Can't say I agree with the ratings. 96 for the Ascent? Highlander above the Palisade? These are the guys that gave the Telluride a higher score than the Palisade on the road test simply because the Telluride they tested had 18" wheels and the Palisade they tested had 20" and they thought the 18" wheels were more comfortable. That, of course, has nothing to to with the car itself and both cars can be fitted with 18s or 20s.
