Not bad for an SUV that gets an EPA rating of 32 mpg on the highway. If you want to go for the top-of-line trim, you can get an SLT2 with leather seating, a Pioneer sound system, a sunroof and other amenities for $29,250.
How does this compare with certain competitors? The slightly pricier 2009 Ford Edge starts at $26,635, while the 2009 Dodge Journey undercuts both with a beginning MSRP of $20,925. It should be noted that neither the Edge nor the Journey is rated higher than 25 mpg on the highway.
