2012 Toyota Sequoia
2012 Toyota Sequoia

Best large SUV

The 2012 Toyota Sequoia is a reviewer favorite for its heavy-duty truck capabilities, bolstered by a best-in-class driving experience and smart interior packaging. Both available V8 engines are smooth and powerful, and reviews say they're among the best available among large SUVs. Add excellent maximum cargo capacity, flexible and comfortable second- and third-row seating, and a maximum tow capacity of 7,400 pounds, and you've got an excellent all-around package. The 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe (Base MSRP: $38,530 to $55,850) is a close runner-up whose max tow capacity is even higher, but it doesn't have as flexible an interior, and it doesn't match the Sequoia's superior ride quality.

2012 Infiniti QX56

Best large luxury SUV

The 2012 Infiniti QX56 takes the mantle of best-reviewed luxury SUV, surprising reviewers with its on-road comportment, both in terms of ride quality and acceleration. The QX56's powerful 5.6-liter V8 allows for a huge towing capacity of up to 8,500 pounds. The interior of the QX56 is high-quality, very luxurious and offers a wide variety of useful technology features. Cargo capacity is ample but not class-leading, and the third-row seating is tight for adults, but overall reviewers find little to dislike about the QX56, especially considering its relatively low price for its class. Reviewers also like the 2012 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, but it can get much more expensive once you start adding options and packages.
