The new Jeep Grand Wagoneer is powered by a 6.4-liter Hemi V8, delivering 471 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. That engine, the most powerful in the sub-$100,000 range, sends the power to all four wheels by means of an 8-speed automatic transmission and a standard four-wheel-drive system, making it surprisingly quick.

3. BMW X7 M50i

BMW-X7-M50i-Best-Luxury-3-Row-SUV-for-2022While 3-row SUVs are seldom chosen for their driving dynamics, the BMW X7 M50i offers the most power on our list with legendary interior features, but it does so with the biggest starting price on our list by a sizable margin.

The main advantage of the BMW X7 M50i over the other 3-row SUVs on our list is driving dynamics, and that begins under the hood. The X7 M50i is powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 that delivers 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, making it more powerful than the competitors by a considerable margin.

4. Genesis GV80 3.5T AWD Advanced+

Genesis-GV80-3.5T-AWD-Advanced+-Best-Luxury-3-Row-SUV-for-2022 Like the other Genesis brand vehicles, the GV80 offers premium luxury without a premium price, serving as the least expensive vehicle on our list by a huge margin.

The Genesis GV80 3.5T AWD Advanced+ is powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 that offers 375 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to tow 6,000 pounds. Those are the lowest performance and capabilities numbers on our list, but this Korean SUV still packs more power than many average SUVs.

The Genesis GV80 3.5T AWD Advanced+ doesn’t lead our comparison in any interior measurements, but it is in the upper end of the spectrum in passenger and cargo space. Also, the cabin of this Korean SUV is packed with premium finishes, materials, and technology, creating the luxury feel that you would expect from a high-end 3-row.

As mentioned above, the key attraction for the Genesis GV80 3.5T AWD Advanced+ is the price. Starting just under $70,000, the GV80 3.5T AWD Advanced+ is more than $10,000 less than any other vehicle on our list.

The Takeaway: The Genesis GV80 3.5T AWD Advanced+ is the ultimate 3-row luxury SUV for anyone shopping on a budget.

5. Lexus LX 570

Lexus-LX570-Best-Luxury-3-Row-SUV-for-2022The Lexus LX 570 is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 that delivers 383 horsepower and 403 lb-ft of torque, so it is on the lower end of the power scale for luxury SUVs, but those numbers make the big ute plenty spunky. Those power numbers also allow this vehicle to tow 7,000 pounds, so it will comfortably pull the most common consumer-grade trailers. The LX 570 also has adjustable suspension and drive modes, allowing it to be surprisingly capable off-road.

On the inside, the Lexus LX570 has the smallest passenger compartment, with the least amount of head and legroom at all of the key seating positions. It also has the smallest cargo area, but what it lacks in space it makes up in premium features and build quality.

The Lexus LX570 has a base price starting at $93,275, making it the second-most expensive on our list, trailing only the BMW.

The Takeaway: The Lexus LX570 doesn’t offer the flash and flare of the other luxury 3-row models, instead, relying on its reputation for durability to attract buyers.
