Best SUVs of 2023 and 2024
If it seems like most vehicles in traffic today look like a stick of butter, it’s because … well … they sort of do. Last year SUVs commanded an overwhelming majority of new car sales. Just as they did the year before. And the year before that. And as time goes by, these machines are due to continue dominating the automotive landscape, vacuuming up customers left behind from discontinued sedans and hatchbacks. To cover every nook and cranny of consumer interest, from small baskets to big boxes, automakers continue to diversify the range of SUVs in their lineup, offering models that cater to the frugal-minded among us, the most performance-focused buyers, and every consumer in between. As a result, the competition is forcing changes to these types of vehicles. The dull crossovers and SUVs of yesterday still exist, but there are also a number of delightfully engaging alternatives, as well.
Finding the best option in a field this large is a lot to chew through. We’ve split the more than 200 new crossovers and SUVs for sale today across 13 segments to find the ones that dare to be good. Our editors have put every SUV sold today through our
comprehensive testing regimen to filter out the pretenders. We’ve driven them all to decide which ones deserve a spot on our 2023 Editor’s Choice list, not to mention naming a few of the very best of these vehicles to our 10Best Trucks and SUVs of 2023.
