i just got a new infinity QX56 to replace my 3rd Yukon .... absolutely love it ... i got 19 MPG over spring break (1000+ miles and i don't drive slow) ... i never thought i would buy one over another Yukon but one test drive was it for me ... the fit and finish is hands down better than the Yukon ... hurt not buying a GM, especially with credit from my GM credit card

Just curious, did you compare to Land Cruiser? I don't have much experience with the new ones, wondering how they stack up.

old ball to consider.

Nissan Titan. Got 60k on my 2011. Works great. Came from a 6.2L Silverado (2010). Like the huge cabin of the Nissan.

might also wait a bit as I hear that Dodge will be offering a V6 3.0L diesel in their 1500 half tons this fall.

By the time you pay for depreciation, insurance, and maintenance on multiple vehicles it rarely pays off unless you drive a -lot- of miles on a daily basis. And no way I want to be towing my boat with an old junker pickup - a breakdown or inability to tow with it means lost lake time and the money spent on boat, etc is not worth skimping on the tow end of things.

I think it's the same engine they're putting in the jeep, which I referenced above (http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/26/2...kee-ecodiesel/)

I hope we see more diesel options for suv and light trucks soon.

IMHO, I drive a 2006 Tacoma 4D, 4x4 and it pulls the Tristar 190 very easily. I understand full-size trucks are nice, but it's a good economical option.
