Saw a Butt Ugly SUV Today - Page 4

The Mega Cruiser is Toyota's answer to the Hummer H1, and a civilianized military vehicle also. At least they put 4-wheel steering on them.

By my definition all SUV vehicles are butt ugly. That said, I'm going to need one up here in Washington and British Columbia. I wonder which is least butt ugly.

Still doesn't rescue it from the "butt-ugly" category.

I am beginning to lean towards "less is more" minimalist pilosophy re: SUV styling, as opposed to failed experimentations in modern design:

hence, seriously considering a Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe LTZ...never thought it would come down to looking at Chevys

Sorry, Cayenne if fugly. Also, horrible cockpit IMO, very fugly there too. Are you planning on buying this SUV, RSS? Want long life with good reliability? Off-road, snow, etc? I would suggest Toyota Land Cruiser for this. Bullet proof, fairly modern tech all around, roomy, not jarring with its looks.

Interesting, the Land Cruiser is exactly what I've been thinking. I probably won't lease this one ... may even buy slightly used ... as this isn't meant to replace the "new car."

Well, if two great minds such as ours agree...

Drove a Land Cruiser for 14 years. Loved it. I think the new ones are far more refined than the one I drove. I loved the Cayenne S I drove for a week while my Carrera was being serviced. Fantastic SUV. I guess I tend to like Porsche styling.

Well, that's really the thing. Styling is pretty much a matter of taste/opinion. There's no wrong answers, only what you do and do not like.

Friend of mine has a Cayenne: cannot keep the front end aligned. The fucker just keeps chewing tires.

I switched it the next day to a Dodge Charger and remembered that the Charger was tons of fun to drive. Surprisingly nimble too (especially for tight situations like parallel parking on steep San Francisco hills).
