    Great looking SUV! But just 7 inches of road clearance? Can that be? Its looks are deceiving. I even thought it might be full framed.
    The off-roading crowd will be disappointed….

    @dragin, I don’t think it is aimed at the off-roading folks.
    The 4wd drivetrain is probably only suits slippery highways or icy driveways. It is best compared to the likes of Honda CRV and Nissan X-Trail, SUV wannabes best suited for soccer moms or grocery runs ;)
