    This article is just dumb. I thought there would be SUV's that are gas only. Not some idiot that is pushing sales of Toyota. Their are a number of other SUV's that that are cheaper without the hybrid that get better than 27 mpg. How about Hyundi or chevy equinox, Kia sorento. You don't even have to pay the additional 10K for the hybrid that will take you 5 to 7 years to recoupe.

    The headline reads "Top 5 Most Fuel Efficient SUV". When I think of an SUV, I don't think of a Nissan Joke/Juke. Then you have 3 out 5 that are hybrids. There is still a purpose for SUV. It would be nice to know the 5 most fuel efficient vehicles that can tow 3000lbs, and seat 5 or 7. On that list, the Toyota and Lexus can. The Ford (does only 1000lbs), Subaru (2400lbs), Nissan (a bike rack)

    So a bunch of hybrids...and the Juke--where are the CUV's? The Equinox, CR-V, Tuscon, etcetera, that all beat the Juke (also a car-based crossover), should have finished well ahead with 28 mpg or better. I know that is highway, but a dirver concerned with fuel mileage has no trouble exceeding the EPA average.

    My only disagreement is with the Juke, too small inside, short, and -well- too funky for any family with children older than 5yrs.
    The Ford Edge has only slightly less mpg# than the forester, but is more practical being larger and having much better performance.
    Sorry Burke, but your beloved Chrysler decided not to upgrade its crossover category outside of its front panel asthetics. So the caliber lineup, which was already behind when it was introduced, kept its dilapidated CV Trans and small cargo room.

    Totally irrelevent, farcical, politically correct pandering exercise by a questionable source.
    My friend owns a Lexus Hybrid and it's been nothing but trouble, a hunk of junk. If I want some economy in my SUV I'd look at a Patriot or Compass and know I have the Jeep reputation for dependability in my corner. I'll give up 1 or 2 MPG for capability anytime. Where is my consumers guide I have some fish to wrap.
