    motor trend's comparison test of 4 fullsize SUVs from july 2004 issue:how 4 leather-lined luxo-'utes really measure up-not in suburbia,but in realm they were built for:Death Valley
    (the cadillac escalade was not invited because its 4WD transfer case doesn't offer low range-a big advantage for serious off-roading)


    4 INFINITI QX56 AWD (5.6L V8 305hp)
    hot:brawny powertrain,capacious cabin,lowest price
    not:structural shimmies,squeaks and rattles,unrefined materials
    verdict:potent and feature-packed,but way too unbuttoned for its premium sticker price


    3 LINCOLN NAVIGATOR Ultimate 4x4 (5.4L Vb 300hp)
    hot:pushbutton everything,rippling V8,effective AWD system
    not:enormous mass,cowl shake,minimal ground clearance
    verdict:surprisingly capable for such a hedonistic giant


    2 LEXUS LX470
    hot:gorgeous cabin,conspicuous refinement,off-road dexterity
    not:low tow rating,tight 3rd row,wants more horsepower
    verdict:a superbly built,extremely competent SUV that impresses despite its old age


    1 LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER HSE
    hot:lusty BMW V8,sport-sedan handling,standard-setting offroad performance
    not:awful navigation system,no 3rd row,lofty sticker
    verdict:a peerless combo of luxury,on-road refinement and off-road mastery
