If you can look past the gimmickry of the falcon doors, the 2021 Tesla Model X can render the big gas-guzzling family SUV obsolete.

Pros
Shockingly good performance
Smooth, controlled ride
Quick, clear 17.0-inch touchscreen
A design like no other

Cons
Gimmicky falcon-wing doors
Disappointing interior space
High prices
Awkward-looking profile

The Model X has received a styling refresh both inside and out for 2021. Cleaner lines give the SUV a more modern appearance on the outside while the cabin benefits from a redesigned infotainment display and a new F1-style square steering wheel. The lineup now consists of the Long Range and the performance-oriented Plaid models.

Pros
Impressive all-electric driving range,
fast-charging capability,
giggle-inducing acceleration.

Cons
Interior lacks luxury panache,
top-hinged Falcon Wing doors are fussy,
mediocre fit-and-finish.

The Armada gets a significant makeover for 2021, starting with a squarer front end featuring prominent headlights. The design revisions reach out back, too, with a new bumper and taillights that are connected by a continuous trim piece. There's also a newly available Midnight Edition with blacked-out trim. Inside, Nissan redesigned the center stack and added a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay.

PROS
Serenely quiet and comfy,
smooth,
potent powertrain,
pillowy ride.

CONS
Dreadful fuel economy,
some dated interior elements,
wanders at highway speeds.

The 2021 Nissan Armada is a big, comfortable brute that can tow the boat and haul the family all at once.

Strong for towing
Good safety features
Value at the base level

CONS
Gas guzzler
Third row for kids only
Gets expensive
Plodding moves
