We have two kids and a dog, we frequently go camping in the summer, skiing in the winter and need to bring a lot of gear, and often our kids friends.
We have a ski boat that weighs 4500 pounds.
We live in a region that gets 200 to 300 inches of snow every winter.
So basically, our requirements in a vehicle are:
- 7 passenger seating
- 7500 pound towing capacity
- Good cargo space even with 7 passengers
This thing is perfect.... We just got from a long trip and we averaged 19 mpg.
We used to have a trailblazer that didn't get any better than that..... We had a Grand Cherokee that was worse... Mini vans only get like 24 or so (and can't tow)....
Why all the hate?
