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.

Consider a Honda Ridgeline? A little bigger than a Colorado, a whole lot better equipped. Kinda an awesome vehicle for someone that would love a mid size SUV but wants some benefits of a truck.

Might as well buy something like an F-150 that does everything a ridgeline does better for the same money~

Might as well keep pimpin' Fords and being the salesman that you are. This is a line of shit. If you're going to buy an F150, you might as well buy a Silverado, Tundra, or Ram and get a man's truck.

Traverse is the same as an Acadia or Enclave FWIW. Wife and I just hate the look of the Traverse vs Acadia/Enclave

I'm not a salesman. I am a professional with 15 years in this industry under my belt, working for Ford, Nissan, Hyundai, and an independent dealer, as both a salesperson and a service advisor. I eat, sleep, breathe vehicles, I touch, train, and learn about them, all day every day. I have Honda, a Pontiac, and a Ford in my driveway. I calls em like I sees em regardless of brand.

As for this idea about F-150s; Ford makes the best truck on the road period. Silverado is close, Ram is farther away, and Tundras are hanging out way at the back of the pack after Titans~

Compared to a Ridgeline, An F-150 has more room, more power, more tow capacity, more utility, more off road capability, better ride, better bed size, similar fuel mileage. And, because Ridgelines are pricey and hold value well, they are also comparably priced as a full size truck.

The other brand trucks don't have near as much rear leg room as an F-150, nor the fuel mileage, but they pretty much beat out Ridgelines at the same price point as well.

My silverado has 40 inches of leg room in the back seat. And I average over 16 mpg.

21 on the highway.

But those eco boosts have plenty of power and I wouldnt call an f150.a girls truck.

What's your ratio on this site of people trying to pilfer info from you and price shop you versus people who actually trust you to do business in good faith and take care of them? This post tells me that you're a pro, and people who buy from you are better off for it. However I know that lots of folks here want the power of the planet to get something for nothing, or are just generally skeptical of sharing personal info with this group. I can't imagine you're coming out ahead with your time here versus just selling on Facebook, or using whatever medium you use to create your own leads.

Love my F150 Super Crew cab. When I had two dogs, 70-80 lbs Australian Cattle dogs they fit great in the back. When hauling people you can do 5 with plenty of room. My FIL says it is like a limo with the leg room in the back seat. I also recommend Weather Tech mats. I get around 12-13 in the city and 19 on the highway.
