Best Overall SUV for $45k or less

ReviewI test drove ALL SUVs that could carry 6+ passengers and drag at least 5,500 lbs. This is the best overall vehicle for the money. Reviews about the soft suspension tuning are right - which makes it ride extremely smooth on the road (which is where it will stay for most of its life). Big V-8 engine is great, with mediocre fuel economy. User selectable 2WD or 4WD and self- leveling suspension in the back are great. Interior quality is good. Getting the same vehicle in a foreign manufacturer would cost $10k more - with a dubious return on that investment.
Best FeaturesGreat legroom, cargo room. Includes air pump in back that can pump up your own tires or anything else.
Worst FeaturesRear view is blocked by rear entertainment center when it is being used - fixing that would be great (maybe headrest LCDs).
