We're introducing a new feature on Autoblog called Favorite Five (catchy, eh?). Every week we'll produce a list of
our favorite five whatever, and you can rest assured our choices will be as subjective and biased as possible so we
invite you to let us know your own Favorite Five in the comments.
Well, the first snow hasn't yet fallen in Cleveland and I'm already waiting for Spring to come around. As soon as it does I'll be heading off on a roadtrip so now's the perfect time to start thinking about what chariot I'll choose. I present to you our Favorite Five Road Trippin' vehicles.
5. Chevy Corvette
We chose not to go with the Z06 because even a few extra miles per gallon on a cross-country trip can go a long way.

4. Dodge Magnum SRT-8
What a perfect blend of cargo room and grunt.

3. Lotus Elise
I'm a sadist and the Elise would be perfect for hitting as many track days around the country as possible.
2. Monaco Signature Coach
It's only $536,000 and allows me to bring along my PS2, plus it's a diesel and those get great gas mileage, right?
1. Volkswagen Jetta TDI
We're betting that constant highway driving will yield even better results than the EPA's estimated 42 mpg for the Jetta Diesel.
