10 of the Best Seven Seater SUVs - Autobytel's 7 Passenger SUV List
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/sport-utility-vehicles/ Even though more
and more Americans are downsizing to save money, there is still a need for
7 passenger SUVs and Crossovers. Let's take a look at 10 of the best seven
seater SUVs in the U.S.A.
10) Lincoln MKT - The Lincoln MKT is a luxury version of the Ford Flex with
a total cargo area of over 70 cubic feet. The engine that powers the MKT is
3.7 liter V-6 but there is also a 3.5 liter ecoBoost V-6 engine option. The Lincoln MKT can
be had with AWD too. But what really makes the MKT stand out from the crown
of seven seater SUVs is its unique styling featuring a massive front
9) Buick Enclave -- The Buick Enclave is a worth advisory for some of the 7
Passenger Luxury SUVs like the Acura MDX. The 3.6 liter direct injection
V-6 is a proven commodity having over 280 horsepower plus the ability
to tow 4500 lbs. Where this seven passenger SUV really shines is the
interior. The Enclave is comprised of high quality materials and top notch
technology which help the Enclave make it to the list of 10 best seven
8) Subaru Tribeca -- The Tribeca is Subaru's largest vehicle offering
boasting AWD and room for 7 passengers. With tons of interior room the
Tribeca is not only an effective hauler but it also a capable off-road SUV.
The 3.6 liter V-6 makes over 250 horsepower which is enough
to get the job done.
7) Acura MDX -- The Acura MDX is one of those vehicles that absolutely
nailed its mission statement by being a reliable premium SUV that is built
to last. Standard Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive makes this a sure footed
seven seater SUV. The 3.7 liter V-6 engine provides plenty of power. The
Acura MDX is one of those rare vehicles that owners want to keep forever.
6) Ford Expedition -- The Ford Expedition is a true body-on-frame SUV that
can handle 7 or 8 passengers and their gear thanks to 108 cubic feet or
storage. This large SUV can also tow over 9000 lbs. The 301 horsepower 5.4 liter V-8
might not be the most cutting edge but its works well when mated to the
6-speed automatic transmission. The Expedition is an old school SUV and you
can negotiate deep discounts on this seven seater vehicle.
5) Honda Pilot -- Honda was a little bit late to the SUV game with the
Pilot but they have quickly emerged as a measuring stick for other brands.
The 250 horsepower
3.5 liter V-6 engine is the smallest in the group but it does feature
cylinder deactivation to help save fuel. Perhaps the greatest attribute of
this 7 passenger SUV is that it's very easy to drive for its size. Honda
understands how these SUVs are being used so they made this one of the best
on the market for families.
4) Infiniti JX -- When Infiniti launched the 7 passenger JX crossover,
their #1 objective was to give shoppers a viable alternative to the Acura
MDX. Early sales success indicates they have a winner on their hands. The
aggressive styling, cutting edge entertainment, and trick motorized second
row make the JX one great choice as the best seven seater SUVs. The
Infiniti JX is built for comfort and the CVT trans eliminates shifting so
that the 3.5 liter V-6 engine keeps all 265 horses running smoothly.
3) Mazda CX-9 -- The Mazda CX-9 has remained relatively unchanged since its
debut back in 2007. Although this seven seater SUV is one of the oldest, it
still represents a great value. The 3.7 liter V-6 makes 273 horsepower and is mated to a
6-speed automatic. What the CX-9 may lack in flash more than makes up in
the areas of reliability and overall value. Mazda may be known more for
their Zoom Zoom cars but they can also make some great family automobiles
that can transport up to 7 people.
2) Nissan Armada -- When Nissan launched the Armada, the intention was to
put a dent in Suburban and Expedition sales by providing a full-sized truck
based vehicle with Japanese engineering. The Armada's 5.7 liter V-8 engine
is more than capable of carrying 7 passengers, their luggage, and a towing
a larger object weighing over 9000 lbs. While there are many 7 seater SUVs
and crossovers out there, few can transport them as comfortably as the
1) Chevrolet Suburban -- At the top of the Autobytel best seven passenger
car list is the Chevy Suburban. This is one of the longest running
nameplates in the automotive world spanning many decades. There is a reason
for this; the Suburban can carry 7 or 8 passengers, all their gear, and
more with a very comfortable ride.

2013 Toyota Land Cruiser Test Drive & SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/land-cruiser/2013/ The Toyota Land Cruiser
has been around since the early 1950's when it was built for military use
during the Korean War. A few years later the Land Cruiser became a capable
civilian vehicle that could handle off-road conditions. The current
200-series Land Cruiser has morphed into a large luxury SUV but still
retains its hard-core off-road ability. The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser has a
base price of $78,555.
For almost 60 years Toyota has been producing the Land Cruiser. This is a
legendary off-road vehicle that has built a reputation for not only being
capable but durable as well. Not to be confused with the Land Rover, the
Land Cruiser really has some unique styling cues about it. The Land Cruiser
has always been designed to be a gifted off-road sport utility vehicle and
in many countries this is used as a police or military vehicle still to
this day. Over the decades the Land Cruiser has really evolved; it's been
manufactured in all shapes and sizes. Here in the U.S. we primarily get the
8-passenger 4-door version.
Back in 1999, the Land Cruiser was converted over from a 6-cylinder to a
V-8 which elevated the SUV's status to a more family friendly vehicle.
Today there is a 5.7 liter V-8 engine that makes 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy is 13 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway.
Overall the interior is great with the Land Cruiser having the ability to
carry 8-passengers in comfort. The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser offers an
amazing driving experience. Its size is not too large like a Suburban.
Instead the Land Cruiser is the ideal size for an 8-passenger large SUV.
This is a great vehicle that you will want to keep in your family for a

2012 Cadillac Escalade Test Drive & Luxury SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/escalade/2012/ The 2012 Cadillac Escalade
might be on the higher end of the price scale for an SUV. However the
Escalade wasn't made for ordinary soccer moms and trips to the grocery
store, Cadillac's premium SUV was built for those looking for luxurious
comfort. It's not uncommon to see rap stars, movie stars, diplomats, and
other famous high profile people stepping out of an Escalade. The 2012
Cadillac Escalade exudes style and sophistication, and is also packed full
of the latest and greatest technology as well as a very powerful engine.
The base price for this SUV is $63,170 with the top of the line Platinum
Edition AWD moving off dealer lots starting at $82,495.
The 2012 Cadillac Escalade is powered by a powerful 6.2 liter V-8 engine
that produces 403 horsepower and 417 lb-ft. of
torque. The Escalade's transmission is a 6-speed automatic that is very
responsive and great for towing. The Escalade also comes with either a RWD
or AWD drivetrain. Fuel economy for the 4x2 model is 14 MPG in the city and
18 MPG on the highway thanks to Active Fuel Management which essentially
turns the Escalade V-8 into a 4-cylinder engine at low operating loads. The
suspension features Magnetic Ride Control Shocks that sense changes in the
road and make adjustments every few milliseconds. This technology allows
the shocks to dampen almost instantaneously providing a comfortable ride.
The Escalade has always been known to have the latest and greatest
technology available from Cadillac. Some great features found on the 2012
model include: Blind Zone Alert, Touch-Screen Navigation, Bose surround
sound, and more. There is DVD entertainment for the rear passengers.
Leather seating and surfaces along with high end wood trim pieces are
prevalent in the 2012 Cadillac Escalade. And now the Escalade also features
cool LED headlights and taillights.

which are a must for any luxury vehicle. The drive system features Mercedes
4MATIC all-wheel drive to help keep the GL on the road.
