Consumer Reports Best American Luxury SUVs for 2022

The best American luxury SUVs for 2022 are not necessarily made in America but come from American brands. Many brands have been trying to build vehicles on U.S. grounds lately, but some are still coming off the production line in China. Ford makes the popular Mustang Mach-E electric SUV in Mexico, while the GM builds the Lincoln Navigator in Kentucky.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is one of the best American luxury SUVs for 2022

According to Consumer Reports, the Ford Mustang Mach-E is the most American luxury SUV that happens to be electric. The 2022 Mach-E has some pretty high ratings from Consumer Reports. The electric SUV performed well on the road test and during the predicted reliability calculation. The predicted owner satisfaction score was also high.

Ford builds the Mach-E at the Cuautitlán Assembly in Cuautitlán Izcalli, Mexico. While the automaker has plans to ramp up production at that factory, it doesn’t sound like it will be moving onto American soil anytime soon. Ford currently builds the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning at the new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan.

Price Range:  $43,895 – $61,995

The Buick Encore is another option for the best American luxury SUVs

The 2022 Buick Encore was Consumer Reports’ pick for the next entry-level American luxury SUV. The Encore performed well on the road test and received high scores for the predicted reliability. The predicted owner satisfaction was below average. However, the price for the Buick Encore makes it a good option for those looking to get into something a little more luxurious. The Encore is built in China but will be discontinued after this year to focus on other models.

Price Range:  $24,600 – $25,220

A smaller sport utility vehicle is the Buick Envision

Similar to the last Buick, the 2022 Buick Envision is the pick for a compact American luxury SUV. The Envision scored well on the road test and the predicted reliability. The predicted owner satisfaction scored a bit better on the owner satisfaction front. Buick builds the Envision in China right now but it is still an American brand.

Price Range:  $31,500 – $41,650

GM builds the GMC Acadia in Spring Hill, Tennessee

The GMC Acadia is a good pick for midsize American luxury SUVs if you need a little more room. The GMC Acadia is built in America at the Lansing Delta Township Assembly in Lasing, Michigan. GMC previously assembled it at the GM Spring Hill Assembly in Spring Hill, Tennessee. That factory now builds the Cadillac XT5 and XT6 and the new Cadillac Lyriq electric SUV.

Price Range:  $34,800 – $48,600

The Lincoln Navigator fits the bill for the best American luxury SUVs

The 2022 Lincoln Navigator is one of the best American luxury SUVs for 2022. Considered a large or full-size sport utility vehicle, the Navigator is the bigger SUV in Lincoln’s lineup. The Lincoln Navigator is built at the Ford Kentucky Truck Assembly in Louisville, Kentucky. Consumer Reports gave it good scores on the road test and the predicted owner satisfaction. The reliability of this luxury SUV is average, but that’s normal with larger vehicles.

Price Range:  $77,000 – $109,035
