Let me start off with the obvious: Fuel Economy. I gave it a 9. Not because it is superb in fuel consumption compared to the average car on the road, but because it handedly beats everything in it's class. The MDS which turns off 4 of the 8 cyclingder while cruising along really does save alot of $$. The 5.7L V8 is powerful 345 hp and efficient 24 MPG highway 14 City and 18 mixed driving. That's darn good for this sort of vehicle in my opinion. It seats 7 comfortably and the long wheelbase is very comfortable at highway and around town speeds. Service costs are avg.
Seats (6-way power adj. w/ heathed leather) are comfortable and the heated feature works great in the cold winter season. Fulltime AWD keep things safe. Driver visibility is excellent. And the moonroof brings in excellent ventilation and light. Can tow with the best of them!
Towing mirrors and a trailer brake controller should be standard with the tow package option.
