This definitely does not have as much overall room as my 2001 Chevy Tahoe LT. But, this is a mid size, much more fun to drive and much more manueverable, plus better gas mileage, and doesn't get lost in a parking lot full of Tahoes/Denalis/GMCs.
Also, it fits a lot more than my wife's Cayenne, and is more comfortable, with a smoother ride, but not the same handling performance.
I got a cargo net, so I can pack the cargo area up to the ceiling. I am definitely not using the third row as much as I thought, but that's the case with most third row vehicles. If you plan on using the third row full time, you're probably better off with a suburban or a mini van. I figured this would be my last chance to get a decent fun vehicle before I go the mini van route in a few years... I am dreading that day. Hopefully SUVs will be more practical by then. But I am so glad I did not get a minivan this time around.
