Remarkable for its size

ReviewNot to sound like a parrot repeating what every other article says... but this van truly drives like a much smaller vehicle than it really is. With the exception of the nice and high driving position, you would think that you are driving a minivan. It really is that easy and totally different from what you would expect from something that is 25 foot long (170" EXT model). I was first concerned about the horsepower being so low, but the power is more than sufficient due to the torque and doesn't have any major issues keeping up with traffic. Highway mileage is phenomenal for such a large vehicle. 22-23 MPG is the norm on the highway and even better if drafting. Ride is also very comfortable.
Best FeaturesHuge dual sliding doors, miles per gallon, drives like a much smaller vehicle and better than many smaller trucks/SUV's/vans, interior fit and finish is excellent, ride is nicely controlled and surprisingly stable for such a tall vehicle, Parktronic and cameras works well and makes parking a snap
Worst FeaturesQuicker order to delivery time (took 6 months), "Beefier" steering wheel as the stock one could be thicker, better radio reception, more wheel/tire choices, possibly more HP and torque without sacrificing the MPG, the front seats could be a longer or adjustable to better support taller drivers
