Prioritize Your Family’s Safety in These Large SUVs

It is a common assumption that one of the best things about large SUVs is their safety aspect in case of an accident, since they are some of the largest vehicles on the road. However, this assumption can’t be backed up by size alone: the safety of many SUVs can be shown by their crash test data and availability of safety features, in which drivers seeking the safest vehicles can find true peace of mind, no matter who in the family is taking the wheel. 

It can be difficult to put a pin on which large SUV is the absolute safest, since some aren’t put through any official crash tests and others only see limited testing. To compare the safety of the large SUVs on this list, we use crash test data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which has at least partially tested all the large SUVs on this list. We also compare which safety features come standard or can be added to higher trim levels of these vehicles. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not performed crash testing on any of these large SUVs.

Many of the large SUVs on this list are equipped with tools to help monitor speed and volume levels of secondary drivers, parking sensors, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and rearview cameras, among other tech bundles and safety suites.

We update our scores periodically as new reviews and data become available, so keep in mind the scores in this article might not be identical to the scores in our new car reviews.
