Honestly, you aren't going to be able to CRAM three car seats in the back of either vehicle, much less have them installed correctly/ safely.
I had twins first and drove a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder. A very skinny (and I do mean SKINNY) person could squeeze between the two infant car seats, but could not buckle the middle seatbelt.
By the time my girls were 4 months old, we were doing some serious car shopping. I found out #3 was on the way when the girls were 5 months old, so it was a good thing we'd been looking!
Three in car seats....time to move on to either a mini-van or larger SUV. We ended up with a Yukon XL (same size as a Suburban) and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I have the girls forward facing in the third seat and DS is rear facing behind the driver's seat. Even in my much larger SUV, there is no way a third seat would fit between the girls' seats in the back.
