Top Rated Biggest SUVs of 2018

Top Rated Biggest SUVs of 2018

October 27, 2017

Whether you want a big SUV because you have a softball team to haul around, are in construction and need a fully enclosed vehicle to transport building supplies or you are the carpool maven at work, you’ll want to see what’s coming in 2018. Most of the full-sized SUVs seat eight, but some can only carry seven. There are a handful of mid-sized SUVs that are much roomier than you might think, too. Take a look at the figures before you write them off.


Does GMC make a big SUV?


Yes. GMC, which owns Chevrolet, makes a Yukon. It has room for eight passengers, including the driver. You can get a front bench seat in the SLE trim, though, that gives you room for nine. The 2018 Yukon has 15.3 cubic feet behind the third row of seats, 51.7 cubic feet behind the second row and 94.7 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third rows folded flat. The Yukon XL has another 15.3 cubic feet of space, which gives it the same cargo space as the Chevrolet Suburban. It gets 14-16 mpg in the city and 21-23 mpg on the highway. Base MSRP for the 2018 Yukon ranges from $52,080 to $69,165.


What are the biggest budget-friendly SUVs?


The Chevrolet Traverse is actually considered a mid-sized SUV, but it has a total cargo space of 98.2 cubic feet with the second and third row of seats folded flat. There is room for seven or eight people, depending on which trim option you go with. Prices for this roomy, budget-friendly SUV range from $30,875 to $52,995. It also gets fairly good mileage with 17-18 mpg in the city and 25-27 mpg on the highway.

The Volkswagen Atlas seats seven and has up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third rows of seats folded flat. There are 55.5 cubic feet behind the second row and 20.6 cubic feet behind the third row. It gets 17-22 mpg in the city and 23-26 mpg on the highway. Base MSRP for the 2018 Atlas is between $30,500 and $48,490.

The Dodge Durango has room for seven people and has a total of 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third rows of seats folded flat. With the seats in their upright positions, there are 17.2 cubic feet of space behind the third row. If you fold the third row flat, you get 47.7 cubic feet of space. The 2018 Dodge Durango gets 19 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway. Base MSRP starts at $29,995 and goes up to $43,695 for the Durango R/T.

The Honda Pilot seats seven or eight and has a total of 83.7 cubic feet of cargo space. With the third row of seats folded flat there are 42.3 cubic feet, and with the third row up in place there are 13.8 cubic feet of space. The 2018’s aren’t out yet; however, the 2017 Honda Pilot gets 18-20 mpg in the city and 26-27 mpg on the highway. Base MSRP for the 2017 Pilot ranges from $30,745 and $47,220.


What's the biggest Luxury SUV?


The Lincoln Navigator is the largest of the luxury SUVs. It seats seven and has plenty of cargo space. There are 18.1 cubic feet of space in the back with both rows of seats in place. With the second and third row of seats folded flat, you get 103.3 cubic feet of space.

The 2018 Lincoln Navigator costs between $72,055 and $93,705 before you add options. It gets 16 mpg in the city and 21-23 mpg on the highway.

The Cadillac Escalade is almost as big. It seats seven and offers 94 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third row of seats folded flat. The longer Escalade ESV seats eight and has 121 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded flat. MSRP for the 2018 Escalade starts at $73,995, and it gets 14 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

The Infiniti QX80 is the third largest luxury SUV with a total of 95.1 cubic feet of cargo space. It has room for eight people. The 2018 QX80 isn’t out yet. The 2017 models get 13-14 mpg in the city and 19-20 mpg on the highway. Their base MSRPs range from $63,850 to $89,450.


Who makes a bigger SUV, Chevrolet or Ford?


The Chevrolet Suburban and Ford Expedition are both huge SUVs with seating for eight people, including the driver. They are similarly sized and priced, but there are a few noticeable differences.

The Suburban is basically a full-sized Chevrolet Silverado with a fully-enclosed body. It can haul almost as much as the Silverado. It comes with Chevy’s 5.3-L EcoTec3 V8 engine that gets 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. The Suburban has a total of 121.7 cubic feet of cargo space with both the second and third row of seats folded flat. There are 76.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row of seats and 39.3 cubic feet behind the third row of seats. The 2018 Suburban is a little cheaper with base MSRPs between $51,445 and $66,125.

The Ford Expedition is a fully-enclosed F-150. It comes with Ford’s 3.5-L EcoBoost Engine and gets 17 mpg in the city and 23-24 mpg on the highway. There are 18.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row of seats. If you fold down the third row of seats, you get 55 cubic feet. With both the second and third row of seats folded flat, there are 108.3 cubic feet of cargo space. The Expedition MAX is 1 foot longer than a regular Expedition, which gives you 42.6 cubic feet of cargo space with both the second and third row of seats in place. That is a total of 130.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded down. Yes, Ford wins! The Expedition is the roomiest SUV. Base MSRP for the 2018 Expedition ranges from $61,695 to $65,270.
