Unveiled back in 2013, the fourth-generation Escalade continues to ride on a ladder frame.
There were rumors that the fourth-gen Escalade would move over to a more approachable unibody format, but those rumors obviously never materalized.
The Escalade ESV is a longer version of the Escalade, and...well, that's it, really.
If you really need space, but you're not willing to give up on luxury, the ESV is here for you.
The also-very-long Suburban shares many of its underpinnings with the Escalade ESV.
The Suburban has existed in various forms since 1935.
If the Suburban is a little too big for you, the smaller Tahoe exists -- it's sort of the Escalade to the Suburban's Escalade ESV.
This is definitely the same interior picture as the Suburban, except GM changed the background. Badge engineering!
Introduced all the way back in the late 1990s, the Expedition is only in its third generation.
The Expedition rides on a modified version of Ford's P2 platform, which was also used on the steel-body, pre-2015 Ford F-150.
If, for some reason, you're stuck between the Tahoe and the Escalade, the GMC Yukon slots right in between the two.
The Yukon, Tahoe and Escalade are all kissin' cousins.
As with the Yukon-Tahoe-Escalade triumvirate, the Yukon XL exists alongside the Suburban and Escalade ESV.
If you really want to get fancy, opt for the Denali trim and watch all your money fly right out the window.
Infiniti's QX80 is actually a fancy version of the non-US-market Nissan Patrol.
Like nearly every other vehicle on this list thus far, the QX80 has a large V-8 engine under the hood.
The Wrangler might be the first ute that comes to mind when body-on-frame construction is brought up.
Even though it's due for a redesign next year, the Wrangler continues to be the strongest-selling body-on-frame SUV by a factor of two.
OK, the Land Rover LR4 isn't purely body-on-frame. Allow me to explain.
The engine bay and passenger compartment are a single piece, and it's then bolted to a ladder frame. It's basically half body-on-frame, and its layout is unique in this list.
The Lexus GX is a hopped-up version of the Toyota 4Runner. No more, no less.
Even the GX's interior is rather close to that of its Toyota brethren.
Lexus also has a fancy version of the Toyota Land Cruiser in its ranks.
It operates on a modified version of the second-generation Toyota Tundra's frame.
Loved by ballers the world over, the Lincoln Navigator shares many of its underpinnings with the Ford Expedition.
A new Navigator should be coming soon, riding on a version of the 2015 F-150's frame.
The Geländewagen is as old as time itself, and it's never once dared to shed its body-on-frame construction.
Driving this rolling time capsule is like attempting to drive a small office park.
The old Armada is gone, but while its replacement is really just a tweaked Nissan Patrol, it still boasts a body and a separate frame.
The new Armada was apparently planned to ride on the new Titan's frame, but that never materialized.
The Toyota 4Runner, while growing larger and larger by the year, continues to shine both on and off-road.
OK, maybe it really only shines off road, but that's because body-on-frame isn't necessarily the best option for the street.
The venerable Toyota Land Cruiser is held in high regard around the world for its durability and luxury.
At $84,000 a pop, it's a fair bit more expensive than the Tundra on which it's based.
The Toyota Sequoia is still on sale, yes, despite being nearly 10 years old at this point.
It came out a year after the second-generation Tundra did, so it's rocking the same frame as both the Land Cruiser and Lexus LX.
