The Lexus GX is a bit of an anomaly in the luxury SUV world. It’s one of the few body-on-frame hold-outs, but is not a full-size offering like the Cadillac Escalade, Infiniti QX80, or even Lexus’ own LX. Based on a platform shared by the Toyota 4Runner, the GX continues to use the older 4.6-liter V8. It may make less power than many modern V6 engines, but it does feature an abundance of low-end torque.
Audi’s compact SUV is a popular choice in the segment. With contemporary good looks, the Q5 meets the needs of plenty of consumers looking for a small luxury SUV. Regular Q5 models have a choice of turbocharged four-cylinder engines – one with a plug-in hybrid and one without.
The BMW X4 is a more stylish version of the compact X3 SUV. With more fastback-like styling, it’s what many consider a SUV Coupe. Power comes from a choice of turbocharged four and six cylinder engines. Those who want the highest levels of performance should look at the X4 M.
Buick’s three-row SUV is stylish, premium, and spacious. But the the best part of the Enclave is how comfortable it is. This SUV is at the top of our list when it comes to long-distance freeway cruisers. It can eat up mile after mile of highway, coddling occupants in complete isolation.
Buick’s new entry level model is not quite a car nor is it an SUV. The Envista is something new and combines the styling of a SUV coupe with the pricing of a premium subcompact sedan. It’s the brand’s new entry level model and looks to appeal to traditional sedan buyers.
The luxury EV SUV segment is a booming market right now and no luxury manufacturer can afford to not be in it. This is where Cadillac has decided to enter the world of electric vehicles with the Lyriq. It’s a stylish SUV that wears the design language we expect to be on most new Cadillacs, or at least the brand’s electric ones.
Chevrolet’s little SUV received a complete overhaul. No longer tall and short, the lower roofline and much longer wheelbase give the latest Trax a more wagon-like profile. It’s only available with front-wheel drive, as this is the least expensive model in Chevrolet’s lineup.
Dodge is reentering the compact SUV market with the all-new Hornet. Using a historic nameplate from its past, the Hornet is a sportier SUV that trades in a bit practicality for personality. It can come with a choice of drivetrains, making either 268 hp or 288 hp.
Genesis is electrifying many of the brand’s popular models and the GV70 is one of the manufacturer’s latest. The all-wheel drive compact SUV ditches the regular gasoline engine options for a dual motor set-up. Output for the Electrified GV70 is listed between 429-483 horsepower depending on trim level.
