Consumer Reports chose its top picks by examining and testing out a number of factors. These include safety features, quality, customer satisfaction, fuel efficiency, reliability, and technology.

The testers were very pleased with the engine options available, “Engine choices include a variety of V6s and a 5.0-liter V8. The 2.7-liter and 3.5-liter turbo V6s and the V8 are teamed with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Both turbo V6s are quiet and effortless, lending themselves to towing. Fuel economy is commendable.”
