    About to do the same for my escape but looking heavily at the F150. I also like the edge alot.
    Warning - once you drive a truck you'll never go back to a car. I'm done my 3 year lease this November and will likely buy out my 2014 F-150 as the km's are very low.

        To add some perspective on what we need.

        Most of our kids have moved away now. 18 year old daughter going to school in the fall. Our 22 YO Autistic son will likely be with us until we're no longer around. We have Yellow Lab dog and in 2 weeks we're getting another.

        My family has a cottage. We go up a lot in the summer. We need space for dogs, sometimes a kid or two and/or a friend of kid and all the stuff (food, clothes, some gear) we need to haul. It is shared with other family and is also water access so when we go we take everything we need. Can't really leave much there. Food gets used/tossed. No place to keep extra clothes and any gear if left invariably gets used / damamged by someone.

        My wife works for me and sometimes uses her car as a delivery vehicle. It depends how much there is. If needed I do drive a Silverado and we can use that when we need even more space.

        Mostly she likes a vehicle that she can get in and out of comfortably with her bad knees. She likes a vehicle with some size but not as big as a 1/2 ton truck which she doesn't mind driving but hates parking.

        With her Traverse once in a while when we do have to move 6 people it is convenient to have all that seating. They claim it seats 7 but you are not putting 3 adults in the back row.

        We're also past "mini-van" days. Had our share. Probably not going there again unless we see something special in a Honda Odyssey.

        So there's a little more info.
        We have similar needs, kids out or at university, cabin in mountains, two dogs. Friend owns a Ford dealership and I am likely going the Explorer route, likely loaded with all the toys. The deal he is gonna give me makes it possible. My 2007 G35 at 135k is still is awesome shape and doesn't cost much, but we need the hauling, and gave the '04 Sienna to our daughter. She needs it to haul her partner's stand up bass. Wifes' 2008 Volvo v50 wagon is just too small but she loves driving it and won't drive anything larger.

        An old friend, who has owned Cayenne's, Range Rovers and BMW x5s currently drives a Hyundai Sante Fe and loves it. I rented one in Palm Springs last fall and it was awesome. Need the sport version if you want the third row seats. Back seats very roomy.

        My Dad bought a 2010 Nissan Rogue as a vehicle for his place in Palm Springs. The 4-cylinder engine is a little weak, but cruised OK on the I-10. Got a little buffeted by the winds in the valley. Upgraded suspension may help stability, but don't know. Good room for storage and the back seats are very comfortable legroom wise for 6 footers.

            Sounds like a heckuva deal! How was the interior room compared to the Explorer?

              There have been so many times when I said... "I wish I had a truck" that I figured it's about time. I almost traded in the Flex on one but the Flex is such a huge hit in the family (my wife loves it) we grabbed another since it can tow, carry 7 people, etc).

              I don't need anything fancy and since it's usually just me and the dogs... sometimes the kids if I grab them from school... I don't even need the supercrew. Hoping to get to the dealership next week.

                I got talked into it by a buddy who drives one. When our family grew to 4 I thought we were headed for a minivan. He explained to me that vans are people movers and we only had 4 people. Our problem is we had a lot of crap to move, and nothing moves crap better than a pickup. It's actually been a dream family vehicle for us.
