Rugged Performance, Good Value — I ordered this vehicle from the factory with the options that would later be grouped as the R/T package, in fact, pretty much every option but the engine block heater, which I probably should have done. It's been to Montana in the winter, and up and down the west coast of the US, often towing a 28 foot travel trailer, with bikes or skis on the roof racks. Handling and traction in dicey road conditions has been superb, even while watching Subarus sliding out of control across my path. There have been occasional repairs, but I think we have gotten our money's worth, owning this vehicle for the last 10 years.

Owner for 10 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:8,000

Pros: 5.9L V8 has more power for same gas mileage as the 5.2L.  With the luggage carrier, you really can seat 7 on a long trip if you need to, in a fair degree of comfort.  CD player with Infinity speakers delivers outstanding sound.  Kids can climb in and out easily with the running boards.  Gas mileage (15-16 range) not significantly worse than the V6 minivan (18-21).

Cons: If you really want to tow 7000 lbs. over high mountain passes, get a diesel.  This rig can do it, but it does slow down when you're climbing a couple thousand feet at 6% or 7% grades.

Solid And Semi-fast Suv, Perfect For Anybody. — Great car but the gas mileage is not the best. Fast and sleek looking and also fun to drive.

Pros: A lot of interior space, especially trunk space when back seats folded down.  Fast
acceleration for a SUV

Cons: Heavy car which means not really good gas mileage

Its Got Good Truck Potential, And Some Power To Back It Up. — This truck is fairly capable, its decent at towing, and other such things. Though its god low power, the engine was designed for torque, so its got a good kick. Unfortunatly the car has had some problems in its lifetime that raise some flags.

Pros: Good truck, has torque.

Cons: Some problems.

A Fun Winter Vehicle — Bought this car as a winter vehicle, Did require a fair bit of maintainance when I picked it up, but given the milage this was not unexpected. it was fun to drive, had a big stereo, was raised, and had meatier tires, and windows tinted. was great for ski trips, cruising, etc. but for daily driving the poor gas milage hurt.

Pros: size, durabilty

Cons: gas milage

Most solid vehicle I’ve ever owned. Very torque-y. Obviously bad gas mileage.
