probably considering my V8 is actually a tad under 5L. I could have had the 5.4L if I wanted to... but we have no need for such a big engine.

Its designed to tow 6,000 pounds... IWe'd be fine with the v6, but they don't make the 4x4 with a v6, and for someone who drives like him, a RWD car in snow would be a bit scary.

Its stupid because the payload in that is about 1,600 pounds, which is the same as our minivans. So you get more power but the same load capacity on the car. Only thing it can do better is tow.

But it is a blast to drive. And we get 18 mpg overall with it, so its not that bad on gas for a v8.
