Keep Your Family Safe With These Large SUVs

While you might assume that all large SUVs are the safest vehicles on the road due to their impressive size, that is not necessarily the case. In fact, it’s difficult to determine the safest in the pack, because some only take part in a limited number of crash tests, and others don’t undergo official crash testing at all.

For this reason, some large SUVs and luxury large SUVs on our site don’t have a safety score. We’ve taken National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash test data into account for those that have undergone testing. Then, we compared standard safety features in those vehicles to others that have not been tested. This should give you a reasonable idea of how each SUV compares when it comes to safety.

Remember that U.S. News’ scores are regularly updated as new expert reviews and data become available. Therefore, the scores reported on the following slides may not always match up with the scores in our reviews.
