So here’s just a little pre-information:
- I’m 6’3 ½
- I want 4 doors
- Decent fuel economy
- Higher ride height
Hi, first post.
I’m 23 and I currently own a Jeep Wrangler (2-door) and it’s by far the best vehicle I’ve owned so far. Just love Jeeps.
Thing is, I’m in the market for a new vehicle because as a daily driver, the Jeep has become an annoyance on gas, and (like most people) I don’t off-road it. I’d also like to save $$$ in general. I just think there’s a smarter alternative for someone like me. There’s also the fact my newly retired dad would love to take it off my hands, lol.
But there’s a big reason I bought the wrangler too: I’m a tall and broad guy, so the headroom and ride height were phenomenal for me. Being able to have a commanding view for the first time was amazing too.
I’ve looked into midsize trucks already, love the height but I don’t have use for one (they’re meant to be work vehicles… right?), and of course there’s the many crossover-ey SUV things right? Looks like a happy medium.
But aren’t they… mommy mobiles? For people who haul families on the regular? I want four doors and all, but I think they’re styled a bit too much like soccer mom vans.
There’s also the endless hounding I hear from people saying to only buy Japanese brands or you’re asking for trouble. That’s a whole different story, but I’d also hate to buy something with tons of issues.
What do you think? Should I still opt for the Colorado or something similar, even though the bed will rarely be used? Or is there something more practical out there I may have overlooked?
Might be asking for the impossible here, but thought I’d give it a shot. Thanks.
