5. 2022 Acura MDX has lots of audio options

The 2022 Acura MDX comes with a ton of safety-related technology, including radar and camera sensors that monitor the SUV’s surroundings. It has two 12.3” screens and a 360-degree parking camera. 

The newest Acura MDX comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa. There’s a wireless charger in the front row and USB ports standard in the second row. If you want USB ports in the third row, you can spring for a premium trim option.

4. The 2022 Jaguar I-Pace has automatic windshield wipers

The 2022 Jaguar I-Pace has LED headlights and windshield wipers that turn on automatically when it rains. The I-Pace has keyless entry, and heated and cooled seats. 

You can get both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the 2022 Jaguar I-Pace. It also comes with dual infotainment touchscreens and a 17-speaker audio system.

3. The 2021 Cadillac Escalade has a great navigation system

MOTORTREND says that the 2021 Cadillac Escalade has “more inches of screen in its front row than it does inches of legroom in its third row.” The Escalade’s OLED setup is made up of three screens totaling 38”. It also has an “augmented reality function” which shows live-view navigation.

The Escalade comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 19-speaker sound system, making it one of the most high-tech SUVs.

2. The 2021 Tesla Model Y is one of the most high tech SUVs

It’s probably no surprise that the 2021 Tesla Model Y comes with a host of technology. After all, Full Self-Driving and Autopilot are constantly in the news. Yet the Model Y has additional features which may be attractive to car shoppers. 

The Model Y doesn’t come with Apple CarPlay, but it does have Spotify. On the Model Y’s 15” screen you can find navigation, the speedometer and even adjust the car’s settings. Perhaps the best part of the Model Y’s technology is its ability to be updated on its own. That’s how the recent Full Self-Driving update arrived for most Tesla customers.

1. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is the most high-tech SUV

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is one of the most high-tech SUVs. Perhaps the biggest technology draw to the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is its large infotainment screen. At 15.5”, it’s huge but not overcrowded. Autoblog says that icons are clearly labeled and easy to see. While the Mach-E does come with Apple CarPlay, using it means you can’t use some other functions, like navigation.

The Mach-E also comes with a 4G hotspot, as well as USB-A and USB-C ports. As an added bonus, it has a wireless charging pad. 

If you want an SUV with the most technology that you can get, any of these SUVs is a great option. By considering whether navigation, music or performance is your priority, you should be able to narrow down your choices and select a technologically advanced SUV that’s just right for you.
