|I went through this same exercise two years ago. IMHO the Acura MDX is one of the best SUVs on the market, and was ranked #1 by Consumer Reports several years ago. That said, it is more luxury than I needed (or wanted) and far more expensive than the other models you are considering. I also thought about the Xterra. It is rigged and ready for towing, but a little rough riding and not great mileage. I ultimately bought an AWD Murano, put on an after market tow package (probably superior to the factor equipped tow package IF you could even find one), and it has proven to be a great solution for my requirements. In June, it towed my 15' center console (total weight under 2000 lbs.) from So Cal up to Crowley Lake and back without any issues, including the drive up Sherwin Grade. As I said earlier, this was a great solution for my needs, but it is NOT a truck. Everyone's requirements are different. |
