The line between luxury and affordability has blurred somewhat over the years, as luxury features migrate to non-luxury models. Not so long ago, features like power windows and door locks, dual-zone climate control and rearview cameras were considered luxury features, not even available on affordable models as options. For the purposes of this ranking, an SUV needed to be classified as "Large" by the EPA, and be available in a trim level that starts under $50,000 for the 2013 model year.
Today, affordable SUVs come with a wide range of standard features and available options. If you need a full-size SUV, but don't want to spend luxury SUV dollars, an affordable SUV may be just the ticket.
We've evaluated the latest generation of full-size SUVs, and have come up with this list of the Best Affordable Large SUVs.
