This is the first SUV I have owned, unless you count the Volvo XC70 I had. I am not a big fan of SUVs but they have their purpose. We wanted something that would ride more people comfortably, be able to tow a car trailer and haul stuff, and is great in the winter. This vehicle has the 362HP twin turbo 4.7L V8 engine. This is the first year of the X166 GL chassis which brought many evolutionary changes to the GL line. We don't intend to put that many miles a year on this as it is not our daily driver except in the winter.
