Today, we all attended the Tulsa Auto Show at the Tulsa Expo Center/QuikTrip Center. With three young boys who will be growing up to be tall young men, we are going to need a vehicle with a real third row seat. This is the third row seat of a Chevy Tahoe which is the same as a GMC Yukon (or Cadillac Escalade). Look at Drew's legs, and he's just in third grade. Worse, look at Drew's expression, he's not happy imagining being stuck in the third row. The seat literally just sits on the floor. It's a complete joke. It's shouldn't even be allowed to be called a seat.
The newer Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave (generally the same vehicle) are all smaller than the Tahoe/Yukon but have better third row seats. Unfortunately, none of the three vehicles do much for us.
This is the third row seat of the Nissan Armada. It actually qualifies as a seat. In fact, the Nissan Armada Platinum is currently in the lead for our next vehicle. Although, we have no current plans on making a purchase, we just like to be prepared. The interior is appealing and the third row is easily accessible by the second row's flip-folding seats or by the easy removal of the second row center console.
The best third row seat in a non-extended version vehicle is in the Ford Expedition. If the picture wasn't a clear enough indication of the roominess and legroom of the Expedition's third row seat, just check out the expression on those three boys.
Unfortunately, the Ford Expedition's dash is straight out of the nineties. It is hideous. It evidences a complete disregard of soccer mom's in favor of beefy truck drivers. There's not a vehicle on the road more in need of a modern facelift. Hopefully a complete refresh will come before we need to purchase a new vehicle. We'd love to support the one American car manufacturer that didn't take a government bailout.
After looking at all the cars, the boys checked out some Cars movie characters. Landon loved Mater but wouldn't get any close than this to Mater's mouth.

Finally, no trip to the Expo would be complete without a picture with the Tulsa Driller.Posted by Don |
