2002 Toyota Highlander Limited AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I've driven Explorers, 4runners and Grand Cherokees, this is by far the most car-like ride quality of any mid-sized Sport Ute. It's also the best average gas mileage I've ever had with a Sport Ute. The rear seats are some of the quickest to lay flat that I've encountered.
Great performance and handling, and 18.2 average gas mileage.
Would prefer part-time Four wheel or a Locking center Diff. for use in deep snow. More macho stance.
