Here’s the Ranking From the U.S. News Best Midsize 3-Row SUV for the Money Award

It’s important to save money on your new SUV purchase, but that doesn’t mean you should skimp on vehicle quality and features. Your priorities, safety, and happiness are indispensable. Buying a cheap SUV that has poor fuel economy, low crash test scores, and may eventually cost you more money in maintenance and repairs is not the answer. Fortunately, just because an SUV is inexpensive to own doesn’t mean it has to lack quality.

To help you make an informed buying decision, we offer our U.S. News Best Car for the Money awards. The awards designate vehicles in each class with the best overall combination of value and quality. The top vehicles on our list excel because they’re budget-friendly, have low long-term ownership costs, and provide plenty of features and satisfying performance.

To measure vehicle value, we use TrueCar average transaction prices and Vincentric five-year total cost of ownership data. Our quality assessment comes from U.S. News scores and rankings, which are derived from a combination of expert reviews from the automotive press, as well as safety and reliability data. (Remember that we update our scores on a continual basis as new expert reviews and data become available. So, the scores in this article may not match the scores in our rankings.)
