Breathing new life into 7 seater SUVs: Eye-cast for the New Year

Updated on May 25, 2013

This year you will see a new development in the SUV industry as these high capability vehicles will be packed up with more convenient features and modification to give consumers the best experience on enjoying the ride. 7 passenger SUVs built with new modifications have more space for the passengers inside as well as more room for the cargo. The cars will be slightly larger with careful calculations and designs to best suit with the passengers and the cargo. They can haul a family with 6 – 7 members at a time with cargo as well as tow along the tools for camping and holiday like barbecue grill, bike, trailer or a boat.

This article will be listing new 7 seater SUVs that maximize the capability and efficiency of a powerful and robust car, keeping the classy look and elegant interior. Packed up with strong engine, high crash test ratings, fuel economy, safety guarantees and smooth performance, these power-delivery SUVs will surely be a great investment and property.

The one mentioned first in this article would be the 2013 Cadillac Escalade. This one runs with 6.2-liter V8 engine, accompanied by a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The 403 horsepower engine pushes up from zero to 60 mph in only 6.5 seconds. This monstrously powerful 7 seater SUV can haul up to 4 tons of cargo tow if properly equipped. However, the only drawback of Cadillac Escalade is the fuel economy. It runs 14 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. This can be easily explained if you look at the power, engine, torque, suspension and other capability of Cadillac Escalade.

Another 7 seater SUV that will surely satisfy you with high fuel economy coming along with great performance is 2013 Buick Enclave. This modern ride with six-speed automatic transmission is packed up with 3.6-liter V6 engine, slightly less powerful than the Cadillac. Yet this 288 horsepower vehicle accelerates from zero to 60 mph in around 7.3 seconds with smooth driving and sticky handling. Besides, the strength of Buick Enclave lies in its fuel consumption. 22 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. That is the expectation for a good 7 seater SUV of most people.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse pretty much keeps the same engine from the 2012 generation. Traverse runs with 3.6 liter V6 that offers 281 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Traverse has six-speed automatic transmission just like that of other modern 7 seater SUVs. The 2013 Traverse fuel economy is still in the tests and waiting for reports from early customers, yet it is predicted to be similar to that of the 2012 generation, as of 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. It accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 8.6 seconds. Traverse is decent, good-looking and comfortable to drive and handle. Some reports have been about the rear blind spots and parking problems of Traverse, though they are just minor.
