Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Load up an MKX and you'll be over $60,000 before you know it, but this under-the-radar crossover largely feels worth the dough—if you take the time to seek it out.
The 2017 Lincoln MKX is a mid-size crossover capable of seating five passengers in leather-lined comfort.

Pros
Handsome, reserved styling
Strong V-6 engines
Plush inside with a high degree of customizability
Comfortable suspension and good handling

Cons
No hybrid for the lineup
Gimmicky push-button shifter
Lincoln brand lacks full luxury cachet
AWD fuel economy is so-so

The 2017 Lincoln MKX ranks 14 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The mid-ranked 2017 Lincoln MKX is worth considering if you're seeking upscale accommodations for the family without a hefty price tag. The MKX offers outstanding safety scores and just as many features as other luxury midsize SUVs, though its fuel economy trails the majority of the class.

Pros
Potent twin-turbo V6 option
Outstanding safety scores
Budget-friendly for the class

Cons
Subpar fuel economy

By:

The completely redesigned 2017 Lincoln MKX is now a more competitive midsize luxury crossover SUV. Comfortable and well-equipped, it's certainly worth a look.

Pros
Quiet interior with spacious rear seating; comfortable ride quality; a lot of features for the money; strong turbocharged V6 engine option.

Cons
Thick roof pillars and a small rear window impair rearward visibility; a few interior touch points aren't quite up to snuff.

The 2017 Infiniti QX80 ranks 4 out of 8 Luxury Large SUVs. Despite a few weaknesses, the 2017 Infiniti QX80's strong performance, low base price, and elegant, well-equipped interior should meet your needs. However, it has the same disadvantage as most large SUVs: a cramped third row. Many of its rivals also use less fuel.

Pros
Large cargo area
Easy-to-use infotainment system
High-quality interior
Exciting acceleration

Cons
Cramped third row
Poor fuel economy

By:

The 2017 Infiniti QX80's handling and fuel economy suffer for its size and weight, but it combines power, seating for eight, and towing capability in a luxurious package.
The Infiniti QX80 is full-size traditional body-on-frame SUV that competes at the high end of the market. Formerly known as the QX56, the QX80's mechanicals might no longer be in vogue. All three models—QX80, QX80 AWD, and QX80 Limited—offer seating for up to eight and big V-8 power. A top rival for the Cadillac Escalade, the QX80 is the best Infiniti SUV to date and is superior to at least a few of its competitors.

Pros
An upscale cabin
Tough off-roading ability
A genuine SUV
Strong powertrain performance

Cons
Finger-light steering
Very thirsty
Oversize front end a turnoff to some
Gaudy fender vents

For some shoppers, a minivan just doesn't have the right capabilities. Even large, crossover-based SUVs won't do the trick. That's where hulking three-row, luxury vehicles such as the 2017 Infiniti QX80 come into play. With real towing power, high-quality interior appointments and a big-SUV attitude, the QX80 can shuttle your whole crew, and it can do it with style.Trailer sway control is now standard across the lineup. In-car Wi-Fi is now part of the optional Theater Package.

Pros
Well-trimmed cabin that looks and feels truly luxurious
Powerful V8 delivers strong acceleration and a high tow rating
Tightly controlled handling that makes it feel smaller from behind the wheel

Cons
Third-row seat is a tight fit for adults
Ride quality gets choppy with optional 22-inch wheels
