It's a disgrace that the "Truck of the Year" is going to be picked from a field of SUVs with no diesel options. tongue_crossed-eyes.gif
I'll take the Suburban with the 6000. At least it won't look ridiculous with a trailer hitch.

I also took the Chevys. I really think they did a good job on the redesign, taking the Suburban and Tahoe several steps forward from their predecessors, while the Wrangler has arguably taken some steps backward over the years, the X3 hasn't gone much of anywhere, and the the Q7 is just...well, sorta ugly.

I chose the tahoe. Its got a good ride, great towing, lots of room, great reliability, best off road next to the wrangler and is most improved over its previous generations. The Q7 looks o.k., best interior, the best on road but fails at towing, room and off road. The X3 is horrible off road, great on road but just isn't as good as the Q7. The wrangler is good, but its too specialized since its terrible on road.

Seeing as how I wouldn't even classify the Q7 or X3 as "trucks", and i just plain do not like the Wrangler, I'll be voting for the Tahoe.

Q7. Simply because it's better looking than the rest.

Jeep Wrangler because it does an excellent job of maintaining the heritage and classic looks of the Wrangler while introducing many new innovative features as well as the practicality of a 4-door convertible model. Also, you'd be hard pressed to find a better off roader for the money.

Concerning the X3 and the Q7; if I wanted something good for on-road use with a nice interior I would choose their non-suv equivalents.
Also I decline the Tahoe because of those exploitative "patriotic" commercials Chevy has been running.
Jeep Wrangler for me.

I may be wrong on this, but aren't all of these trucks capable of towing anything anyone would feasibly tow? I think they could all handle a boat, its just a matter of how much overkill you want.

it's picking which is the least bad. The Q7 is the least bad. But they're all atrocious.

Windshield, to answer your question, yes, the would all probably tow enough. But, that's just going into the argument of how people who buy suv's dont really use them to their full potential. I figure, for the sake of voting for the best suv and not for what people will actually use, I chose the tahoe. Remember though, when towing, even though people will get diesels, uprated suspensions and transmissions, etc to improve towing, they are just doing it so that it makes it easier (most of the time).

you could at least pick the best of the worst, like I did when I went for the Q7.

At least the inside is a nice place to be in the Q7...

There are only 2 real trucks in this poll. And I'm surprised the Jeep isn't getting the most votes so far.

Q7 has an available diesel. A diesel with 738 lb-ft of torque at that.
linky.
