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

Most shoppers put a high priority on the cost of the vehicle, and for good reason. New cars are often the second-most expensive thing people ever buy, after a house. But shoppers also worry that if they buy the cheapest new SUV, they might also be buying a vehicle that requires a lot of maintenance and expensive, frequent fill-ups at the gas station. 

That’s where the U.S. News Best Car for the Money awards can help. We look at the value and quality of each vehicle in a particular class and find the combination that delivers the biggest bang for your buck. We look at the long-term costs of owning the vehicle as well as the features and space people are often looking for in a 3-row SUV.  

We base these rankings on data. TrueCar provides average transaction prices, and Vincentric shares the total cost of ownership over five years. We use the U.S. News scores and rankings to determine the quality of each vehicle. These are compiled using expert reviews, safety data, and reliability ratings. We updated these scores as new information becomes available, so the overall scores listed here may not match the scores in the reviews.
