Summer is almost past, and it’s time to get yourself out on the opened road. Planning the perfect summer road trip requires the perfect vehicle for your travelers. In the U.S., we love to have tons of space for our bodies and all of our stuff as we travel.
Go big this summer on your road trip and get a big bad SUV for all your travel needs. Here is a quick overview of some of the most highly rated SUVs in safety, space, and fuel economy.
2018 Ford Navigator
The cargo space and second and third-row legroom in the Ford Navigator is unbeatable. Your family will have no trouble at all in this giant road warrior. The Navigator is built for easy navigation, luxury, accessibility, and more.
There’s a functional option for any mobile devices your family brings along, and plenty of space in the back for a new outfit every day. Stretch out in this spacious road trip master, and spend more time worrying about your next selfie pose.
2022 Toyota Highlander
Categorized as a crossover SUV, the Toyota Highlander (check it out here) is a frontline contender in gas mileage for its class. You’ll save loads driving this spacious vehicle. Basically, you’ll enjoy the fuel economy and the ability to stretch out your legs on that long ride.
This model is available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, as well as with two engine options: a 3.5L V6 or a hybrid powertrain.
2017 Honda CRV
One of the most well-known for reliability, the Honda CRV is a compact SUV crossover with more than enough cargo space. Some of the standard features of the EX model will set you up with heated seats, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a multifunctional rear facing camera, USB charging ports in the front and back seats, and blind spot monitoring.
The fuel economy of the Honda CRV is also nothing to scoff about. You’ll get at least 32 miles per gallon on the highway, and close to 30 in the city. Combine those numbers with the comfortable ride of the CRV, and you’ve got a winner.
2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Again, legroom is no worry in the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The spacious interior of this award-winning Jeep model is unmatched by most in its class. The terrain traction control system in the Cherokee gives drivers the ability to tackle any sort of terrain with confidence.
If you want to mix your travels with a bit of off roading fun, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is the right set of wheels for you. You can even adjust the ride height of the vehicle with five different settings available.
2017 Chevy Tahoe
The Chevy Tahoe will comfortably accommodate up to 7 passengers. Known as one of the most dependable SUVs on the road, the Tahoe is great for long journeys. The Tahoe has adjustable second and third-row seating that can be easily removed for more cargo space.
