22) 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS (Tie)

Ground Clearance: 8.5 in. | $69,550 | U.S. News Overall Score: 8.9/10

The Mercedes-Benz GLS doesn’t look especially brawny, but this luxury large SUV has enough ground clearance to inch its way onto this list. It also holds the second spot in its class rankings. All-wheel drive comes standard with every GLS model, and you’ll also get the choice of several twin-turbocharged V6 and V8 engines for plenty of power.

If you really want to venture off the pavement in this Mercedes, consider shelling out for the optional upgraded Dynamic Select system, which features an Off-Road driving mode in addition to the settings for Comfort, Sport, Slippery, and Individual driving modes that come standard.
