Finally settled on a used SUV “The Force” lol

I had been shopping for a new to me SUV. I was torn between trading my trusty low miles 2012 S80 in and buying a CPO Cayenne, X5, XC90 or keeping the Volvo sedan and just buying a older 1998-2010 SUV outright. My budget either way was to spend no more then $10k out of pocket.

Towing abilities were key as I want to tow a boat and at times a travel trailer. (7-8k towing a target.

I ended up buying a 2003/98 LaForza. One of last 5 built and one of three built with a GM 6.0L Vortec and a Whipple SC. 52k miles Cali car. It was delivered yesterday and I am in awe by the power/pickup. All in with shipping $9800.
