I don’t mind my minivan.
I’m happy when I push the little button and the doors open,
and when I can climb through row after row, buckling kids in with the doors closed so no one sees the crushed crackers and upended sippy cups littering the floor.
But I only love it when I’m driving.
Behind the wheel,
pretending it isn’t really a minivan, and I did not actually reach the point in my life where function COMPLETELY out-weighs fashion.
So when I was contacted by The Suburban Collection to participate in their Social Test Drive program I tried to play it as cool as a minivan-driving-mom can play it and answer calmly when they asked if I wanted to turn my minivan in for a long weekend with a GMC Yukon Denali XL.
Aside from the fact that I thought of sleeping in it for the weekend, here are a few of my favorite features:
Unbelievable amount of trunk space. Do you know how big a Choo Choo wagon is?
User-friendly dashboard that even I could figure out without having to spend the evening in a parking lot pushing buttons hoping they didn’t open the sun roof.
Very smooth ride (as in, all of my kids fell asleep and I could
tweet read a book while sitting in the back without getting carsick).
And it’s pretty, as in beautiful inside and out, gorgeous leather interior, sleek exterior.
Last but SO not least, here’s a look at the inside of our cracker-crumb-holder-on-wheels vs. our luxury-ride-for-a-weekend with a slight time lapse.
There may have been tears when we turned in the keys.
And they were not from the children.
