This Lincoln has the solid resume of a big bucks luxury SUV – it’s a joy for long travel. MSRP as-tested: $92,020. https://testdrivenow.com/2020-lincoln-navigator-reserve/
2020 Hyundai Palisade Review. Remember the Veracruz? That was Hyundai’s first attempt at an upscale 3-row crossover. And now look how far they’ve come; this is the first-ever 2020 Palisade. Hyundai is going to sell a lot of these. It’s a stellar product at an even better price. MSRP as-tested: $43,205 https://testdrivenow.com/2020-hyundai-palisade/
There’s seemingly nothing the X7 can’t do and do extremely well including parking itself and adjusting the cruise control based on speed limit signs. But the Extended Traffic Jam assistant is as close as the X7 gets to autonomous driving permitting hands-off the wheel, slow, rush hour driving with no driver intervention needed…no Cadillac Super Cruise magic here. Heated and cooled cupholders, heated armrests, soft close doors, etc., etc. etc. I think you get the picture. Other than not having the aforementioned Luxury Seating Package, night vision and rear seat entertainment this X7 contains the full pantry of BMW convenience and safety features. I’ve been in the new Mercedes GLS but have yet to drive it…that being said it would take something beyond spectacular to beat what BMW has delivered here.
The tester BMW has provided is a dream machine replete with nearly every feature the X7 has to offer. So keep in mind that for about $75,000 there’s the X7 xDrive40i with 6-cylinder power. This one however is the 50i and has a fire-breathing twin-turbo V8 and nearly $20 grand in options to arrive at an as-tested price of $112,245. For that amount, every aspect of the X7 experience has been pushed to the limit.
The seven-passenger Atlas offers competitive levels of technology and spaciousness combined with hallmark Volkswagen driving dynamics and attention to detail, all at a price designed to draw attention in the crowded family SUV segment.
As the newest and biggest member of the Volkswagen lineup, the midsize Atlas SUV offers family-ready passenger and cargo volume, as well as everyday usability and utility.
The Telluride still makes a bold presence with a profile that’s not too dissimilar from a Range Rover Velar. This is also the first Kia designed specifically for the U.S. market, so that big, boxy, go anywhere SUV-look is very much in the details. Kia calls it “upscale exploration.” Families on the go will appreciate its spacious cabin that designers promise offers generous hip, shoulder, leg and head room in all 3 rows in what the company says is more luxe living room than utility vehicle.
