    Pick The 2020 Motor Trend SUV Of The Year

    Motor Trend
    October 16, 2020

    As automakers walk away from sedans as family transportation, it seems ever more categories and niches are being created for the now-omnipresent SUV. Across these multiple sizes, shapes, and price points, we tested the latest models at the 2021 MotorTrend SUV of the Year competition—thoroughly evaluating nearly 30 vehicles in all, with the group ranging from rugged trail climbers and mall-crawling soft-roaders to the fastest zero-to-Montessori rides in the carpool lane. Below, you'll find our top six finalists for 2021 MotorTrend SUV of the Year plus every other contender for the award. Be sure to check back Monday, October 19, when we reveal the 2021 SUV of the Year!
    2021 MotorTrend SUV of the Year Finalists

    • Cadillac Escalade | The Boss Is Back
    • Genesis GV80 | Seriously Impressive
    • Land Rover Defender | Great Anywhere
    • Kia Seltos | Mini Telluride
    • Nissan Rogue | Way, Way Better
    • Toyota Venza | Lexus Lite

    I agree with that, Genesis keeps hitting home runs and the GV80 being their first SUV will no doubt continue that.

    I actually think the Escalade could win this. Motor trends biggest issue with the gv80 is the ride.

    "On a mainstream subcompact, it'd just be considered bad," Seabaugh said. "On a $72,000 luxury SUV, it's atrocious."

    They will give it to the Escalade.. since it represents both the Tahoe and Yukon in addition to itself, plus they do like GM’s marketing dollars..and in America, it’s a more significant product than the rest

    I'm rooting for Cadillac for the win this year. Next year it will be the Bronco though.

    Saying "The Boss is Back" points to the winner. The finalist list is mostly bs

    My money is on the Escalade. Isn't part of their criteria "bringing something new to the segment" part of the criteria? The Genesis seems like its main selling point is value, not sure if "value" is bringing something new. However, while not earth shattering, the Escalade does bring that spiffy new oLED screen. Otherwise I can't comment on how good the Escalade is as we've not seen any reviews yet. Based off of the Tahoe/Yukon I do expect good things.... I have my fingers crossed for GM!

    Was going to say GV80 as Genesis is a media darling right now (and deserving of the praise), but after reading about the ride I'll say Escalade. Simply inexcusable to have a atrocious ride on a 72K vehicle.
