10 Best Used Large SUVs Under $15,000

Sometimes you need one vehicle that can do it all. A good full-size SUV can carry the whole family and their stuff while towing a boat without breaking a sweat. These are often pretty expensive if you buy them new, but you can get a tremendous discount by shopping on the used market.

Here are the 10 best used large SUVs you can find on Autotrader under $15,000.

1. 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe

The Chevrolet Tahoe is a hugely popular SUV due in no small part to its refinement, versatility, and tech-savvy amenities. It’s a well-rounded full-size SUV that does just about everything well, including impressive handling and fuel economy for its class. Find a Chevrolet Tahoe for sale

2. 2011 GMC Yukon

Mechanically identical to the Chevy Tahoe, the GMC Yukon is a bit classier in its appearance and feature availability. This SUV is aging well and it has the same muscular and surprisingly efficient V8 engine as its Chevy counterpart. Find a GMC Yukon for sale

3. 2011 Chevrolet Suburban

2011 Chevrolet Suburban

The Chevrolet Suburban is very similar to the Chevy Tahoe, but the Suburban is a longer SUV. That means you get a ton of passenger space and cargo space without needing to compromise one or the other. Find a Chevrolet Suburban for sale

4. 2011 GMC Yukon XL

2012 GMC Yukon XL

As you may have figured out by now, every big Chevy SUV has a GMC counterpart. The GMC Yukon XL is essentially the same as the Chevrolet Suburban, but with a different style. Its sophisticated look makes it just as at home at the office as it is at the lake. Find a GMC Yukon XL for sale

5. 2010 Toyota Sequoia

2012 Toyota Sequoia

The Toyota Sequoia is a trusty full-size SUV that hasn’t been updated in a while, which means you can get a used model that’s pretty similar to a new one. It’s comfortable, powerful, and has impressive handling for such a big SUV. Find a Toyota Sequoia for sale

6. 2012 Ford Expedition

2012 Ford Expedition

Available with two different wheelbase lengths, the Ford Expedition is a well-rounded SUV with real truck-like capabilities. Handling is good for a big SUV and interior space is generous making for comfortable road trips. Find a Ford Expedition for sale

7. 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid

The Chevy Tahoe Hybrid brings better fuel economy to this full-size SUV without sacrificing much in terms of capability. It can still tow quite comfortably while returning better fuel economy than a non-hybrid Tahoe, especially in the city. Find a Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid for sale

8. 2012 Nissan Armada

The Nissan Armada isn’t quite as refined as its rivals higher up on this list, but its V8 engine provides excellent towing capacity. It also has an interesting aesthetic that makes it something a little different from more traditional SUVs. Find a Nissan Armada for sale

9. 2010 Jeep Commander

The Jeep Commander is a full-size, three-row SUV with real Jeep personality. Its off-road capabilities are as good as you’d expect when equipped with four-wheel drive, but it suffers from mediocre interior quality and an uncomfortable third row. Find a Jeep Commander for sale

10. 2009 Chrysler Aspen

2009 Chrysler Aspen

You can find a pretty well-appointed Chrysler Aspen at an affordable price. Although it’s feature-rich, interior quality is sub-par and the handling isn’t very athletic. That said, it has the towing capabilities to compete with more mainstream offerings in this segment. Find a Chrysler Aspen for sale
