Is it wrong...

... to want one of these when they come out in the summer or fall, when I'm a professed environmentalist but also a professed 4WD enthusiast, who needs just such a creature for those expeditions into Mexico, and beyond?

This SUV looks interesting. Can't wait to see it on the road.

I feel your pain...I so want a subaru outback, but Daniel says the mpg isn't
good enough.

Definitely. I'm of a real fractured mind. I could get a hybrid Civic for about $7K less than the new FJ Cruiser, and get 2.5 times better gas milage. But then no trips into the hinterlands. I'm also considering a Forester, but they don't get great gas mileage, either.

Ah, decisions, decisions. Thanks for checking in!
