Chevrolet, GMC, Mercedes-Benz and Ford are some of the best-known makes of nine-seater cars. As of 2015, Chevrolet makes the Tahoe and Suburban, GMC offers the Yukon, Mercedes features the Sprinter, and Ford makes the Transit. These vehicles are all spacious and offer a third row of seating that comfortably fits nine passengers. They can also easily store plenty of cargo while simultaneously boasting relatively decent fuel economy for their class.
Chevrolet's Tahoe is considered great value, especially when accounting for its powerful 5.3-liter V-8 engine with 355 horsepower, and it can seat nine passengers when owners select the split-folding bench seat option for the first and second rows. The GMC Yukon is a similar vehicle to the Tahoe but comes with extra features such as a locking rear differential for greater stability when traversing rugged terrain.
The Suburban by Chevrolet features a more spacious third row than the Tahoe, but the nine-seat configuration is only available on the Suburban's base model. Since the Suburban is such a massive vehicle, it boasts very large cargo dimensions. Even when all three rows are being used, the Suburban has 38.9 cubic feet of cargo space that expands to an even more impressive 121.1 cubic feet when both rear seats are folded flat into the ground.
