  • Tall carriage, lots of window area, and spacious cabin combine for a 360 degree view of the world

Misses

  • Thirsty V8 engine
  • Poor reliability history

I couldn’t imagine a better opportunity at a better time to test the latest premium SUV from the brand that practically invented the go anywhere, do anything vehicle.
