I was torn between the 2001 model and
the 2000 model. Good thing I got the
2000 model which runs on regular octane
gas with gas price so high now. I
consider myself a typical SUV user.
Someone who will probably never take
this SUV off the ashpalt pavement
except for the dirt & gravel road I
took between Nevada and California when
there was a major sig alert on I15 and
that was fun.
Fuel economy is great considering it
takes 87 octane gas. On other SUV, you
can get more horsepowers but you have
to put premium gas. The SE and LE
models are pretty much load with
The newer models have improve with more
agressive wheels and more power engine
(except premium gas only).
