As it has done for decades, each year J.D. Power takes the pulse of thousands of verified family SUV owners in order to learn how they feel about their vehicles. And we use the word "feel" advisedly because the annual J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study measures vehicle owners' emotional attachment to their vehicles.
Consumer responses are aggregated to compute an overall APEAL index score measured on a 1,000-point scale. The higher the index score, the better the model is in terms of overall appeal.
In this article, you'll find the 11 highest-rated 2021 family SUVs for appeal according to their owners. The list of the top-rated 2021 model-year Family SUVs includes Midsize SUVs, Upper Midsize SUVs (typically 3-row models), and Large SUVs. The vehicles are listed in ascending order by index score, so you'll find the most appealing family SUV at the end of the list.
