Default wifey wants a new (newer) SUV

We have run the expedition pretty hard and it lasted us 130K with minimal probrlems and its still going.
But sometime by the end of the year we are going to upgrade to a new one. I VW makes a diesel SUV (toureg2 or something) but it looked a tad too small. She doesnt like the liberties.

so who else makes one. I know AUDI makes one she really likes and has the same motor as the VW, anyone else make one?

i have seen one of those vw suv's up close, a customer had one. it was SWEET. i am not into vw's at all, but that thing was nice. he said it had plenty of power and plenty of room. he pulled a nice camper with it too. wouldn't tell me the price, but said he could have put a MUCH bigger garage up if he didn't buy that.
