The 2014 is the oldest of the full-size out there, and it's starting to feel that way, too.
If you're willing to step it down in size, we'd choose the Dodge Durango, with its solid mix of practicality, on- and off-road driving dynamics, and available HEMI engine.
The Toyota Sequoia looks and feels larger than some of the American options, but it's a strong performer.
The mainstays are vehicles like the Chevrolet Tahoe (and the long-wheelbase version, the Suburban) and its twin, the GMC Yukon.
They're still selling well, primarily because of their heritage and because they offer so many variants--long-wheelbase versions, hybrid versions, stripper models and luxurious Denali editions.
We also like Ford's Expedition, which also comes in short- and long-wheelbase versions; it's a little less potent than the biggest GM utes but it has good road manners and great features.
