CONS
Accelerator pedal is too touchy

The latest Ascent receives a handful of new standard features for 2021. These include LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel as well as automatic high-beams. The Touring model also adds another leather upholstery option: Slate Black with silver stitching. And as if the Ascent's incessant beeping notifications weren't annoying enough, all models now have a seat-belt chime that's meant to remind second- and third-row passengers to buckle up.

Pros
Flexible seating configurations,
cushy ride quality,
every model comes with driver assists.

Cons
Apathetic passing power,
noisy engine during hard acceleration,
third row smaller than some rivals.

The two-door "90" body style sees increased availability for 2021 and now comes in base, S, X, First Edition, and new X-Dynamic trims. Speaking of X-Dynamic, this new trim level is also now available on the four-door "110" model and provides the appearance items from the top-spec X without the expensive off-road-tech features, such as the adjustable air suspension and active differential.

PROS
Legendary off-road abilities,
smooth on-road ride,
nicely outfitted cabin.

CONS
Six-cylinder engine isn't as perky as expected,
best accessories and options add a lot to the bottom line,
brakes are difficult to smoothly modulate.
