2011 Dodge Durango

It's not the most exciting vehicle we've ever written about, but if you need to haul around a whole car load of family members, gear, or both, the new 2011 Dodge Durango ($TBA) is certainly practical. Powered by either a 3.6L V6 or a 5.7L Hemi V8 with a fuel-sipping four-cylinder mode, the all-new SUV boasts a new, decidedly better-looking body, a more luxurious interior, the ability to go 500 miles on a single tank of gas, keyless entry, and 22 different seating configurations to ensure that no matter who or what you're carrying, the new Durango will be ready — unlike that shiny Firebreather you've had your eyes on.

  • 2011 Ford Explorer

    One might question the sanity of buying a full-size SUV in an age of crossovers and ever-higher gas prices, but for those that really need the... utility, the 2011 Ford Explorer ($28,200 and up) looks mighty nice. Powered by either a 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 engine good for 237hp or a 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine with 290hp, the new Explorer offers impressive fuel economy, as well as a six-speed automatic transmissions, intelligent four-wheel drive electric power-assisted steering, the MyFord Touch and SYNC systems, and a new weight saving design. Not included is a shield to deflect all the eco-hate being thrown your way for driving around in such a conspicuously large vehicle.

  • Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon LAPV 6.X

    Based on the company's rugged G-Class SUV, the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon LAPV 6.X ($TBA) is an armored patrol vehicle as fit for the battlefield as it is for the forest. Features include a diesel engine, a payload capacity of 1.3 tons, a full steel body, a mine deflector plate, an individual tire inflation system, and a number of advanced tactical military technologies from EADS. Let's just hope its defenses are more hearty than those of its homeland's national team.
