Thanks for using JA
The best suv's out there are the toyota rav 4, and honda pilot.
very dependable and great on gas, fun to drive.
but when it comes to towing gas miles will be greatly effected, and you'll need power.
my recommendation would be a Chevy trail blazer with the 6 cylinder 4.2l engine
great all around truck good gas miles for it's class. lots of power.
the 5 passenger not the extended, the 7 passenger is bad on gas.
