I'm on the market of an suv. I'm kind of stuck on toyotas, so that makes things easy there. The nobrainer was a land cruiser, but I can't take out a mortgage at this time. I'm down to 4runner and RX450h. Anyone having any experience with these? I'm torn because the fuel consumption is massively different. I love the runner, and it comes with all the plush toys of a fully loaded car and my kind of toys like a locker so on so on. The rx is loaded, naturally and get 30+mpg. And it's my wife's favorite, like the runner is mine.

TTThoughs?

One is truck based and the other is based on a car. What about a Highlander? The front of the 4runner is cringe worthy. The RX is a little better.

the Cherokee is a trail rig. I take it out to play and when there is snow (play) on the roads.

the rx450h is more like mid to high 20's

esp if you go 70+ on highway.

Based on what the stickers say.
Oh and highlander is no go as it (supposedly) uses more fuel and I get the rx cheaper.

How can you get a RX450h cheaper than a Highlander?

RX450h is $57k-$63k

You can get a Highlander XLE for $38k

$20,000 buys a lot of fuel

Easy answer is give her the Beretta to drive and it looks like you could crank up the Harley a little more and put her to some use

That makes no sense. I achieved 24mpg with 07 mdx doing 60-70mph on a highway trip. The guzzler is rated 15/20.

OP didn't mention new or used. If it's the family car (that's [censored], someone is the primary driver) and you've got a Jeep toy the choice is still obvious IMO. You really need lockers for the family hauler?

The off road capabilities are needed since she has absolutely 0 competence when it comes to snow. The ski trips would also benefit from the added capabilities. And the runner rides better than a 94 Deville, can't compare the jeep to it.
The both vehicles used as far as value depreciation goes,but are sub 20k miles.

The Beretta is getting scrapped, the is250 will claim the hoopty status. The Harley gets used every chance I get.
