Imagine a basketball squad and two benchwarmers jumping out of one vehicle with dibs on the next game. It was a sensation operating the 2011 Infiniti QX56 4WD during the Thanksgiving holiday. Yet, it was equally as pleasurable jumping in the new Scion tC after multiple fill-ups and cash set-backs from the QX56’s 12 to 14 miles a gallon (city) earned during my 7-day stint with Goliath.  Little ole David will take me over 30 mph (highway) and I probably won’t need to see a gas station while he’s in my occupancy. Goliath did allow me to escort seven at a time from the kids wanting fast food (didn’t get it) to the ladies going shopping on Black Friday to the boys hanging out on the court. Forty family members were in town, so the truck stayed pack. But comfortably with its bucket seats and luxury accoutrements. Styling is hit or miss, yet better than the prior version which was basically a juiced Armada. Now it’s reminiscent of a Toyota Sequoia. Take your pick. A $72,560 fully loaded Infiniti behemoth or a $21,417 loaded Scion. Both have justification in life.
