+1. Hell, if this were my quiver, I'd bonfire the brand new Prius cause it would be a curbside queen and never get used.

Is the JGC a tow vehicle, kid hauler, other?

OK...last question...Why are you getting a Jeep?

If you commute with the Prius and have the A8 for fun...what's the Jeep for? Off-roading? Long family trips? If you're putting that few miles on the jeep...why not get the V8!?

Yip. The JGC is for trips/family hauling/off roading and eventually will be used for light towing. I mentioned previously that both the JGC and the A8 are obviously large vehicles. So, for city driving, getting around town and quick errands, the Prius comes in handy. And in city driving, it gets better gas mileage than on the highway, at 52mpg.

Not bad.
