Chevrolet Suburban is the largest I think and Denali is another version of it. Ford Excrusion was the biggest I think, but was discontinued and currently an extended version of Expedition called Expedition EL is sold as competitor to Suburban.

Is Cadillac Escalade not the biggest SUV? That also is a mammoth and a favorite for Hollywood FBI/CIA agents apart from GMC trucks

Wow...nice catch buddy

I remember when I landed in US few years back, saw Avalanche in the parking lot of the hotel where I stayed. I started checking the m/c like a school kid then the owner came out and stared at me suspiciously. To clear his doubt had a brief chat with him, he took me for a short drive... man this m/c is huge...

But my personal favourite is an ESCALADE

The biggest SUVs right now in the market is the Chevy Subarban 2500 and the Cadillac Escalade ESV and Ford Expedition EL which was launched to replace the Excursion.

Yeah, you are right on.... My uncle previously owned a suburban (older model) which he's now replaced with the Esclade ESV...both are comparable in size... but out of those you mention the Expedition is the biggest. That thing is a beast! Never been inside of one but feels like no less than a semi when you're up against one on the road!

You got to be joking. It looked like the real thing in person, interiors included. Heavy foot makes a compelling point on the Kuwait number plates too. This Avalanche is an original.

A friend spotted the Avalanche at the Red Bull Speed link! It was at the parking lot behind the paddock.
