Both are WEAK. Getting a 3.6 for the small increase in "performance" while getting a large decrease in gas mileage didn't make sense to me. If I wanted the 3.6's gas mileage I woudl have gotten a real SUV.
Yes. Nail on the head. For the cost associated in getting a LIMITED 3.6 especially, there are better choices for that type of money. OP mentions he is getting the LIMITED model.
We have been pleasantly surprised with our 2.5. We traded in our V8 Sequoia for out 2011 and don't miss it a bit except for the seating loss.
