2002-04 Oldsmobile Bravada

Decent road manners make the Bravada better suited to typical street duty than the TrailBlazer, though the Envoy ranked as the best new-vehicle value in this GM trio. Rivals such as the Acura MDX [...]

1990-95 Nissan Pathfinder

To its credit, the Pathfinder provides precise steering and ample cargo room. It's also rugged and as durable as a Swiss Army knife. Unfortunately, the compact sport-utility market has stampeded [...]
