If You Need to Haul a Lot of People and a Heavy Load, This Is Your List

In many ways, the sport utility vehicle is the ultimate compromise of capability and comfort. These vehicles combine truck-based chassis and powerful engines with comfortable seating and amenities for the best of both worlds.

Through the last two decades, many SUVs have lost their teeth, moving towards more car-based platforms. This makes them more pleasant to drive in normal conditions, but they lose that truck-like capability. A Toyota Highlander can hold a family’s gear, but it can’t tow like a V8-powered SUV. It’s big SUVs, like the Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition, and others, that are actually capable of doing serious towing.
