I'd say Trailblazer SS or Envoy. You call yourselves GM fans

Well from a reliability standpoint i'd say the Acura would be the best choice, but if she wants an original, fast, sporty, and somewhat fuel efficient SUV i'd hit the Infinity FX45. One of the smoothest V8'* around and it'll really haul. Just my .02

Stay away from the Ford Excursion and Expedition, They're available with a rear air bag suspension setup that has no 'up' limit switch, If you lift it without turning the system of you blow out the bags, How dumb is that? If they couldn't think to add that one little switch, waht else did they miss?

Personally I'd go with a Denali.

Yeah, but with the choices being consider (Porsche and BMW) I don't think Trailblazer and Envoy would be in her class. Personally I like the Escalade, but that probally seems to average compared the other choices

Out of those thre I would not chose any. Because I dont know about them but my uncle has a Mercedes ML320 and that is a beautiful suv. I would go with the ML320 because of the looks. All of you know when you buy a Mercedes you are getting the best quality and safety out there.

Yes but the Trailblazer SS is really fast... I don't care about class I care about value and if that means its alot of money so be it, or if it is minial then so be it!
