Take it out and let us know how it does. Watching the videos on Toyota’s web site it looks like a great off road machine. I have not talked to anyone who has one yet. I need some first hand feed back!! Congrats!!
I'm really laughing about it now. My wife wants to go camping this weekend...someplace really off the beaten path! Too funny! She's never really been much of one for roughing it so maybe this beast helps us turn a new corner.
Next step: she needs to get her hunting license!
As to offroad capabilities: heh, I'll give some lightweight commentary after the weekend. The previous hunting wagon was a Rav4 2wd stick with tall truck tires. It did pretty darn well all things considered!
BTW, I ran over a few curbs on principal - not bad at all!
Now I should note that I don't think I'll ever get her out on multiple overnight backpacking trips, but a day or two in woods she can deal with. Give her a decent shower on a regular basis and she's game for a lot more!
Headroom is amazing! first off the seat has several inches of vertical height adjustment. Second, the headrooom - damn it's nice! I'm 5'8" and I have a solid 8" of headroom. The cab of the rig is very, very square which really lends itself to a lot o shoulder and head room.
Very wide, very large, very comfortable. I suspect that a 6'2" 280#-er wouldn't have any issues with it.
BTW, first tank of gas, mixed freeway and city netted 18.5mpg. That's for the auto trans with the roof rack. Not bad at all.
I am convinced that 21mpg is really quite doable at 75mph on the freeway.
