If you like them big, powerful and fully capable, check out these Best Large AWD SUVs with 3rd Row:

  • Audi Q7Reviewers say the Audi Q7 has everything you’d come to expect from a German-engineered large crossover 3luxury SUV: excellent build quality, powerful stance, and strong performance. Of course, as with all Audi models, Q7 features standard AWD, and all engines come with a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control. There’s seating for seven in three rows, although the 3rd row can get a little cramped. Both second and third rows fold flat for 72.5 cubic feet of storage space. Properly equipped, Q7 can tow 6,600 pounds. Consumer Guide remarks: “Recognizing that vehicles in this class are more about coddling style-conscious occupants than carrying cargo, the Q7 fits the premium-large-SUV bill nicely…Overall, Q7 earns our Recommended nod for mechanical finesse, terrific all-weather road manners, and the fuel-frugal diesel option.”
  • Cadillac EscaladeConsumers looking for a large luxury SUV with AWD and up to 8-passenger seating in three rows should check out the 2010 Cadillac Escalade. It’s powered by a 403-hp 6.2-liter V8 engine mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift feature. Although it’s a large SUV, the AWD model can go from 0 to 60 in about 7.5 seconds – pretty impressive for a vehicle of this size. Cargo capacity is similarly impressive. Remove the 3rd row and fold down the second and wind up with a cavernous 108.9 cubic feet.  Car and Driver opines: “Cadillac’s full-size luxury sport utility continues to impress with its strong V8, extroverted appearance, and posh interior. This old-fashioned body-on-frame SUV is very capable and can tow up to 8,300 pounds, but the tradeoff is ride quality that can get quite sloppy.”
  • Mercedes-Benz GL-ClassWith full-time 4Matic AWD, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GL450 luxury large crossover SUV delivers on all fronts: car-like ride, comfortably and luxuriously appointed, superb fit and finish, power fold-flat third row, choice of two powerful V8 engines or fuel-efficient diesel-powered turbocharged V6, and, of course, the prestige of the Mercedes-Benz brand. Seating for seven includes comfortable and spacious accommodations for two adults in the third row. Edmunds comments: “Full-size luxury SUVs might be the official vehicle of 24-inch wheels and subwoofers the size of garbage cans, but plenty of folks are simply looking for a plush interior with room for seven, a powerful engine, and a prestige brand image. For them, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class delivers on all counts, yet it also manages to stick out in this ostentatious segment by actually having meticulous engineering and refinement, too.”
