Proudly made by the hardworking members of the United Auto Workers (UAW), these SUVs deliver on style and performance, while still remaining affordable for the average consumer. And remember, every purchase of American and union-made automobiles helps support good middle class jobs at home!

1. Ford Escape

The #1 bestselling SUV of 2013, the Ford Escape offers a lot of bang for the buck at its affordable price.

The 2013 model has departed from its previous boxy design, replacing it with an attractive and more curvy look. And it’s also one of the most technologically advanced SUVs with its Ford Sync voice-activation system and the MyFord Touch, which has even faster reaction times on the 8-inch touch-screen.

And unlike SUVs of the past, the Escape scores great on gas mileage, getting 21-23 mpg in the city and 28-33 mpg on the highway.

If you’re looking for an all-around great SUV, make sure to give the Escape a test drive and see for yourself why it is the #1 bestselling SUV on the market today.

Wrangler owners are a proud group. And for good reason: Jeep consistently produces a SUV that is great for both city and off-road driving, while delivering on style and features.

Produced in Toledo, the 2013 Wrangler represents the pinnacle in the evolution of the Wrangler series. Its 285-horsepower engine provides the power to get you where you want to go and its 17 city/21 highway mpg rating allows you to do so without spending a small fortune on gas.

The Wrangler also offers great options such as new leather-trimmed heated front seats, illuminated cup holders, and a new auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated LED map lights.

And you get the latest in technology with the Uconnect 430N System which has entertainment features, phone, web, GPS, and Uconnect Voice Command.
With so much to offer, the Wrangler is a definite must test-drive for anyone looking for a powerful and fun SUV.

3. Chevrolet Tahoe HybridChevrolet-Tahoe-Hybrid-1213

The world’s first full-size hybrid SUV, the Tahoe does what many thought was not possible: deliver a big experience without leaving a huge footprint on the economy or at the gas pump.

The eight-passenger Tahoe offers 332 horsepower, 367 lb.-ft. of torque and up to 6,200 lbs. of towing capability, while getting 20 city/23 highway miles per gallon.

And it’s big on comfort, with a luxurious interior offering eight leather bucket seats and power-adjustable heated front bucket seats.

Technology-wise, the Tahoe provides all the bells and whistles, from Bluetooth connectivity to a rear vision camera to SiriusXM NavTraffic.

If you love a big SUV, then make sure to check out the Tahoe on your test drives. It’s in a class by itself and proudly shows off the quality and craftsmanship of union-made cars.
