Need 3 seat suggestions.

I need help shopping for new seats after an accident. My current seats are a Britax Frontier, a Britax Boulevard 70 G3 and a Britax B Safe (previous model). My riders are a
FF 8 year old approx 50 inches, 55lbs (Frontier)
FF 3 1/2 year old approx 38 inches 28lbs (Boulevard)
RF 7 months 15lbs.

I currently have them 3 across in a Ford Explorer. My budget is going to be $600-700. Any suggestions? I do like Britax mostly for customer service and looks, but I am open to others. I have not been following car seats in the last year or so and don't know the newest options. I plan on moving the baby to a convertible and the oldest to a booster only.

When you say you would like to move your oldest to a "booster only," do you mean a dedicated high back booster? Or do you mean a backless booster?

If you are planning to move him to a dedicated highback booster, do you know his seated shoulder height?

Yes, I was thinking of dedicated high back booster. I am not certain of seated shoulder height, but the Frontier straps are still coming from above her shoulders at this point. I could get another Frontier for her, but I was just going to move her to a booster only as she currently rides correctly in one for car pool. I attempted a measurement of her shoulder height and am getting 17-18 inches.

Bear in mind that insurance should pay for the seats.

What year is the Explorer? Does it have inflatable seat belts?

The at fault insurance company is paying for them, they are a small company and are just taking their time with everything, but they said they would replace.

The 3 year old is now ff.

The Explorer is a 2003, has LATCH in the two outer positions, 3 top tethers, no inflatable belts. I am hoping to be moving to a Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey soon if that is relevant.

For the 3.5 year old, how about the Britax Pioneer or a new Nautilus. I forget what they're calling it.

For the baby I'd probably do a Graco 4Ever or Milestone. I like the lower sides compared to the other Graco convertibles.

I really haven't been paying much attention to boosters but I like the Parkway my grandson has and it's one of the tallest available.
