Ford Expedition

The Ford Expedition is an excellent contender for big families who need a spacious and capable SUV. It features an efficient 3.5L EcoBoost engine that pumps out a best-in-class 440 horsepower and 9,2000-lb towing capacity - more than enough chops to tow your toys or an RV. It’s also fully loaded with all of Ford’s best connectivity and safety features, including tech that will keep the kids entertained in the back while you sit comfortably up front enjoying the ride. With seating for up to 8, the Expedition can easily fit 3 car seats across the rear with enough room for Grammy, Grampy, and the family dog. All aboard!


Buick Envision

Much like the Cavender car-buying experience, the Buick Envision inspires confidence in Texas drivers. It has an impressive suite of driver-assist technologies, giving you peace of mind as you shuttle the kids from A to B. We also love the Buick Remote Access Plan, which provides helpful insights into the health of your vehicle, allows you to send pre-plotted trips to the built-in navigation system, and locate your vehicle in a jam-packed Costco parking lot. With a fun-to-drive Turbo engine, a fold-flat third row that opens up loads of cargo space, and a beautifully designed cockpit (including an optional massaging driver’s seat!), the Buick Envision puts family-focused comfort and convenience first.


Chevrolet Suburban

You’d be hard-pressed to name a more legendary large-family vehicle than the Chevy Suburban! If you’re looking for space, dependable capabilities, and good looks that will stand out on Texas highways, this 3-row SUV is perfect. It boasts best-in-class cargo space and second-row legroom, an easy-access rear 5th door for loading/unloading, and a suite of technology features that will impress and satisfy everyone on board. Welcome to the big league!

Fun Fact: The Chevy Suburban was named Best Large SUV for Families by U.S. News & World Report two years in a row.


Land Rover Range Rover

Land Rover Range Rover SUV

For families with a zest for adventure, you’ll want to get behind the wheel of a Land Rover. The Range Rover is the flagship SUV of the Land Rover lineup, but there are many sub-models under the Range Rover umbrella, including the Range Rover Hybrid, Range Rover Sport, and Range Rover Velar. Each model is equipped with features, and a price tag, that will appeal to different types of families, but the core specs of what makes the Range Rover so great remain the same across the board: unbeatable off-roading capabilities, an iconic design, and brag-worthy luxury.


Nissan Rogue

No family SUV list is complete without a nod to Nissan, which is well-known for making some of the most value-packed and affordable cars, crossovers, and SUVs on the market. The Nissan Rogue is a jack-of-all-trades, combining just about everything you need from a vehicle into a sleek, comfortable, and ready-to-go package. From long road trips across the USA to frenzied Saturday mornings trying to make it to soccer practice, the Rogue responds to your family’s every need. It’s designed with a wider rear than other midsize SUVs on the market to more easily accommodate car seats and kiddos, and endless optional features allow you to easily design the perfect car to fit your lifestyle and budget.
