Not some sissy car-based crossover, the Borrego is a brawny, body-on-frame lad capable of towing up to 7500 lb with the optional 337-hp, 4.6L V-8 (the base 3.8L V-6 pulls up to 5000 lb). We have the loaded-up, 4WD V-8 mated to a smooth-shifting, six-speed automatic with a manual mode. It's a solid freeway cruiser, with more than enough power for any pavement-pounding situation. Steering feel is nicely weighted and direct, and the brakes are strong, stopping the 4872-lb vehicle in 130 ft from 60 to 0 mph. - Mike Floyd
