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.

2012 Land Rover LR4 Test Drive & SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/land-rover/lr4/2012/?id=32972 Land Rover makes
some of the most capable off-road vehicles in the world. In fact the Land
Rover has been navigating the toughest terrain for decades. So can the 2012
Land Rover LR4 adapt to suburban life? Well the Land Rover LR4 is very
comfortable, it is easy to drive, has plenty of power, and can seat up to 7
passengers. The base price on the 2012 Land Rover LR4 is $48,900 with the
top of the line HSE LUX model going for $58,995.
The 2012 Land Rover LR4 is powered by a 5.0 liter V-8 direct injected
engine that produces 375 horsepower and 375 lb-ft. of
torque. Power is transferred to the wheels through a 6-speed ZF automatic
transmission. The Land Rover LR4 sports full time AWD. Fuel economy is 12
MPG in the city and 17 MPG on the highway.
The AWD system is pretty technologically advanced which is why Land Rover
SUVs are considered the best off-road vehicles the world over. The LR4
features Hill Descent Control which allows the vehicle to navigate steep
terrain without the driver needing to use the brake or accelerator. The
Gradient Release Control also works with the HDC to provide a smooth pace
downhill. The Electronic Traction Control supplies power to the wheel that
needs it most in the even of slippage. At each corner of the SUV there is a
sophisticated air suspension. This is used to either lower the LR4 for
street use or to raise the SUV almost 5 inches for maximum ground clearance
while off-road. Dynamic Stability Control improves the LR4's handing while
on the road. Tall SUVs are known to roll over but the Roll Stability
Control System works to keep all 4 wheels on the road. The 2012 Land Rover
LR4 has a towing capacity of 7,700 lbs. To help prevent trailer sway the
LR4 has something called Trailer Stability Assist to help correct any
Besides the great off-road capabilities the 2012 Land Rover LR4 comes
packed with tons of luxury features and option on the inside. The seats are
wrapped in high-end leather as are many of the interior surfaces. You can
choose between a Walnut trim or a Black Lacquer trim. The driver sits in an
optimum position so that they have a commanding view of the road. The huge
sunroof is called the Alpine Roof and provides tons of light to all the
passengers. A 7-inch touch screen navigation unit and Harmon/Kardon stereo
system are wonderful features.
The 2012 Land Rover LR4 love to hit the trail and take on tough off-road
challenges. But this SUV is more than capable being your daily luxury SUV

2013 Land Rover Range Rover Test Drive & Luxury SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/land-rover/range-rover/2013/?id=32972 The Range
Rover was first launched way back in 1970 and now for the 2013 model year
there is an all new and totally redesigned 4th generation SUV. The overall
look has still remained throughout the years while also evolving with the
times. And this new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover looks as amazing as ever.
Land Rover states this vehicle has a couple of different design elements
that include: Luxury, Sustainability, Relevant Functionality and
Desirability. Underneath the all the luxury lives the soul of one of the
most capable off-road vehicles ever produced for the mass car market. But
with the high price tag many of these luxury SUVs will never step foot off
the pavement. The base price on a new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover is
$82,650 with the top of the line Supercharged Plus model with the
Autobiography Package starting at $130,100.
For over 40 years Land Rover has been producing the Range Rover and over
that time this vehicle has become the ultimate luxury SUV. This new 4th
generation Range Rover is bold, beautiful, and powerful. This high end
vehicle drives so well you would be hard pressed to find anything wrong
with it. The Range Rover offers a great powerplant, luxurious ride, and all
the features and options you would expect from the leader in luxury SUVs.
The 2013 Range Rover has been completely redesigned inside and out. For
starters they really simplified the instrument panel. Now there are a lot
fewer buttons and the infotainment system is much more intuitive. The
typical driver will not be going off road for the most part, but it is nice
to know they can. Those capabilities are at your fingertips when driving
the 2013 Range Rover.
Under the hood lives a 5.0 liter V-8 engine pushing 375 horsepower and 375 lb-ft. of
torque through an 8-speed automatic. Step up to the Supercharged models and
power jumps to 510 horsepower and 461 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy is 14 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway. Land
Rover has also improved the stability and braking dynamics of this Range
Rover. In fact everything about this luxury SUV is all new but the most
exciting fact is that the weight has been reduced by 700 pounds. Because of
this you will be getting better fuel economy and better performance.
The Terrain Response System is an all new system for the Range Rover and
has several modes of operation. You can choose between a Snow/Gravel
setting, a Mud and Ruts setting, a Sand setting, and the most aggressive
off-road setting is the Rock Crawl Mode. There is no question the 2013
Range Rover is one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced
SUVs on the market.
There are 4 different trims levels when it comes to the 2013 Land Rover
Range Rover. Choose from the Base model, the HSE model, the Supercharged
model, and the Autobiography model. The latter model swaps out the seating
for 5 and replaces the rear bench seat with 2 Captain's Chairs for maximum
comfort. The Autobiography model is the most luxurious SUV you can buy.
Land Rover has really done a great job with this model. The 2013 Range
Rover is just a brilliant vehicle. If you can afford this luxury SUV do
yourself a favor and go buy one.

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.
