I know its not on your list but i think the best SUV would be a G-Class G500 or G55AMG.
What other full size SUV does 0-60 in 7.2 sec? Also I think a G is a LOT safer than any minivan.

does the cayenne classify as a full size? the new G55k should be quicker than that, i think thats the spec for the atmo 55.

Are "Overfinch" still putting huge US V8's in range rovers? If you can get one in the US they beat everything on the list hands down. About £35K on top of the list price though[:0]

E55T would be good. Also cant go wrong with any G. What about a G400?

Well if you're allowed to count the Overfinch, you need to compare it with the G SV12. Now thats a nice car.

RE: An unrealistic comparison but what the hell!

All of the above are great vehicles to someone, but i'm inclined towards a classic looking G55L or the legendary LX470. Both have great off road capability and are real 4x4 SUV's.

There is an E55 Wagon, which is great, but you will lose the height of the LX470 or Gwagon.

I beg you to skip garbage like the Cayenne, X-5/5wagon and Range Rover. It would be better to take a bus than ride in a sienna (in this league).

hope noone is too offended with my choices. its just how i think[:)]
