    Volvo xc60 or v90
    Or
    Merc E sedan or wagon
    Or
    Cayenne turbo

    Some certified pre-owned cars have better warranties than brand new.

    Yes, I love euro cars.

    I thought you might be crazy, but there are in fact a number of used ats-v's available in the low 40's.

    I'll go 2017 Raptor. With all the rebates and discounts my very specific local dealership is offering on trucks they're basically giving them away for free.

    Correct but really they are low trouble motors once "bulletproofed" and left mainly stock except for maybe an intake, exhaust, and a tune geared to MPG and not high HP.

    Much rather have that over the 7.3L after owning a 7.3L

    Probably because they lose half their value in the first year of ownership

    That's why I put the CTS vsport on the list. Similar engine but much better interior and a back seat that adults will be comfortable in. And pretty fast with just a tune. Low 12s or better are pretty easy to get out of them.

    When I was buying a car I put the ATS on the list but just couldn't get over the interior too. Even the CTS is similar unless you get all the options from what I've seen in my searches. I do see the Vsports are coming down in price pretty nicely, those are some good looking cars.
