Okay, I know, ozone-killing, econobox-crushing SUVs have a bad rap these days. Well, here's one with a not so bad rap, if we disregard the aforementioned killing and crushing: the 2004 Ford Expedition XLT 4x4. It's full sized, to say the least, with a potential 110.5 cu. ft. of cargo space, plus the ability to tow over 8000 lbs. Possibly its best attribute, however, is that it's not annoying to drive, with a pleasant cockpit and four-wheel independent suspension that provides an impressive level of comfort. The fuel economy is a lousy 13/17 mpg, and it starts at $37,765, but if your lifestyle requires the frequent hauling of oversized stuff, it may be the way to go.
