We headed off to Utah this week to off-road and tow with the new Jeep Wrangler, and headed to the motherland of Detroit to be impressed by the battery electric version of the Chevrolet Silverado. It ain’t cheap, though. We also got seat time in more traditional, and more affordable 2024 models.
Here’s what moved us.
With more grades than ever and the deep push into 4xe plug-in hybrid territory offset by the monster Rubicon 392, the 2024 Jeep Wrangler casts a wider net as it climbs up the off-road peak.
Chevy’s electric full-size truck gets down to the hard work of changing hearts and minds, but it’s a challenge with a $75,000 starting price.
The Mazda CX-90 becomes the brand’s largest SUV and most upscale model, bringing optional plug-in hybrid power plus seating for up to 8. It earns a TCC Rating of 6.8 out of 10.
The 2024 Honda CR-V and 2023 Nissan Rogue offer the kind of compact-crossover utility that’s wildly popular. But neither has managed to unseat the bestselling class champion, the Toyota RAV4.
The redesigned small crossover with standard all-wheel drive but no hybrid option gets more refined and remains a safety-loaded value, and the Sport grade adds some rally-car pop at speed.
Offered in a huge array of versions with two power options, the 2024 Subaru Outback is a solid five-seat crossover SUV choice.
The 2024 Chevy Camaro performs admirably on any track we can think of—though it’ll soon be on the retirement track. Chevy’s muscle car earns a TCC Rating of 5.2 out of 10.
Compact crossover SUVs have become the new family car paradigm. They’re useful, flexible, economical (usually), and serve many buyers as well as two or three cars combined.
