Not cool - it's just another utility vehicle with luxury aspirations inside. Looks best buried under an avalanch.

It's American!! that's all that needs to be said. Ant or Keithy will be along soon and be red with rage as i reckon he/they either proposed it or because he/they love American cars.

Its as refined as a Sumo ballet dancer.

Nope.

Pick up trucks should be utilitarian. You wear jeans with holes in, work boots, and wife-beater shirts to drive them. They are cool because the laydeez like a bit of rough (apparently). It doesn't necessarily matter that you're an accountant, you just have to look the part.

Depressingly useless... What is the point of this vehicle? It will drive like a bucket of cement on rollerskates. It will be badly put together. It's comfort will be risible. Its mpg will be about 9. It will have no toys that work for more than a week. It will star on "America's Wildest Police Chases" in about 7 years when Sherrif "Orange" Burnell explains how a Good Ol' boy PIT manoeuvred it into barrel rolling into oncoming traffic.

An SUV?
Vehicle - yes.
Utility - negligible
Sport - none

I love the way that causing a car to spin out across the divider into oncoming traffic on the interstate causing a mahoosive pile up is considered a successful conclusion to a chase in America. I don't know why they don't riddle the car with bullets and leave it at that.

It's not bad looking for what it is. I would imagine that in its correct element, it could probably be seen as a pretty nice car.

Mind you, I do have this personality disorder whioch results in me occasionally slipping and thinking that massive great hulking pick-up trucks (especially the Dodge Ram) look quite cool. I think it comes from liking The Fall Guy as a kid.

Due to the random nature of this, I also wonder whether it's come up because either Ant owns this car, or he is considering buying one.

Uncool. It just doesn't tick any boxes whatsoever and fails to even remotely threaten climbing on to the cool part of our wall.

Actually, I REALLY dislike these things.

But I find the Tahoe to be pretty cool.
