Chevrolet Tahoe
Highlander AWD XLE
A very family friendly three-row crossover. Drives well, has a great interior and a solid powertrain. A nice, well rounded, big car.

At last, Toyota has given it a look that stands out!

Lincoln MKC
The styling's spot on and the 2.3L EcoBoost is very strong. Good ride and handling. The most relevant Lincoln in a very long time.

The Linc was a surprise in that it handled the off-road course the best of all the vehicles in the class.

2.3-liter engine is punchy and responsive, with nice oomph.

Here's a Lincoln that will help revive the brand's image!

Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 4MATIC
Fun to look at, fun to drive!

This one impressed me a lot on the off-road course.
