Large luxury SUVs offer more room than midsize luxury SUVs on three rows of seating. And like their smaller siblings, do not skimp on amenities. Many of these big SUVs feature rugged body-on-frame construction which lends itself to towing and real off-road capability. Of course, you’ll pay more on the showroom floor and at the fuel pump. But, having the room to haul plenty of passengers and cargo with the bonus of being able to tow a trailer or venture off into the boonies, can make it well worth the expense. Here’s our list of the best full size luxury SUVs for 2020, ranked by Autotrader.
1. 2020 Lincoln Navigator —$77,480
Score: 4.5 / 5
With its standout styling and opulent interior, the 2020 Lincoln Navigator takes its place as America’s most luxurious full-size SUV. Lincoln upped its game considerably with its redesign, so much so, that the Navigator was named the 2019 North American Truck of the Year. Not only do you have plenty of room on three rows, but the interior also matches the best that European luxury makes have to offer.
2. 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS — $76,195
Score: 4.4 / 5
All-new for 2020, the Mercedes-Benz GLS flagship 3-row luxury SUV has an enviable blend of refinement, capability, technology, and prestige. The GLS is available in 6- and 8-cylinder versions. Both send power to the 4Matic all-wheel drive through 9-speed automatic transmissions. To help in the fuel economy department, the GLS also boasts Mercedes’ EQ electric boost mild hybrid system.
3. 2020 BMW X7 — $74,895
Score: 4.2 / 5
The BMW X7
The 2020 BMW X7 offers advanced features and 3-row seating in a performance SUV worthy of the BMW name. For 2020, BMW raised the performance quotient considerably with a range-topping X7 M50i that puts out 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, considerably more than the xDrive50i’s 456 hp and 479 lb-ft from its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8.
4. 2020 Cadillac Escalade — $76,490
Score: 3.8 / 5
The Cadillac Escalade
The big, bold Cadillac Escalade is a capable and luxurious full-size SUV that’s unabashedly American. Powered by a 6.2-liter V8, you can opt for a standard wheelbase or extended ESV model. Towing is this body-on-frame SUV’s forte. Keep in mind that an all-new 2021 model is on its way.
5. 2020 Lexus LX — $87,775
Score: 3.6 / 5
The 2020 Lexus LX 570 isn’t the most modern full-size luxury SUV, but it offers a lot of equipment and capability. The LX is another one of these high-zoot SUVs with old-school body-on-frame construction well-suited to pull loads and venture off-road. Lexus recently added a less costly 2-row version.
