Help me buy my next car

The other car thread got me thinking that maybe I should ask you guys what kind of car I should buy.

Here is what you need to know.

1. I have a wife, son, and 105 lb dog (GSD).
2. I live in Iowa, so I don't want anything that would suck in bad weather.
3. My wife drives a Subaru Outback. I love it. Awesome car in shitty weather, and since its AWD, there is no guess work when to use 4WD. We have a divered so the dog stays out of the front.
4. We don't really travel with the dog, but we take her down the road to hang out with my father-in-laws GSD every day, so she's in the car twice a day.

What I'm looking for.

1. I want a vehicle with some size. If we were going to load up and go on a trip, I want a vehicle that has some cargo space.

2. Need decent gas mileage, but realize what I'll get with AWD of 4WD

3. If its over 6000, I would qualify for a business tax deduction.

4. I entertain clients, so needs to be nice.

Vehicles I've thought about.

1. New Ford F150, Chevy, GMC, Ram. - Crew Cab short box throw a topper on it for the dog. Like the idea of keeping the cabin clean.

2. I can't believe what the new Tahoes and Surburbans go for.

3. Larger mid-size SUVs, GMC Arcadia, Ford Explorer, really any mid-size SUV, would do.

4. Somedays I'm like fu@k it, and just get another Outback, but I know I'll miss the size.

So don't you get more bang out of a pickup?

These SUVs only really seat four comfortably anyway. Plus I can tow more.

We looked at Acadias, but ended up getting an LTZ Traverse instead. We love it. And yes, **** what they charge for a Tahoe these days. They do it because morons will pay it.

And moms who think they need it.

I have a 2015 Ram crew cab. Good room fits 5 easy. Have a friend with a topper and it looks good. There is a V6 that can get 27 mpg.

Truck, truck, or you could go with a truck. Topper for the dog, plus adds tons of cargo space since they lock. Used F150 woulld be good. Used Toyota would be great, but they hold their value so well, you will spend more. I've got a 2012 Tacoma 4x4 deluxe cab with a matching topper, and it does all the stuff you are talking about plus it's cool cuz it's a truck.

The wife was into an Acadia pretty deep, the Denali one too. F That. Talked here into a Honda minivan. Now she says she'll never go back.

I was reading your list, saw 1. and 2. and in my head I said, "oh he should look at a Subaru Outback" and then I saw 3.

I'll give a +1 to the F150. My father picked one up and he loves it. The premium SUVs have completely unjustifiable price tags at this point. It's really been building for the last 10 years or so, but at this point there is no reason to go that route.

I have a used Crew Cab, XLT, 4x4, 2016 F-150 with 19 miles on it. Thats your truck. Had minor transport damage, Ford bought it from the dealer, we bought it from Ford. You can buy considerably less than a new one.

I like the Toyota Tundra, but don't they get crappy gas mileage?
