I drove my new Passport Elite (Lunar Silver) off the lot yesterday. I traded in my 2012 4Runner w/ 109K miles on it. 4Runners are bulletproof and I'm sure it would have gone another 100K with no trouble at all, but my wife was tired of the truck-like handling and feel, and I wanted to finally have something with some updated tech features. Also, while it was nice to have a car that you could take anywhere and hop curbs, I rarely used the capability. We looked at Explorers and Tellurides, but I really wasn't interested in the 3rd row, and the Passport pricing was much better (the Explorer is way overpriced for the quality, and the Telluride, while beautiful, is flying off the Kia lots at $1500 over MSRP). Anyway, the Passport seemed to have the perfect combination of cargo room, ground clearance, technology, and comfort. Looking forward to breaking it in!
