American-made SUVs, or what most people call 4x4s, are some of the best cars out there. They offer excellent performance and maximum comfort while still having a large engine that can tow up to 7500 lbs. Despite their drawbacks, they’re strong as ever and are able to remain competitive with foreign-made SUVs. Their performance is often compared to a German car that costs twice as much but has less technology in it. Multiple top SUV picks for Americans were tested and reviewed, to name a few:
The first SUV on the list is the 2022 Toyota Sequoia. It has a 5.7L V8 engine with 320 hp. It delivers best-in-class towing capacity and fuel economy, with a 16 city/ 22 highway MPG rating. It comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission that is smooth and quiet but lacks shift timing. Its powertrain performs admirably as usual, and its handling is good despite its size.
The Expedition is the best-selling SUV in America; it’s small and comfortable but lacks power and performance. It has a 4.6L V8 engine with 300 hp. The price of the vehicle is average, but you can find some low-mileage used ones that are still in mint condition. The Prius of SUVs, as many call it, is a reliable truck that drives smoothly and quietly; it’s comfortable inside and out. Electronics are up to par with many other SUVs on the market.
Ford offers two SUV choices, one being more powerful than the Expedition, and this is the other one which offers much better performance than its big brother. The Explorer has 290 hp and a 4.6L V8 engine. It is not as comfortable or spacious as the Expedition, but it is faster with better handling and fuel economy. The seating in the back can be a bit cramped for passengers, but it’s more spacious than its two competitors on this list. The leather seats are well-made and high quality; however, the plastic used for the interior panels isn’t as well-made and does give a slightly cheap feel to the vehicle.
This is GMC’s version of an SUV that doesn’t quite stack up to the rest of their line like their full-size truck does but doesn’t fall short by much. It has a 4.8L V8 and 301 hp, which is more than enough for most SUVs out there. The interior is very comfortable and roomy, and the seats do not feel cheap or uncomfortable like other vehicles, although it’s a bit small in comparison to its competitors. This SUV will not let you down when it comes to handling or power since they were two of the best things going for this vehicle.
Tesla Model S
Tesla’s first all-electric car is here to stay the future of all vehicles everywhere. It has an all-electric drivetrain with 201 hp and 0–60 time of 5 seconds, which is just as fast as many high-performance cars on the market. It can go up to 300 miles on one battery charge, which is more than any other SUV on the market. Its handling is excellent despite being a first-generation vehicle, and it has comparable performance to gasoline-powered vehicles. The interior and exterior are modern and clean; it shines, almost literally, and has an integral roof spoiler that you can’t find in any other SUV.

It has great 4wd performance and comfort with its smooth ride. Its 4wd performance is good. The V6 engine gets the job done; however, it is not a powerhouse engine like most other Gasoline V6 SUVs. It has a 3-inch lift kit on it and a suspension lifts front and rear to make it more capable of getting through tough terrain, but it can still get bogged down in some weather and on harder terrain.
