The Best Used SUVs for Under $20,000

SUVs are all the rage. People love them for their blend of utility, efficiency, and practicality. So, it makes sense that the US market purchases more SUVs than any other vehicle. With so much demand comes a large supply, which translates into a large used market, which, in turn, means low prices.

Like our cheap, used truck buyer’s guide, we pulled from multiple sources to get you the best information. This list was made by consulting places like Consumer Reports, Edmunds, Kelley Blue Book, US News and World Reports, among others.

Crossover SUV:

2014-2018 Mazda CX-5

Mazda has won US News and World Report’s “Best Car Brand” for the past five years (2016-2020). The Mazda CX-5 is one of the reasons why. It’s probably the most drivable SUV on this list, which sports car like performance and handling, but with the utility to match its competitors, like the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4.

Mid-size SUV:

2010-2013 Toyota Highlander

Toyota vehicles are known for their reliability and excellent resale value. While the three-row Highlander models are getting up there in age, they still have many modern convenience features, like rear row climate control. An easy way to find cheaper models is to search for high mileage ones, because, with Toyota, high miles doesn’t equate to broken down.

Full-Size SUV:

2009-2015 Honda Pilot

Known for its spacious interior (read: high seating capacity and LOTS of cargo space), the Honda Pilot is a great choice. Anyone seeking a proper SUV with the performance to match should take a peek. With a standard V6 and 5-speed automatic transmission, the Pilot can haul your family and your camper all at the same time.

Off-Road SUV:

2007-2017 Jeep Wrangler

This probably doesn’t surprise anyone. The JK Wrangler generation lasted for ten years. And with the new generation being equally as popular, there has been an influx of used JK generation models. The Wrangler is as iconic as it is capable. And thankfully, it’s also pretty cheap. If you’ve always wanted one, now is a great time to get your hands on one.
