This is a great car. I rated most of the comfort, performance, etc., a 9 and not a 10 because when rating car's comfort, a car is the gold standard compared to an SUV. For an SUV, it is pretty comfortable, esp. for one that can go off-road and isn't a "crossover." The only complaint I have heard is that the style is "dated." I would disagree, it's a nice looking car that's tough, yet refined and not crazy looking like some of the new SUVs around. It does eat up gas, but that's expected with a V8 in an SUV. Great car if you want to be able to go anywhere. Better value compared to any other lux SUVs in terms of options that come with it as a standard.
The car is quiet and smooth to drive and it has nice clearance, esp. if you want to go off-road. Lots of room, but not huge.
It has a lot of power, yet you can feel the weight of the car a little. Not a lot of cup holders which would have been nice to have in the doors like the Toyota 4Runner does and to have the cup holders in the front to be large enough to hold nalgene bottles, esp. when going hiking.
