Cons: All Terrain Tires that are standard on the Luxury and Premier package are noisy and rough for Highway Driving. Would prefer a touring tire.
Advice: Get the V-8 and AWD. Gas Mileage between it and the V-6 is about a mile per gallon less.Excellent ride. Good power with the V-8. V-6 is a little weak for a vehicle of this size. Love the AWD. Very comfortable and enjoyable to drive. The Luxury Package has a fantastic amount of just about any option you would ever want. The interior is gorgeous.
