Apples to oranges. The domestic iron mentioned are trucks. Built on a truck frame with a body bolted on -- lots of weight, but also lots of capability. They are intended as cargo and people haulers -- and they do that just fine thank you. They also start right up after leaving them in a snow covered airport parking lot for two weeks. If my old Tahoe got better gas mileage I would still be driving it -- great truck, incredible a/c system, and exceptional reliability and reasonable repair/maintenance costs with no part shortage problem. Nothing imported really compares to the capability of the XL/Suburban/Excursion/Expedition class IMHO.
