Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV) have come a long way from being off-roading vehicles to the present day luxurious rides that symbolize class and status. To address the increasing demand of comfortable and luxurious SUVs, auto manufacturers are coming up with some spectacular vehicles. In addition to powerful engines and 4WD drive, SUVs, today, also feature various state-of-the-art features. That said, these features come at a price and not everyone can shell out that kind of money. In such a case, pre-owned, salvage, wrecked, and repairable SUVs available at online auctions are possible alternatives. To help you make your pick, we list five SUVs worth consideration.
1. Mercedes-Benz GL-Class
Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is the largest luxury crossover SUV, manufactured at Mercedes’ Tuscaloosa, Alabama, plant. It has three rows of seating and ample of cargo space, which means plenty of on-the-road comforts. The 2012 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is readily available in three powertrain options: a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 in the GL350 BlueTEC, 4.6-liter gasoline V8 in the GL450, and 5.5-liter gasoline V8, churning out 210, 335, and 382 horsepower, respectively. Each variant features a 7-speed automatic transmission that offers a stable and fluid drive. The three variants are capable of delivering an impressive combined EPA, between 14 and 19 mpg.
2. Cadillac Escalade Hybrid
Cadillac Escalade is often attributed for fueling the growth of luxury SUVs in the U.S. The vehicle was the first choice of many celebrities in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In 2009 Cadillac came up with a hybrid version of Escalade to keep up with the changing times in the auto industry in the U.S. The Cadillac Escalade Hybrid is powered by a 6.0-liter V8 engine combined with a pair of 60-kilowatt motors within the transmission. The powerful engine and the vehicle’s modern hybrid technology help the car deliver city EPA of 20 mpg.
3. Acura RDX
Acura RDX is among the few SUV that delivers a sporty and comfortable ride with a luxurious feel, despite its compact size. The Japanese auto maker fitted the RDX with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that churns 279 horsepower and promises a powerful drive with appreciable fuel economy. Whether you buy a new or used Acura RDX, you’ll admire the vehicle for its sporty handling, generous cargo capacity, and ergonomic design.

The vehicle packs a 4.6-liter V8 engine under the hood that churns 301 horsepower and is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission for glitch-free rides. The awesome off-roading experience is due to the rugged, live-axle rear suspension, a high-tech adaptive suspension, and four-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing.
