I posted an earlier thread in regards to three particular models of vehicles that we were looking into purchasing. The 7.3L Excursion was easily at the top of the top, however we are beginning to have our doubts about that vehicle. We drive less than 8k per year, which alot of people say wouldnt be enough to keep the 7.3L Motor "happy" as Diesels are designed for longer trips, high mileage etc. In an effort to further educate myself on ALL large model SUVs that are on the USED market these days, I am asking for what you believe to be the best of the best in that category.

SUV MUST BE LARGE
Must have Third Row
Under $14k Used Price

Vehicles I am not interested in whatsoever, would be the Land Rover, Chevy TrailBlazer, Chevy Uplander, Honda CRV/Pilot-These models do not interest us and are too small.

Now whats your top SUVs that fill these Requirements??

I listed the Sequoia as i read good reviews about it. However, those do Not appear to be a LARGE Suv IMO. Also i hadnt heard anyone write anything in regards to the mid 2000 expeditions or navigators. Were those reliable vehicles?

I vote for a used Excursion Diesel. Its like driving a tank around town. You can always get the petrol version. I second a Suburban or an Expedition extended version.

I don't think that should be an issue. I just sold a 2007 Chevy 2500 diesel with 45,000 miles on it, so I drive even less than you do, and nearly all city. I bought it when I thought I'd be trailering something, did that three times and sold that car and trailer, so for the next 6 and a half years, it's just been my daily city driver (I work from home a lot). I never had any issues with it even though my average trip was probably 30 to 40 miles each way. Still ran fantastic and pulled like a beast.
