    This article is biased as it does not list all other factors on comparable vehicles. If it wants you to avoid the suburban for purchase, they should  tell you if  a Sequoia or Armada are better. Do they provide all the same benefits at a better value and why? the same goes for the Durango and the explorer as opposed to the 4runner or Landcruiser. There has to be a direct comparison in order to make a value judgment here.
