The Highlander can haul eight passengers, and it can carry a decent amount of stuff, but it lags competitors like the Honda Pilot in both. Additionally, if you need real off-road capability, or towing capacity greater than 5,000 pounds, check out full-size SUVs like the Chevrolet Tahoe or Toyota Sequoia.
