When Toyota’s Camry-Wagon-turned-crossover known as the Highlander debuted in 2001, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about its existence. This is, after all, essentially the vehicle that assured the demise of the wagon variant of the Camry around the world, though in the US that body style had been dormant since 1997 anyway. Keen as we car guys are on the station wagon, it’s clear by now that the crossover is here to stay. The Highlander has changed a lot in the intervening years, too – though this 2014 redesign might be the most radical departure yet from that oddball Camry with two rear windshield wipers.

If you are looking for a smart sport utility vehicle that can actually deliver the goods, both in the city running errands and in the snow or off-road then check out the Honda Pilot. Speed:Sport:Life ran a 2012 model Honda Pilot from the top of the United States at Niagara Falls down to the bottom of the Mississippi River. The Pilot was filled to the brim with family, luggage and even a soap box derby car. It turned out to be the perfect road trip vehicle.
