I'd rather roll in my crown vic than a RX350, at least it has some kind of "history" behind it. RX350 is your asian step moms car. :disgust:
Is this just the baked-in "I'll never drive a Camry!" :wap: argument or is there some basis to why you don't like the RX? Just assess it as a vehicle and ignore the stigma. I mean I bought a flat brim vapemobile that only rich white stoner kids who listen to deadmau5 are interested in despite me having no interest in that lifestyle at all...
Like the same reason I don't necessarily want a CR-V or a RAV-4 they are just very female ownershit oriented cars. Same with the forester and lesbians. Is it a bad car... not exactly. But why spend all that money on the badge and something that is just generally not fun overly comfortable or stylish.
Why not get a buick for 4-5k and do the same shit.

I would rock the fuck out of a Macan if I didn't live IN THE DESERT. If you live in anyplace with weather or potholes, or a wife who pulls all the way forward in every parking stall (that's a lot of you bros), the combination of POWER and ground clearance, and not killing yourself are hard to beat. The interior is just like a Gayman. And I think they look pretty sharp, unlike the Cayenne, which I've never gotten behind.
They're interesting. A guy at work has one, I noticed it today. If they actually are really good to drive then I bet they'd be a hoot to own. I'm wondering if it's good to drive vs another random CUV, or good to drive vs a sports sedan, or good to drive vs a 911.... People say they're great but IDK what their frame of reference is.

Why can't a crossover or :truk: be fun? This is why I left last time. The complete inability to see other perspectives is just :mindblown:

I never said a truck can't be fun. I also never said a truck is a wasteful piece of shit. And 99% of this forum feels exactly the same way, as we have told you multiple times.
Seriously some major :baby: shit again. Everyone loves your god damn truck get over yourself.

Dave is the only person here who doesn't kind of want a :truk:

Even I want a tow vehicle of some kind - and a :truk: is the most cost effective one because of resale value. $20k new base Ranger when it comes out will be the logical best choice - or a fully depreciated $5k RWD full-size van.

If they were to cost the same to buy and to own (i.e. insurance+depreciation), then I'd prefer a medium sized van - think 90s full size or so. Bigger than a transit connect with power and real towing ability, but smaller than a current full-size... but the only thing even close to that is a fucking $50k Mercedes thing that'll likely be worth $10k in 10 years, while a $20k ranger will be worth $15k and cost zero to repair/maintain during that time.

I don't expect this truk resale BS to last. They were the cheapest vehicles to buy period for most of the time due to their high production numbers and little use for DD'ing.

:impressive: the only way I know which is which is by the black plastic moulding island at the bottom of the doors on the Macan.

The long wheel base connect would fit most of my needs. Bonus points if it has the high roof.

I don't. I hardly ever visit the Car Talk section anymore because it's basically all :truk: talk and :jeep: talk. The RDX is all the truk we need, and I'd rather have a wagon but the wife gets :triggered: any time I suggest such nonsense.

That said, I can totally see why something like a ZR2 or a TRD Pro could be fun, I just have no interest in driving one or reading about them.

Size-wise even the SWB connect would be OK I think, but the :jalepenis: motor I assume would suck to tow 1500-2000 lbs.

Max tow is 2k, and I doubt it’s getting anywhere fast. I’d use it to haul bikes, so the towing capacity isn’t super relevant to me. If I were towing a car, then definitely a full size is in order.

I could get by with an SWB, but it’s a tight squeeze with a bike, unless I deleted the passenger seat.
