  • I drive a 2004 Surburban it has the bucket seats, the middle seating and a third seating I love it as far as alot of space. When ever we go on road trips we use the Surburban it is great on gas as well if you go the speed

    I would love to get a brand new Surburban but atleast this one is paid off so I guess I'll wait.

  • I know it is not a SUV, but my friend got a Ford Explorer. It has three rows.

  • Explorers are SUVs, we have one right now, but ours is only 2 rows. I wonder when they started doing 3rd rows.

  • The Ford Flex has tons of room and captains seats. Kinda cool. I drove one.

  • from what I've seen SUVs only have bench seating in the back 2 rows and captains in the front.

    we did a ton of looking recently before buying my truck. RAV4 has 3rd row option, Pilot, there are lots of them out there right now.

  • Oh I feel like a dumb ass lol I didn't think it fell completely in the category.

    Answer by dakotaNrye at 2:36 PM on Jan. 12, 2010

  • I think a lot of them are available in a two row or three row configuration. We have a Dodge Durango with two rows, but it is also available with three rows. My friend also had an explorer with three rows.

  • Thanks for your suggestions, ladies.

    Don't feel dumb dakota :)

    I'll have to check out the suburban. We have always been a Toyota and Ford family, but I may have to venture out :)

  • we test drove a few larger suv's before buying our honda minivan. we have 4 carseats, so if you are in a similar situation, be sure to bring the carseats along and test them out too!

  • I don't have one but it my dream car. A Mazda Cx-9. It is a crossover. Gets great gas mileage. Has 7 passenger seating, and is only $25,00 I will have one in a couple of years.
