Here Are the Top Contenders From the U.S. News Best 3-Row SUVs for the Money Awards

The annual U.S. News Best Car for the Money awards highlight vehicles that offer the best quality and value in 14 categories, which make these awards a great place to start the hunt for your next new vehicle.

To determine quality, we look at a vehicle’s safety and reliability information, combined with the opinions of expert automotive reviewers. This provides an overview of a model’s strengths and weaknesses that is backed up by actual data.

In a similar vein, value is more than an indicator of a vehicle’s price compared to its rivals. Price is a factor (we use TrueCar to calculate the average transaction price for each model), but we also take into account a vehicle’s cost of ownership, using data from Vincentric to consider fuel efficiency, insurance costs, and maintenance.
