The Aviator is a savvy rival for pricey mid-size Euro-brand SUVs, but those utility vehicles have strong allegiance for many reasons.
The Audi Q7 sports three rows of seats, sober styling, and touchscreens in seemingly every direction.
Jaguar’s F-Pace has two rows of seats, a pretty organic shape, and supercharged V-6 power; its I-Pace has 234 stated miles of battery-electric driving range and a striking look, but we’ve measured more like 200 miles of range in everyday driving.
The latest BMW X5 has a very handsome interior and exterior that are backed by an air suspension that’s equally fluent on and off road.
The Benz GLE-Class has a trick suspension, new 6-cylinder engines, and a stylish cockpit—and a stiff upward adjustment on its price tag.
Finally, we’d also look at the Kia Telluride, a luxury SUV in almost every dimension save for its badge.
