    Best Suv Ever! — This vehicle was bought as a hunting and skiing vehicle. Since then we have towed just about everything under the sun and pulled many people out of ditches. Verstatile to do anything and haul up to 9 people. Roof rack is rated at 250 # and holds every bit of that and more. Best group transport or moving vehicle for the average person.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Love the size of the vehicle and what it can pull. Strong transmission can get you out of nearly anything. Easy to work on and tons of parts to repair it.

    Cons: Mileage is about average for large truck. Tires can get pricey.

    This Truck Says "here I Am" To Everyone :) — This is a great vehicle. Rugged, and will do anything asked of it. Gas mileage a bit poor, but will haul eight people with luggage in a blizzard towing a boat. Currently sitting at 170k this vehicle has never left me stranded. Solid, cheap to maintain, and a confortable workhorse of a truck. The Vortec 454 still has plenty of power and sounds really healthy and is capable of moving this beast around with ease. With all of the seats folded down the cargo area is the size of a large pickup bed.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Room, Off Road Capability

    Cons: My gas card is maxed out?

    Would Buy The 9 Passanger Version Next Time — its big and takes up lots of space... scares other drivers when yiu change lanes ..... lol........rides smooth and gets decent mpg for a very large s.u.v. seats 8 and 10 beer coolers full of your favorite adult beverage...my wife and step daughters love driving this big truck even though they all drive small cars..and you can fit a compact s.u.v in the back

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: great fuel mpg for large ride

    Cons: nothing

    It's Great For Hauling The Kids And Their Friends As Long As You Have The Gas Money — I love the feeling of not fearing bad weather conditions. The body is strudy and I love having all of the cargo space as well as space to haul more than just us. It gives you the feeling of having a truck with the functionality of a larger passenger vehicle.

    Pros: Space and four wheel drive

    Cons: gas hog
