Which large SUV is the best? That’s the question in a giant SUV square off as the largest used SUVs available are pitted against one another for a “NO-Pavement-Needed” off-road challenge. Be forewarned, this is a multi-episode GO BIG! series of which this is the first episode, but still fun to watch and learn from even if you do not get around to the rest of the series and the final race.

Three SUVs Under $10K

As part of a “No Pavement Needed” GO BIG! series on The Fast Lane Truck YouTube channel, three used large SUVs are turned into the ultimate overlanding rigs (with a budget of $10,000 or less each) to tackle the Moab White Rim Trail in an offroad challenge to see which is the better Big SUV.

In this series, drivers were tasked with finding what they believe to be the best of the largest SUVs of which they chose a 2003 Cadillac Escalade 6L; a 1999 GMC 1500 Suburban 5.7L; and a 2000 Ford Excursion 6.8L with a Triton V-10 engine.

Follow along to find out which SUV proves to the baddest of the bunch and at the same time learn a little something about the pros and cons of each vehicle with an eye toward their faults and what you can expect if you buy one used.

In the video you will see:

• A sponsored recommendation on how to search for the best deal on a used truck
• A 3 SUV “sonic” drag race between the contestants
• An Excursion vs Suburban drag race
• An Excursion vs Cadillac drag race
• Some motorhead hijinks and ribbing
