10 of the Best Seven Seater SUVs - Autobytel's 7 Passenger SUV List
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/?id=32972 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

2015 Kia K900 Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/kia/k900/2015/?id=32972 Kia has been building cars
for over 20 years now. And during that time the brand has grown their
line-up of cars. What started as extremely affordable econo-boxes has
bloomed into mid-sized cars offered at a great value; and now we have the
K900 which pushes the perception of what a luxury car can be. The 2015 Kia
K900 has a base price of $59,500.
If Kia is going to be selling a luxury car, then said car must look the
part. On the outside the K900 has a stylish signature grille, adaptive
front projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, and 19-inch wheels.
Out back the K900 looks like a BMW. It is hard to sell a luxury car to
luxury car buyers without a potent power plant under the hood. The 2015 Kia
K900 is powered by Hyundai's TAO 5.0 liter V-8 GDI engine that makes 420 horsepower and 376
lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the
On the inside, Kia has tried really hard to get the luxury part right. The
seats are incredibly comfortable and covered in soft Nappa leather. All the
touch points, materials, and dash layout all give the K900 a very upscale
feel and look which is important in order to get the buyers looking for an
Audi or Lexus. Finally Kia offers a level of technology that is not readily
available at this price point which sets the car apart from the rest of the
luxury car player.
Kia says the buyer of the K900 is looking for style, technology, luxury,
and value. Brand perception is up and hopefully the K900 can make a
positive impact for Kia.

2012 Chevrolet Suburban Test Drive & SUV Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/suburban-1500/2012/?id=32972 Want to
know the oldest nameplate in Automotive History? The Suburban has been
around since 1935 and over the years it has been billed as a carryall
vehicle. The 2012 Chevrolet Suburban is a full sized SUV that provides
seating for 7, a big V-8 engine, and a high tow payload capacity. This
full-size SUV is easy to drive with good acceleration, braking, and
handling abilities. The base price for a 2012 Chevrolet Suburban is $42,220
with the top of the line LTZ 4x4 costing $58,115.
On the outside the Suburban is known for its rugged good looks. Chevy added
some nice lines to break up the big boxy look. Up front the chrome grille
and big headlights look good. The 18-inch aluminum wheels look nice but you
can upgrade to 20-inch or 22-inch wheels. The interior of the Suburban is
very functional and you can upgrade to a higher trim level or add
additional packages to meet your level of luxury. The 2012 Chevrolet
Suburban can seat up to 8 or 9 passengers. There are modern conveniences
like a driver information center complete with large screen and navigation.
The seats are heated and cooled. There is also an nice DVD entertainment
system for both the 2nd and 3rd row of passengers.
The 2012 Chevy Suburban is motivated by a Vortec 5.3 liter V-8 engine that
makes 320 horsepower and 335 lb-ft. of
torque. The maximum towing capacity is 8100 lbs. There is a heavy duty
trailering package available for only $230 that adds an oil cooler for the
engine and an oil cooler for the transmission oil. The package also adds a
3.42 rear axle ratio. The Suburban has a couple of fuel saving techniques
that include an Active Fuel Management system which turns-off 4 cylinders
under light use. Fuel economy ratings check in at 15 MPG in the city and 22
MPG on the highway.
If you need a full-size SUV that can fit all your family and friends along
with your necessary luggage and can also tow your toys out back, the 2012
Chevrolet Suburban is for you.

возможных блокировках - цепями на своих
задних колесах. Честно я не ожидал такого

FJ Cruiser, Sequoia, and Hummer H3 Off-Road on Rattlesnake Trail
After school had finished this year, on my second to last day in Utah
before moving back to Colorado, I decided to go hit up Rattlesnake out at 5
Mile Pass one last time and I was able to get the new president of the UVU
Off-Road Adventure Club to come (Spencer in his Hummer H3) and then my
uncle decided to come a well (Adam in the Sequoia). We had a pretty good
time but it became obvious that having a locker makes life a ton easier. We
thought the Sequoia had one but real quick we realized on Rattlesnake that
this was not the case, so in a lot of situations, as you'll see, he had to
bump it or just gas it. And I think for the Sequoia, having that V8 on the
trail was a big help for getting it through.
Sorry there is no music in this video but there will be music in some of my
Toyota Sequoia Review from Consumer Reports
The Toyota Sequoia is impressive off-road, and has the ability to tow heavy
trailers. But it can't escape all of the disadvantages of a big SUV. Find

2014 Toyota Sequoia Platinum Review, Start Up and Walkaround
Welcome to JustinsCarReviews. Today I present to you the 2014 Toyota
High Quality Photos of this vehicle:
This trim level of the Sequoia is the most fully loaded you can buy.

Suspension in the rear
Dynamic Laser Cruise Control

Second Row Heated Captain Seats
Rear Seat DVD Entertainment System with 9-inch LCD Monitor and Blu-ray™
Blind Spot Monitor
Interior quality could use improvements such as the dash board, plastics,
shifter, wood grain accents and the door panels. Soft touch materials are
correct of where it is needed. The front seats are extremely plush and
soft, leather has a nice graining and feels soft and supple. The ventilated
seats work amazing! and the second row captain chairs are heated. Third row
seating feels low to the ground, but legroom is good. You third row seat
also power reclines and folds flat. Total vehicle price of this Sequoia is
$68,275.00. That's almost half the price of a Cadillac Escalade ESV. The
i-Force 5.7L V8 comes standard and is rated at 381 HP and 401 FT/LBS of
