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.

OK, good start but I'm pretty sure the toyota rav4 doesn't have that type of towing capacity. Could you give me a couple of more suggestions so that I can do some comparison shopping?

The rav 4 doesn't,t my recommendation is the Chevy trail blazer. bar none you'll not find a vehicle that has the good ride, good gas miles, towing ability and overall reliability of this SUV.
