www.autobytel.com/new-cars/sport-utility-vehicles/?id=32972 Even though more and more Americans are downsizing to save money, there is still a need for 7 passenger SUVs and Crossovers. Let's take a look at 10 of the best seven seater SUVs in the U.S.A.

10) Lincoln MKT - The Lincoln MKT is a luxury version of the Ford Flex with a total cargo area of over 70 cubic feet. The engine that powers the MKT is 3.7 liter V-6 but there is also a 3.5 liter ecoboost V-6 engine option. The Lincoln MKT can be had with AWD too. But what really makes the MKT stand out from the crown of seven seater SUVs is its unique styling featuring a massive front grille.

9) Buick Enclave -- The Buick Enclave is a worth advisory for some of the 7 Passenger Luxury SUVs like the Acura MDX. The 3.6 liter direct injection V-6 is a proven commodity having over 280 horsepower plus the ability to tow 4500 lbs. Where this seven passenger SUV really shines is the interior. The Enclave is comprised of high quality materials and top notch technology which help the Enclave make it to the list of 10 best seven seater SUVs.

8) Subaru Tribeca -- The Tribeca is Subaru's largest vehicle offering boasting AWD and room for 7 passengers. With tons of interior room the Tribeca is not only an effective hauler but it also a capable off-road SUV. The 3.6 liter V-6 makes over 250 horsepower which is enough to get the job done.

7) Acura MDX -- The Acura MDX is one of those vehicles that absolutely nailed its mission statement by being a reliable premium SUV that is built to last. Standard Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive makes this a sure footed seven seater SUV. The 3.7 liter V-6 engine provides plenty of power. The Acura MDX is one of those rare vehicles that owners want to keep forever.

6) Ford Expedition -- The Ford Expedition is a true body-on-frame SUV that can handle 7 or 8 passengers and their gear thanks to 108 cubic feet or storage. This large SUV can also tow over 9000 lbs. The 301 horsepower 5.4 liter V-8 might not be the most cutting edge but its works well when mated to the 6-speed automatic transmission. The Expedition is an old school SUV and you can negotiate deep discounts on this seven seater vehicle.

5) Honda Pilot -- Honda was a little bit late to the SUV game with the Pilot but they have quickly emerged as a measuring stick for other brands. The 250 horsepower 3.5 liter V-6 engine is the smallest in the group but it does feature cylinder deactivation to help save fuel. Perhaps the greatest attribute of this 7 passenger SUV is that it's very easy to drive for its size. Honda understands how these SUVs are being used so they made this one of the best on the market for families.

4) Infiniti JX -- When Infiniti launched the 7 passenger JX crossover, their #1 objective was to give shoppers a viable alternative to the Acura MDX. Early sales success indicates they have a winner on their hands. The aggressive styling, cutting edge entertainment, and trick motorized second row make the JX one great choice as the best seven seater SUVs. The Infiniti JX is built for comfort and the CVT trans eliminates shifting so that the 3.5 liter V-6 engine keeps all 265 horses running smoothly.

3) Mazda CX-9 -- The Mazda CX-9 has remained relatively unchanged since its debut back in 2007. Although this seven seater SUV is one of the oldest, it still represents a great value. The 3.7 liter V-6 makes 273 horsepower and is mated to a 6-speed automatic. What the CX-9 may lack in flash more than makes up in the areas of reliability and overall value. Mazda may be known more for their Zoom Zoom cars but they can also make some great family automobiles that can transport up to 7 people.

2) Nissan Armada -- When Nissan launched the Armada, the intention was to put a dent in Suburban and Expedition sales by providing a full-sized truck based vehicle with Japanese engineering. The Armada's 5.7 liter V-8 engine is more than capable of carrying 7 passengers, their luggage, and a towing a larger object weighing over 9000 lbs. While there are many 7 seater SUVs and crossovers out there, few can transport them as comfortably as the Armada.

1) Chevrolet Suburban -- At the top of the Autobytel best seven passenger car list is the Chevy Suburban. This is one of the longest running nameplates in the automotive world spanning many decades. There is a reason for this; the Suburban can carry 7 or 8 passengers, all their gear, and more with a very comfortable ride.

      Sequoia is a true SUV!!! Sequoia is the best SUV money can buy, because it's the most reliable and people will never have an issue with turbos because there's none, and people will never have carbon build up because it doesn't have direct injection like competitors. It's not rice burner with turbo. It's not a Prius with Auto start/stop. It's not a iPhone on wheels that needs to reset by the dealer every 6 months and replaced every couple years because of the issues. It's reliable SUV that can go 500k miles without touching engine or transmission. Also, it's simple, reliable, comfortable and holds it's value better than any other SUV. Great on gas for its size. I have one and love it.
