Full-size SUVs remain a favorite among American drivers, loved for their capability, versatility, and performance. Luxury SUVs take the love for SUVs to a new level with exquisite design, top-of-the-line features, and plenty of premium amenities.

The most striking difference between the SUVs is the price tag—but drivers in the market for a Mercedes-Benz will not find this surprising.

Both SUVs offer ample cargo room and a matched 7,000-pound towing capacity.
