Full-size SUVs are popular as hell, and with good reason: they’re one of the most versatile family cars money can buy. Thing is, though, that it takes an awful lot of said money to bring one home new, especially if you want all the features that make these largely-truck-based monsters as capable as comfortable as you want; even an entry-level Ford Expedition XLT can be hard to snag for less than $60,000 once you add on four-wheel-drive, the towing package and the upgraded interior.
Luckily, there’s a way around that: buy a lightly used version. And even more luckily, the folks over at Consumer Reports have just put together a list of the most reliable three-year-old full-size SUVs you can find in used car lots today.
As Trucks.com revealed, CR chose to study vehicles from the 2017 model year as they would be new enough to still offer many modern safety features, like blind-spot warning and automatic emergency braking, yet would have been around long enough for many major issues to begin to arise. To collect all the data, CR surveyed the owners of more than 420,000 vehicles to find out what worked well and what didn’t over the course of ownership — and came up with the following list of the most reliable rides from that year, which we’ve listed below.
2017 Chevrolet Tahoe
2017 GMC Yukon
2017 Buick Enclave
2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class
2017 Lexus LX 570
