    Iso suv with 8 or 9 seats

    Anyone have one? We have a suburban with seven seats, but it's on its last leg. I'm looking at a newer suburban, with 8 or 9 seats. Does anyone know how many head rests it would have? Another reason we want to upgrade is our current 2005 suburban has no headrest and only a Lap belt in the third row center seat. It's ok with a car seat there, but I expect we will have this newer car longer then car seats, so want as many head rests as possible. Any other SUVs I should consider? Would prefer to avoid a van, as dh needs to be able to pull a trailer.

    The Honda Pilot seat 8 comfortably and should have shoulder belts and head restraints in all positions.

    Even brand new Suburbans still lack a center head restraint for all rows. 2015 and newer ones at least have tether anchors for all 2nd and 3rd row seating positions and lap-shoulder belts in the 2nd and 3rd rows but I believe the front center seat still has a lap-only belt.

    If you want something with 8 head restraints, you'll want to look at something like the Toyota Sequoia or possibly even a Mercedes Benz Sprinter which is a van but has an all wheel drive option.

    Hmm... That's a bummer. So the eight seat suburban has 7 head rests, or only 6?

    6 head restraints. None of the center seats have head restraints.
