The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder comes with front wheel drive, and four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: continuously variable-speed automatic.New Rock Creek Edition offers unique visual flair.

Pros
V6 engine delivers strong acceleration with decent fuel economy
Third-row seating is easy to access
Robust towing capacity
Automatic emergency braking and rear parking sensors are standard on every trim level

Cons
Cargo capacity and small-item storage are below average
Offers less roomy third-row space than some rivals
The top trim's ride quality may be too firm for some drivers

Nissan doesn't change or update the 2020 Pathfinder in any meaningful way. The rugged-looking Rock Creek Edition that was introduced last year is still available. However, those who hope the heritage-inspired package actually packs some legitimate off-road equipment will be disappointed.

Pros
Solid value in this class, cushy cabin experience, notable 6000-pound towing capacity.

Cons
Drives more boatlike than it should, middling cargo storage, small third row.

The 2021 Dodge Durango's #6 ranking is based on its score within the Midsize SUVs category. Currently the Dodge Durango has a score of 8.0 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 58 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Ludicrous optional V8 engines
Ample seating space
Outstanding towing capability
Straightforward infotainment system

Cons
Mixed crash test results
Dull handling

Dodge has freshened the Durango's look for 2021 with new headlamps, an updated grille, a revised rear spoiler, and a tweaked front bumper, but changes are more noticeable inside. Changes to the dashboard create a more driver-oriented layout, with the infotainment display and lower controls angled slightly to the left.

Pros
Oozes machismo,
unbeatable towing capacity,
quick acceleration with the V-8.

Cons
Not particularly fuel efficient,
driver-assistance features aren't standard,
the third row of seats cost extra.

SRT Hellcat Durango provides a tire-shredding 710 horsepower
