Best Looking SUVs

Don't know if this topic has been done before, but here are my top five looking SUVS. There aren't really any criteria, since looks are so subjective, so here goes:

1) 2001 Ford Escape (Perfect length, love that bumper/grill, square-ish back, yet has a hint of "roundness")

2) 2002 GMC Envoy (Finally, a GMC truck that looks nice, and not too squared-off as so many older GMC trucks were)

3) 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer (Same platform as the Envoy, a little square-ish, but decent, nonetheless)

4) Nissan Xterra - refreshingly unbashful about its truck platform, it focuses on the utilitarian side of things, rather that style, as so many SUVs are striving for these days)

5) Cadillac Escalade (absolutely monster grill - I love the Caddy grills, however, the rest of the truck is really too boxy. Maybe if it was a little shorter, and more rounded at the back. The front is good enough for me, though!)

- Other notable favourites:

2002 Explorer (love the new grill, wish the back was more rounded, like the Escape)

Rav 4 (nice overall, but I hate the swinging wheel thing)

I too like the look of the smaller ones better.

1. Mazda Tribute/Ford Escape, pretty much the same vehicle the mazda looks slightly better though.

2. RAV4

3. GMC Envoy

I do not like the Honda CRV, looks kinda weird and boxy.

BMW X5 is rad!

Land Rover Disco is very proper looking. A new Range Rover is coming out in 2 years that should look really badass.

All those Toyota products, no offense, are fugly (including the Lexus RX).

The big Lexus ain't bad, new Mitsu Montero is ok.

Isuzu Trooper is awful. New Suzuiki XL7 is nice looking for price and manual shift!

Jeep Liberty looks ok.

is it just me or does the new Explorer look like the Isuzu Rodeo? (from the front) I like the Yukon Denali and Ford Escape. Honorable mentions to BMW X5 and Acure MDX. I also wish Land Rover still sold the 110's down here. I always loved the rugged simlicity of it.

Well, I'm a minority here because I hate SUVs, but if I had to have one, I'd go with either a Rover or a Jeep Cherokee. And I'd drive the damned thing through the mud, over potholes, hills, and everything else it was made to do!

I hate SUVs too!
Although the ones I listed are the only ones I have respect for. If I lived in rural Montana or had a business that required an SUV, those are the kind I would consider.

Sophie...suv's aren't made for that anymore sadly. They are made for soccer moms to talk on the phone and drive 2 miles per hour.

I'm can't speak for anyone else, but I love cranking my Dad's Ford Escape from 0-60 mph. It leaves most cars in the dust, except for the sports cars, and perhaps, the SUVS with more hp. Although, in several 0-60 mphs, I've out-distanced a QX4, and the new 2002 Explorer. All it takes is a red light, a friendly nod and smile to the next car... and we're off!

 Smile

And yeah, if I had a Lexus, I probably wouldn't go into the dirt trails, unless I had money burning in my pocket. I sure as heck wouldn't trust my Escape off road, because it simply can't cope.

4. 2001 Jeep Wrangler (If you consider it an SUV)
5. 2002 Acura MDX

I love SUV's, but I have to agree with Superfly. Sports Cars Rule! Especially the 2000 Dodge Viper RT/10. I should start a discussion about it. Anyway, if the SUV has luxury, I like it!  Smokin cool  Big thumbs up

Best Regards and Thanks

PS: You need an SUV in Pittsburgh. It snows like anything here. I just like a little more luxury on the inside, that's all.
