Take a Look at This Year’s Best SUVs

Crossovers and SUVs continue to drive auto manufacturers’ sales numbers, but not every SUV is a surefire hit. Today’s sport utility vehicles are loaded with features and are more fuel efficient than ever, which makes it hard to stand out in a crowd. An SUV that has only a few minor flaws, such as a mediocre reliability rating or the absence of a popular feature, can sink to the bottom half of its class, even if it is otherwise a good vehicle.

The U.S. News methodology takes those factors into account, and many more. Our scoring system evaluates vehicles based on the qualities that are most important to people who are actually shopping for a new SUV. Each vehicle we review is scored in a number of categories, which determine its overall score and its spot in our rankings for each class. This overall score is how we’ve identified the best SUVs from the rest. If you are shopping for a new SUV this year, here are the best 2018 models you can buy right now.
