Best for big families
Chevrolet Tahoe

Base price range: $31,000 to $43,000
Typical five-year ownership cost: $51,000

Above-average retained value and good fuel economy for its considerable size make this the best buy among the biggest SUVs. At 20 mpg on the highway, it drinks more like a mid-size utility. And you'd be surprised just how pleasant it can be to drive something this large: The Tahoe's well-controlled ride and responsive steering almost make you forget there's a real truck underneath.
