10 Best Used 3-Row SUVs Under $10,000


With seating for the entire family, a 3-row SUV can offer an appealing blend of utility, comfort, and practicality.

While there’s definitely an SUV premium in today’s market, you can still find some great 3-row models for $10,000 or less if you look hard enough. We’ve done some of the legwork for you, so have a look at our list of 10 of the best 3-row SUVs for under $10,000.

1. 2008-2011 Buick Enclave

2011 Buick Enclave

This upscale sibling to the Chevrolet Traverse has a refined, high-quality interior and plenty of sound deadening to go with its comparatively baroque styling. It’s an upscale choice available at a reasonable price. See Buick Enclave models for sale

2. 2002-2006 Chevrolet Tahoe

2006 Chevrolet Tahoe

You may have to look for an older model than many other vehicles on this list, but drivers who need heavy-hauling ability will be pleased with the Chevrolet Tahoe’s impressive towing rating and its strong V8 engine lineup. See Chevrolet Tahoe models for sale

3. 2002-2006 Chevrolet Suburban

2006 Chevrolet Suburban

Take everything we like about the Tahoe and stretch it by the better part of two feet, with a good bit of that extra space dedicated to second- and third-row passenger room, and even more allocated to expanding its cargo utility. There you have the Chevrolet Suburban. See Chevrolet Suburban models for sale

4. 2009-2012 Chevrolet Traverse

2012 Chevrolet Traverse Front Left in Red

One of our favorite crossover SUVs offers carlike driving comfort, a smooth ride, and an exceptionally spacious cabin. The Chevrolet Traverse has plenty of room in all three rows and a relatively frugal V6 engine. See Chevrolet Traverse models for sale

5. 2002-2006 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL

2006 GMC Yukon

This slightly more upscale sibling to the Chevrolet Tahoe and larger Suburban is mechanically and physically identical aside from the availability of a swanky, range-topping Yukon Denali trim level. The Yukon XL is the longer of the two, with more space for rear-seat passengers and cargo. See GMC Yukon models for sale

6. 2005-2008 Honda Pilot

2008 Honda Pilot

Benefitting from Honda’s exceptional build quality, the Pilot is a 3-row SUV with a classy, upscale feel and an impressive reputation for durability. It may not be the newest 3-row SUV on the block, but the Pilot is a worthwhile choice. See Honda Pilot models for sale

7. 2011-2013 Kia Sorento

2013 Kia Sorento Front Left Side in Red

Offering a hearty V6 engine and a comfortable ride, the Kia Sorento is a solid choice for drivers on a budget.

8. 2009-2013 Mazda CX-9

2013 Mazda CX-9
