Best Full-Size Luxury SUVs

Updated April 12, 2022


Each vehicle gets its own detailed analysis, which includes scores from a variety of reviewers and SUV specialists including JD Power, Edmunds, and Kelley Blue Book. We combine their opinions and review scores with our own to create an objective score for each vehicle using our proprietary technology.

The links below will take you to detailed break-downs of the scoring and in-depth information about every vehicle.  Each week we add new reviews, videos and data points from multiple automobile critics to ensure that the SUV Power Rankings scoring for each vehicle is as accurate as possible.

  1. 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class   — SCORE: 81
    The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS is a solid contender in the luxury large SUV class. It’s an all-around winner, with plenty of power, a smooth ride, and a world-class interior.
  2. 2021 BMW X7  — SCORE: 81
    The 2022 BMW X7 is a well-rounded SUV, with an excellent cabin, strong engines, good ride, and wealth of technology. However, you may want to consider a rival SUV if you prioritize cargo space or need a very roomy seven-seat vehicle. 
  3. 2021 Cadillac Escalade  — SCORE: 81
    The redesigned 2021 Cadillac Escalade competes well in the heavyweight luxury large SUV class. It boasts an attractive cabin, sharp technology, oodles of passenger and cargo space, and a comfortable ride. It gets subpar fuel economy estimates for the class, and some critics wish the engine provided a little more oomph.
  4. 2021 Audi Q7  — SCORE: 80
    The Audi Q7 has potent engine options – especially in the performance-oriented Audi SQ7 – a blissful ride, and poised handling that help to distinguish it as one of the more well-rounded vehicles in the class.   Inside, it’s lush with high-quality materials, and its infotainment system features state-of-the-art features like the Audi Virtual Cockpit. However, passenger and cargo space are sparse, and the Q7 gets poor fuel economy.
  5. 2021 Genesis GV 80  — SCORE: 79
    The all-new 2021 Genesis GV80 is one of the most well-rounded vehicles in it’s class.  It’s driving experience seems to be love hat, more than some of its classmates, but it has fairly nimble handling, and its interior is as nice as any competitors, including those from BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. Even better, the GV80 carries a lower price tag than many better-known competitors, making it a strong value.


  6. 2021 Mercedes-AMG G63  — SCORE: 78
  7. 2021 Land Rover Range Rover  — SCORE: 77
  8. 2021 GMC Yukon Denali  — SCORE: 75
  9. 2021 Lexus LX  — SCORE: 73
  10. 2021 Infiniti QX80  — SCORE: 69
