PostHeaderIcon 10 Best 3-Row SUVs of 2018

SUVs rose to popularity in the early 2000s, with customers being drawn to their large cabins, higher ride height, and perceived safety. The fact that automakers scored bigger profit margins from them also contributed to the surge. Starting in 2015, sales of SUVs started dominating the auto industry, and carmakers began building them in all shapes and sizes. But, while you can buy everything from compacts to full-size vehicles with taller ride height, three-row SUVs are limited to only midsize and large SUVs.

It’s obviously a matter of practicality here. And, while most haulers aren’t exactly practical, three-row vehicles retain one of the most important features of original SUVs: the ability to carry more than five people. With minivans almost extinct, the three-row SUV is arguably the most practical of its kind. With that in mind, we’re going to take a look at the ten best three-row SUVs you can buy today and compare what they offer in terms of features, power, and third-row practicality.

PostHeaderIcon Towing Capacity: 7 SUVs From 2016 that Can Tow the Most

When it comes to choosing an SUV, there are a number of different factors to consider. We often talk about power, performance, fuel economy, and design like they matter the most, and while it can be argued that they do, items like towing capacity, cargo space, and payload capacity are just as important as any of them. from 2016 that offer the best of these worlds. You might be surprised at what we found out.

PostHeaderIcon 6 American SUVs That Still Feature Body-on-Frame Construction

There once was a time when body-on-frame SUVs were common sights. But with the advent of unibody car-based bodies, we don’t see too many of the old body-on-frame SUVs anymore. There are still some SUVs in the market whose bodies and frames are two separate entities, so it’s not like you’re absent of any choices if this is the kind of SUV you want. The Cadillac Escalade, Jeep Wrangler, GMC Yukon, Ford Expedition, Chevrolet Tahoe, and Chevrolet Suburban are still considered body-on-frame SUVs, making them extremely useful in the outdoors. So what exactly do these six SUVs have to offer? Read on and find out.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Tahoe Custom

The venerable Chevy Tahoe used to be the go-to family hauler for middle-class folks. These days, though, prices of this body-on-frame, V-8-powered SUV have skyrocketed beyond what most families are willing to pay. And with the proliferation of crossovers like the Equinox and Traverse, it’s no wonder Chevy pushed the Tahoe up-market. Thankfully, Chevy is offering a solution: the Custom trim package.

Like on the Silverado pickup, the Custom trim takes a low-spec vehicle and adds exterior flash matched with the most important interior upgrades modern car buyers can’t seem to live without. For 2018, the Chevy Tahoe Custom starts at $44,995 – a full $3,515 less than the absolute base Tahoe LS. Chevy’s marketing director, Sandor Piszar, said, “The Tahoe Custom is a response to strong customer demand for Tahoe, as well as the full-size SUV segment moving upmarket. In the past five years, the average transaction price for the segment has climbed fueled by customer appetite for features like heated and cooled seats, adaptive cruise control and a head-up display. This created an unmet need in the marketplace for customers who want the cargo and towing capability of a full-size SUV to go camping, boating or off-roading but don’t necessarily want all of the option content offered on a Tahoe Premier.”

So what’s the difference between the Tahoe LS and the new Tahoe Custom? Let’s explore that below.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Tahoe Midnight Edition

Although not as iconic and long-running as the Suburban, the Chevrolet Tahoe has been one of the company’s most important nameplates in the U.S. ever since it replaced the K5 Blazer in 1992. In its fourth-generation since 2014, the Tahoe shares its underpinning s with the Suburban, Silverado, and Cadillac Escalade, just to name a few, and sports a fresh exterior design, a more modern interior, and Chevy’s latest infotainment system. Under the hood, it comes with a potent 5.3-liter V-8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and either two- or four-wheel drive. Having received mild upgrades for each new model year, the Tahoe gained Chevy’s already familiar Midnight Package for 2017.

Launched alongside the Suburban Midnight Edition, the Tahoe joins the Silverado, Colorado, Equinox, and Trax as a part of the brand’s Midnight Edition family. This special package debuted back in August 2015 on the Colorado pickup truck and quickly expanded to include no fewer than six different nameplates. The reason for that, according to Chevrolet, is that the Midnight Edition is among its fastest-selling special editions. As America’s best-selling full-size SUV, the Tahoe was also in line to to get Midnight Edition upgrade, and it finally happened for the 2017 model year.

The package is pretty much identical to those offered on other nameplates, adding a “murdered-out” look to the SUV. It’s also available on two trim levels in order to satisfy customers looking for either a large and comfortable people hauler or a more off-road-oriented machine.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Launches "OnStar Proactive Alerts" Predictive Technology

Our cars have gotten pretty smart over the last 30 years. Carburetors are long gone, being replaced by computer-controlled fuel injection, and just about every car made comes with a built-in diagnostic system to help pinpoint errors in the event of an unexpected failure. Now, Chevy is looking to make our four-wheeled companions a little bit smarter by introducing the industry’s first predictive technology, dubbed Proactive Alerts.

In short, Chevy has developed a set of algorithms that allow a car’s computer to monitor certain systems and determine if a failure of that system is imminent. If so, Chevy’s OnStar system will alert the owner via e-mail or text message so that maintenance can be performed before a failure actually occurs. For now, the system only monitors the starter motor, fuel pump, and battery, and is currently available on the 2016 Chevy Silverado, Equinox, Corvette, Suburban, and Tahoe. Eventually, the system will be available on all Chevy vehicles and will be able to monitor additional components.

Steve Holland, the Chief Technologist for Vehicle Health Management at GM, said, “Chevrolet is already the most awarded car brand in the industry, and Silverado is the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickup on the road. With Proactive Alerts, we now can offer customers even greater peace-of-mind by taking the guesswork out of when to service their vehicle.”

According to Chevy, the system is even smart enough to know the difference between a battery in a low state of charge and a high electric resistance – something that could point to a failing battery. Proactive Alerts is available with all OnStar plans, including the five-year basic plan that comes standard with new Chevy vehicles.

PostHeaderIcon Deep Dive: General Motors' G80 Locking Rear Differential

General Motors has been offering an automatic locking rear differential in its Chevy and GMC trucks for more than 40 years. Today, its prevalence has grown to include every body-on-frame, rear-drive vehicle in GM’s lineup – from the Colorado WT up through the leather-lined Cadillac Escalade. And thanks to its order code, most folks know the mechanical locker as the Eaton G80. Here’s how it works.

PostHeaderIcon I Tortured Cooper Winter Tires

I am testing a set of winter tires from Cooper Tire to see how much benefit a driver in the snow belt will receive, and so far I have learned a lot. With lots of ice, slush and just plain freezing temps on clear roads, I have discovered why winter tires are a smart purchase. That said, I really can’t give a full review of these tires unless I get a chance to test them in real heavy winter conditions. As it happens, Cooper was holding a winter-tire testing event in Canada, and our tires were on the list of included products.

I asked if I could follow the team up to Canada to give the tires a good flogging on ice and snow, and they were more than happy to oblige. As a bonus I got a chance to test out a new all-season tire that is supposed to be nearly as good as winter rubber in the snow, I was able to test a more performance-oriented SUV winter tire, and I even learned how to drift a BMW on ice. If you remember the mayhem that happened the last time I got to be a tire tester, well, it happened again. This time we killed a Jeep though, not a Corvette.
