These Spacious SUVs Will Reliably Get You to Your Destination

If you regularly need to transport a large handful of passengers, a three-row SUV is likely the way to go. Spacious SUVs offer the utility of a minivan, plus a high seating position, rugged looks, and plenty of features. Even if you don’t need room for seven or more passengers, strictly speaking, there’s something to be said for a vehicle that lets the kids spread themselves out – especially during a long trip. Of course, if you can confidently rely on your SUV to carry you to your final destination, all the better.

Predicted reliability ratings are an important factor in the U.S. News scoring and ranking methodology. We use data from J.D. Power to rank a vehicle on a scale of one to five, with five indicating excellent predicted reliability. Vehicles that fare well in our rankings tend to have reliability scores in the three- to four-point range, though there are plenty of other factors that affect a vehicle’s overall score and ranking, so this isn’t a hard-and-fast rule.

These 12 three-row SUVs are listed from the worst reliability score to the best, though we’ve weeded out models with a reliability score of three points or less. That means every vehicle in this list has a score of 3.5 or more, indicating at least above-average reliability. As a tiebreaker, we’ve also included each model’s U.S. News overall score. In cases where two vehicles both receive the same reliability and overall scores, the SUV with the lower base price takes the higher position. 

Keep in mind that both predicted reliability scores and overall scores may change over time, since we update our reviews as new information becomes available. Therefore, the numbers in this slideshow might not match the most current version of each vehicle’s full review.
