Midsize SUVs



Honorable Mentions

  • (WIP) Cadillac XT6 – 2020 to Current
  • (WIP) GMC Acadia – 2017 to Current
  • Kia Telluride – 2020 to Current
    The Telluride is stylish and a great value, and it’s clear that Kia spent money where it matters. However, you’ll have to deal with Kia build quality, sales, and service. If you want a new one, be prepared for big markups over MSRP too. The Hyundai Palisade is basically the same car, but far more ugly (though as a result, not subject to the same markups).
  • Lexus RX (AL20) – 2016 to 2022
    The last-gen RX may have been competitive in 2016, but it’s outclassed by newer rivals in the luxury department and it’s woefully small unless you get the long-wheelbase version. With how reliable the RX is, it’s best to buy one that has depreciated for a few years.
  • Toyota Highlander (XU70) – 2020 to Current
    The Highlander is reliable and can be had with a relatively premium interior on its upper trims, but it’s a snooze to drive.


  • Mitsubishi Outlander (GM) – 2022 to Current
    The Outlander is built cheaply and has a time bomb of a transmission.
  • Nissan Murano (Z52) – 2015 to Current
    The Murano is an old design paired with Nissan’s infamously failure-prone CVT. Don’t go near it.
