The oversized SUVs and GM-product cars are pretty much as visible as anything else on the road, sorry.
All else being equal, I would argue that the hopped-up Civic or oversized SUV's WITH DRL's turned on would be more visible than the same vehicle with DRL's turned off. We're trained to identify objects that have contrast with respect to their environments, and DRL's add additional contrast.
