Tahoe is not really comfortable though, IMO. Plus it looks ugly. Yea, the 97 era is when they came out with a new v6, though it was an upgrade.

Ya it was around 2000-2001 when they released their new DOHC option in the rangers, explorers. What about a Trailblazer Jim? I haven't heard much anything bad about them, have all the power you could ever want from an inline 6?? Comfy, and closer to the size of an Explorer?? I think?

The new Trailblazer/Envoy was redesigned for 2k2 I believe and a lot of ppl complained about the fuel consumption of the new GM inline 6.

And its to expensive, up to 2001 or so (IIRC) the Envoy looked like the Jimmy/Blazer body style..

Hey we should get pics goin :P

Well Jimbo, and Escape would be pretty economical. But if she'* leaning towards a mid-size one, I'd agree with you on the Envoy/Trailblazer or a Grand Cherokee Ltd.

My fave so far is the rhinocerous looking Acura MDX, but its way spendy. I would lean towards getting an Oldsmobile Bravada if we could....I just have to keep her away from the Buick Rendezvous...eesh...

Bravada


Interior


The Escape/Tribute is nice, but to small for our needs.

Wouldn't go with a Grand Cherokee if you're concerned about fuel economy. Chrysler'* are gas guzzlers to the max. Notorious for trans problems too.

I second whoever above said that the Blazer/Jimmy line has turned out a few too many lemons. I wouldn't say ours ('99 Blazer) is a lemon, but it'* had its issues and I have known others who have had the same type of issues (currently it the horn doesn't work, and the drivers side mirror is being strange-like I said, not major issues, but issues just the same). It hasn't been mentioned, maybe for good reason, but what about a Hyundai Santa Fe? They seem to be pretty popular around where I'm at and are kinda a nice looking SUV (in my opinion). I guess that'* out if you want to stick with the major domestic car companies...but it'* an option.
