New tow vehicle

I've been wanting a full-size suv for a while and being a fan of the 08 Tundra, I picked up a white 2008 Limited 4x4 Toyota Sequoia last week. Got an excellent deal on it since most toyota customers are interested in the hybrids. Surprisingly it gets the same gas mileage as the 05 Durango did, has a smaller fuel tank, and only requires regular 87 octane. I'm really impressed with the interior space and exterior styling too. It will definitely be more comfortable on road trips.

the jeep wrangler unlimited rubicon? I had one ordered and everything but canceled it due to its highway and towing performance. Bad ass jeep for sure but the Sequoia is a better fit for our needs.

Very nice, Nolan and Kim.

So the Durango wasn't full-sized? I thought it was pretty damn big.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Not saying that the Durango was small. Its cargo space behind the front seats was similar to a trailblazer, explorer, or pathfinder at about 100 cubic feet. Tahoes, expeditions, and armadas are at about 110. The 08 Sequoia is at about 120 cubic feet while the exterior is smaller than the expedition and armada. Toyota engineering ftw.
