If you're looking to haul around your whole family and their stuff, you might be interested in buying a full-size SUV. But many of today's top full-size SUVs can be highly expensive, with price tags stretching into the $50,000 range and sometimes past $60,000 with shipping and options. The solution? Consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) model, which offers a manufacturer-backed warranty and a steep discount from the original price. To show you what we mean, we've listed seven of our favorite full-size certified pre-owned SUVs you can buy today for around $35,000 or less.

2011-2014 Chevrolet Suburban

The Chevrolet Suburban is undoubtedly one of the best full-size SUVs on the market. The reasoning is simple: Not only does it offer a lot of room for virtually any family, but it also touts ample cargo space and difficult-to-match towing and hauling capabilities. While new prices are steep, certified pre-owned models are easy to find with a great deal. There are more than 80 different certified pre-owned 2011-2014 Suburban models currently listed on Autotrader for $35,000 or less, each of which come with 5 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage and an additional 1 year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper protection on top of the original warranty.

2011-2014 Chevrolet Tahoe

If you like the Suburban but you don't like its size or its high price tag, you may want to consider the smaller Tahoe. With more than 200 different certified pre-owned examples on Autotrader for around $35,000 or less, the Tahoe is easier to find within our budget than the Suburban. While the Tahoe can't carry as much stuff as its Suburban stablemate due to a smaller cargo area, the Tahoe still offers an impressively large interior for your family and their accessories. We especially recommend the leather-trimmed LTZ model if you can find one within our budget, as it boasts a navigation system, heated and ventilated front seats, a 10-speaker sound system and more.

2011-2014 Dodge Durango

Although the Dodge Durango is on the small end of the full-size SUV segment, it still offers all the basics, including a large interior, an available 5.7-liter V8 engine under the hood and ample seating for three rows of passengers. We also like its bold look, which goes well with its muscular powertrain. Better yet, the Durango offers very affordable pricing. There are currently more than 600 different certified pre-owned examples listed on Autotrader for under $35,000, each of which are backed by Dodge's 7-year or 100,000-mile CPO powertrain warranty. That means you should have no trouble finding exactly the trim level you're looking for, including our recommendation, the upscale Crew model, which features a remote ignition, Bluetooth phone and audio compatibility, a power lift gate, a push-button starter and more.

2011-2014 Ford Expedition

The Ford Expedition is an excellent full-size SUV boasting a muscular 5.4-liter V8 and two body styles, a standard-length mode that's roughly the size of the Chevy Tahoe and an extended-length version dubbed the Expedition EL. Regardless of which one you choose, you'll find a huge interior and a lot of towing and hauling capabilities. If you opt for a midlevel XLT model, you'll also find modern convenience features such as Ford's SYNC system with Bluetooth, steering-wheel audio controls, satellite radio, parking sensors and more. Most importantly, you should have no trouble finding a certified pre-owned Expedition within our budget, as there are currently nearly 180 listed on Autotrader, all of which feature a 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty and 1 year or 12,000 miles of additional bumper-to-bumper coverage.

2011-2014 Ford Flex

Although the Ford Flex is certainly a full-size SUV in dimensions, it doesn't offer the towing or hauling capabilities of its larger Expedition stablemate. If you don't need to tow or haul, however, you might prefer the Flex, as it touts a more carlike driving experience and more affordable pricing. To that end, there are currently more than 600 different certified pre-owned Flex models on Autotrader for around $35,000 or less, enough to take your pick from a wide range of trim levels. We especially recommend the upscale Limited model, which touts a navigation system, xenon headlights, a power tailgate, a backup camera, leather upholstery and a 12-speaker Sony sound system.

2011-2014 GMC Yukon/Yukon XL

The GMC Yukon is a lot like the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, boasting similar styling, similar interior room, similar powertrains and the same impressive towing and hauling capabilities. Some drivers, however, prefer the Yukon's look and its brand name, and it may even offer a better deal. Right now, there are around 150 different certified pre-owned Yukon models on Autotrader for around $35,000 or less, each of which include 5 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original sale date and 1 year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper protection beyond the original warranty.

2010-2014 Nissan Armada

Although the Nissan Armada is growing increasingly outdated in comparison to rivals listed here, it's still worth mentioning. The main reason is its bulky powertrain, which is especially good for towing. All Armada models use a 320-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 that can pull an impressive 9,100 pounds. The SUV also boasts a large interior, a sturdy, truck-based frame and affordable pricing. There are around 100 different 2010-2014 Armada models currently listed on Autotrader for around $35,000 or less with Nissan's certified pre-owned warranty. Although this warranty doesn't offer additional bumper-to-bumper coverage, its 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection should cover the most costly potential failures.
