With enormous proportions, the boldly styled Telluride is Kia's biggest crossover. Although it's based on the Sorento, the 2020 Telluride is more interesting to look at, with nifty designs for its head- and taillights and a boxy, angular silhouette.

Pros
Excellent Style,
Cavernous interior,
loads of tech.

Cons
Intrusive adaptive cruise,
no upgraded engine option.

The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban ranked #4 in Large SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Suburban has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 22 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Comfortable ride
Spacious, upscale cabin

The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is the ultimate weekend road-trip vehicle ready to haul nine people, their luggage, and even an 8,300 pound trailer. Try that in a crossover.

Pros
Upscale interior
Strong V-8 engine
Superlative towing ability
More fuel efficient than you might think

Cons
High cargo floor
Rides more like a truck than rivals
Expensive at every level
Throwback looks

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Unless you need the Suburban's nine-passenger configuration (which is only available on the base LS model), we recommend going with the midlevel LT trim. It comes with a substantial amount of standard equipment and is a solid pick as is. But we'd suggest getting the Luxury package to add some useful driver safety aids and a power liftgate.

Pros
Seating for up to nine passengers
Cargo capacity is generous
Strong V8 engine can tow and haul plenty of cargo

Cons
Maneuvering in tight spaces is challenging
High cargo floor means more effort to load objects
Lazy gas pedal response makes engine feel weaker than rated
