Exotic for penny's on the dollar

Drive one and you will see! You will never drive any other Suv if you own one of these. Comfort, sportiness , luxury , innovation ahead of its time. I can still be respected by a valet , go hunting, pull the wakeboard boat and if I want hit the track for DE with PCA every now and then. The Swiss army knife of SUV's.
