SUVs were once considered too clunky to drive, as well as being gas guzzlers. That’s all changed, thanks in large part to Lincoln, Cadillac, and Mercedes. These three luxury automakers proved that driving an SUV isn’t just for soccer moms and have several vehicles that made CARFAX’s list of 10 Best Full-Size Luxury SUVs of 2020.
2020 Lincoln Navigator
The 2020 Lincoln Navigator comes with a lot of great features that help it stand out in a crowded segment. The Navigator comes equipped with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 450 hp. This is paired with a 10-speed transmission that helps owners tow up to 8,700 pounds.
One of the best features about this three row SUV is the amount of leg room in the back row. While it may not be the seat everyone fights over, at least no one will be scrunched up and uncomfortable.
It’s not cheap with a starting price of $76,185, but most luxury vehicles are going to be costly. The important thing about the Navigator is that you get what you pay for.
2020 Lincoln Navigator L
As big as the Lincoln Navigator is, for some people it’s simply not large enough. That’s where the Navigator L comes in. It’s a Navigator with an extended-wheelbase, offering more room than ever.
This gives the Navigator L 17 more cubic feet of cargo space than its smaller sibling. This comes at the price of towing ability, however.
With its hands-free power liftgate, as well as second and third-row seats that power-fold, the Lincoln Navigator L makes loading up a breeze. It has a starting price of $84,925.
2021 Cadillac Escalade ESV
When it comes to room, nothing beats the 2021 Cadillac Escalade ESV. Not only is there plenty of room on the third row for legs, but there is also plenty of headroom. This makes it perfect for anyone who needs a large vehicle, and has tall passengers who might need to squeeze in the back.
Since it only gets 16 mpg, it isn’t the best for fuel mileage, but the extra space might be enough to tempt some drivers in. The starting price is $79,195.
2021 Cadillac Escalade
The 2021 Cadillac Escalade may not be as roomy as the Escalade ESV, but it’s got plenty of other features to draw in consumers.
In an effort to shed its reputation for developing vehicles with dated looks, Cadillac is bringing in the tech. In this case, it’s a curved OLED screen that has consumers going wild.
It might look like one huge 38-inch screen, but it’s actually three separate ones. Still, it’s more than cool enough to justify the starting price of $79,195.
2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS
For anyone looking for both a large luxury SUV and great fuel economy, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS is a great pick. It gets 21 mpg combined city/hwy, which is very nice for a large SUV.
The GLS also comes equipped with a car wash feature that makes going through the car wash a stress free event. Only Mercedes would think of something so cool, but it doesn’t end there. There are tons of standard features on the GLS that make it more than worth the price of $76,000 for those who can afford it.
2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class
Mercedes may not be known for its tough looking vehicles, but that’s exactly what the G-Class is. Like the Jeep Wrangler, it was originally a military vehicle that found a home amongst the civilian class.
With a starting price of $130,900, the G-Class is easily the most expensive vehicle on this list, but many consider it worth it. Not only does it look great cruising the city streets, but it can handle the off-road trails with ease. That’s why so many drivers love the G-Class.
