Which One?

So I sold a car, and am looking for something else. Something that's obviously going to be new. So here are my choices...

2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track...top model...(wanted, but never got)
2011 Hyundai Sonata ( Newly designed, exterior compared to lexus, rear end compared to BMW and interior compared to Infiniti)
2010 Nissan Titan PRO-4X (could use for transporting bikes...to track and on trips)
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee ...
2010 Infiniti G37 Sport sedan

those are just a few I am looking at. I don't plan on any major modifications to any of these. So if you have ever dealt with these, let me know your thoughts and opinions on these choices. Feel free to add any other cars.

it doesn't seem like your looking at a single segment of vehicles. are you wondering whether you should get a track car, sedan or truck? or are these just random cars that you happen to want?

i couldnt help but notice your missing a camaro on that list

There isn't a camaro on the list for a few reasons.

This thread is more of a, if you've ever dealt with one of these vehicles, what are your impressions and thoughts of them.

I am also not partial to any sort right now. I will take a truck, I'd take an suv, or I'd just take a car for the simple daily driving purposes.

No thanks. I am not into those kinda jeeps. Never liked the style, the look, nor having no a/c. I live in Florida and it rains often. Thanks for the input though.

I just wouldn't buy a Korean car. They are not as reliable as American, European, or Japanese cars.

Not the Nissan Titan PRO- nothing significant has changed since 04. All the domestics have been updated since then and are better all around trucks. I give it credit for being relatively quick though due to it's final drive.

You already have some fast vehicles, why not something a little more Luxurious & Fast that can pull bikes?

Sierra Denali (4wd) w/ a 6.2L ~400HP + 4WD. (runs ~88mph at trap in 1/4 mile)

SRT8 GC (4wd) 6.1L~ 420HP & Tq (runs a 13- in the 1/4 mile I believe)

You could always look at Roush if you want a sweet F150, but I don't know know if they offer Warranty's. You can't just order them, I believe you have to send/drive them your F150.

Right now, I'm considering a Silverado w/ a 6.0 (vmax). I was really wanting the SRT8, but it gets **** for mileage (15 at best I believe). Compared to a few more for the Denali (I think you may be able to get Quadrasteer(((Fun for tracks)))), unfortunately, the Denali weights a lot more than the SRT8. That's why I think I'm getting the Silverado w/ 6.0.

It looks like you have a need for speed & power, that's why I mentioned those ^
If you're not caring that much about it, & more about pulling, you're probably going to want something with 4wd, you can go with the 5.3 in the Silverado & still hit about 20mpg on the highway.

Keep it on topic. You are the one that complained because you got all butt hurt and thought I was being all serious.

That's actually wrong. The Nissan Titan has received some upgrades this year.

I like the GMC Sierra. I was actually looking at one. Nice looking trucks. I have also looked into the Silverado. I have seen a few that have been dropped a few inches to give it the more aggressive look, and then supercharged. I myself like the Titan. I like how the rear end is more jacked up than the front. I also thought about a roush f150.

If I were to get a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, I'd wait till 2012 for the simple reason being, it's rumored to have 500hp.

The upside to pick up's is that I can haul my bikes. Put them right in the back of the bed and use tie downs for them. The downside to the SRT8 idea is that I would need a trailer. I'd probably end up going with a closed trailer, so I wouldn't have issues with thieves. However, love it, because the truck is quick, a 4x4 and can be used for whatever. The reason I mentioned the two sedans, is because I have usually had coupes. I figured, that it'd be nice to have a nice sedan for once that I could customize to my own liking. Like, new rims, better tires, interior...Thanks for your input man.
