Crossover SUVs seem to be all the rage these days. Yet, if you have a large or growing family, and want room for them to stretch out and haul all their stuff, only a large SUV will do.
The five large SUV models we discuss below offer plenty of cargo and passenger space as well as comfort, safety features, and modern infotainment systems. Whether you’re hauling groceries around town or taking people out for a cross-country trek, these five models won’t leave you disappointed.
#1 Ford Expedition – If you want a comfortable SUV with a third row that adults can sit comfortably in, the Expedition is worth a look. Ford’s EcoBoost engine delivers a surprising amount of power and acceleration. The interior is comfortable and relatively quiet and the infotainment system includes navigation as well as hands-free dialing and other convenient features. If you want extra cargo room without sacrificing passenger comfort, look for the EL, or extended length, version.
#2 Chevy Suburban – Like the Expedition, the Suburban offers room to spread out. Passengers won’t feel cramped in the third row and there is cargo room to spare. Its V8 engine provides power and its towing capacity reaches up to 8,300 pounds. The MyLink infotainment system is easy to use as well.
#3 GMC Yukon – Power and comfort take center stage in this robust SUV. The Denali line features a 10-speed engine while still delivering best in class fuel economy of 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 on the highway. If you want extra storage space as well as a plush ride for passengers, go with the XL model. The intuitive infotainment system includes an 8-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi hotspot and Android and Apple compatibility.
#4 Nissan Armada – Priced well for this class of SUVs, the Armada features a strong engine, capable handling, and an excellent towing capacity of 8,500 pounds. Redesigned in 2017, newer used models feature a quiet, comfortable interior.
#5 Toyota Sequoia – With ample cargo space and seating for up to eight, the Sequoia is a sturdy, reliable large SUV. While the interior design and infotainment system are in need of updating, older models can be found at decent prices.
