Make massive moves in these large SUVs.
So you want the elevated ride height and ground clearance of an SUV and often need to move around a small army and all their things? It sounds like a large SUV might be the four-wheeled solution for you. Large SUVs are available in many configurations, from front-wheel drive (FWD) to four-wheel drive (4WD), basic to luxury, and of course, big or extra big! Large SUVs are a great choice for growing families as you get the option of the third row with some models offering extra-long options if you need more cargo space behind that last row of seats.
Many large SUVs share their chassis and power trains with full-size pickup trucks, which makes them a good choice if you also like to go camping, sailing, or off-roading. Check out this list of the 10 best large SUVs, based on CarMax vehicle sales data from November 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019.
