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.

Yeah. There aren't many guys around I don't like but they are definitely in competition for acres.

I think the coolest thing about Hometeam is that I've literally seen him rep almost every major car brand based on someone's question or concern. Dude may sell Ford's, but I don't consider him biased.

My silverado drives as nice as any Cadillac I've ever been in and is just as quiet.

I don't know what's different on the z71 I'm driving but it's terrible compared.

I just so happen to have a ton of those, as well as the largest used car inventory near you. Lets make a deal, and you can be the 6th person in Iowa who has bought a car from me this year~
Actually, I am closer...in Olathe. Traverse? Silverado...we don't use flimsy Aluminum in our beds (see commercial)

Almost two weeks at this point.

I have a Mazda CX-5.

Decent space, has models with AWD and can get 30 mpg on the highway. Mazda makes pretty solid cars and aren't too expensive.

CX-5 is very nice. Oh, BTW the Equinox has the highest safety ratings in the class (tied with CRV) as well as J.D. Powers #1 in initial quality.....just sayin'.

Just watched a video on the 2018 Chevy Equinox. Looks good. Very tough segment.
