Question Baby hauler

I need to add a family vehicle to the stable. The amount of stuff I'm starting to haul around for just a baby will only get worse, I imagine.

I'm on the fence between the the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland, 2011 Ford Explorer Limited, and maybe an older model year X5. It's gonna be leased and needs navigation for the wife. What say you fellow car lovers? We're gonna test drive this weekend. Any other recommendations now that you can see where I'm leaning?

I think the Ferrari FF will accomodate the Recaro baby seats. You may need a small HANS collar though...

See if you can find a low mileage Cayenne. Best SUV on the road for hauling (not too many) people.

Consider ML or MDX.
