dad wants a new car for work.

Right now he drives a Lexus LX470 (+100,000 miles on it) and he wants to trade it for a new truck or SUV for under $50,000. he carries a lot crap in the back too so there needs to be space. and its going to be driven everyday so i told him to get a toyota thundra but he doesn't like those.

i don't know what else to look at. any ideas?

He drives a Lexus and doesn't want a Tundra?

The only other trucks I can think of are Nissan Titan, Ford F-150, and Chevy Silverado. I don't think the Titan's been upgraded for a while though.

there was a video clip of a test by Ford and it tested the F150, Tundra, and a couple others ( i think Titan and Ram?). It was the one with the host of "Dirty Jobs" and the F150 scored better in all the categories.

He was thinking about a Hummer H2. i don't think you can get a new one for under $50,000, right?

After negotiating you mean right? I saw one 4 days ago identical to your description with beautiful colored leather (terracotta-like) and the price was $48,000 with out ttl... even Avalanches cost $48,000

If he wants something comfortable, I'd say Hyundai Veracruz.

I second the Tundra and Veracruz.

Ford says Ford is the best? That was surprising.
