Sport utility vehicles are some of the most popular vehicles on the road. The main reason for this is their versatility. SUVs can pull trailers, transport several passengers or a lot of cargo, and drive off road as well as on, all for an affordable price. Many families prefer SUVs, especially because they can handle many passengers and are good for family vacations. Read below about some of the 2014 SUVs that are debuting. One of them could be the right fit for you!
The Chevy Traverse is designed to combine the features of a car—like responsive handling and a smooth ride—with the versatility and overall structure of a SUV. The Traverse has three different trim levels: LS, LT, and LTZ. The LT version is further divided up into 1LT and 2LT. The LS is the least expensive model. Although it is the least expensive, it still has modern technology, including a 6.5-inch touchscreen display, a rearview camera, and plenty of other accessories. Stepping up to the LT or the LTZ will provide a driver with bigger wheels, more electronics, and better safety sensors and alerts.
The Ford Explorer has been around since the early 1990s. Since then, Ford has spent plenty of time improving one of their most popular SUVs. The new Explorer is offered in four different trim packages: Base, XLT, Limited, and Sport. While the engine and MPG change only slightly between packages, the technology and interior do change significantly. All models feature all-wheel drive and stability control, as well as third row seats and side airbags. The 2014 Explorer has a smaller cabin than some other models, but it makes up for it through its advanced features and electronics.
For the 2014 Pathfinder, Nissan decided to take what they had with the 2013 model, add a few more trims of the vehicle, and improve on it overall. The Pathfinder S is the basic trim. There is also the Pathfinder SV and the top of the line Pathfinder SL. The new Pathfinder, no matter what trim option, is designed more for family use and has less of a rugged off-road design. Each different trim option has the same engine, but as you step up in trim options, you will encounter additional features. The SV has all of the features that the S has plus roof rails, rearview monitor, hands-free phone system, and Nissan Intelligent Key®. The SL has all of the SV’s features plus fog lights, power liftgate, remote engine start system, and leather appointed seats.
The 2014 CX-9 is a much sportier SUV than some of the other models out there for 2014. The CX-9 has the nimble handling of a car, and the 273-hp engine gives the vehicle plenty of power. The sportier nature of the CX-9 makes it feel smaller than it actually is. It will comfortably fit just as many passengers as other full sized SUVs, but it looks smaller on the outside and drives as if it were smaller. The interior features modern technology with a 5.8-inch touch screen with voice recognition and modern crash protection and blind spot alerts.
