Interesting read indeed. Best impressions, best off-road...but still rated 4.

But here is what I am struck by, they CRITIQUED the vehicles!!!!Now a days they say each one is the best in the world to please advertisers and loaners. 4x4 of the year will see a tiny little critique of something silly, otherwise its all good. In that article they really pointed out all the pluses and minuses.

I know, right? "The cup holder was too small to hold my 60 oz big gulp without spilling".

Or things like 4x4 knob positioning...ok, there may be better places to put it but come on. You also will see some comments about tires or low hanging front pieces...but that about ends it.
