THE SELL: A minivan that can handle the mountains.
THE TEST: With all-wheel drive and traction control; a top-of-its-class 6.6 inches of ground clearance; and a 3.5-liter, 265-hp V6, the Sienna handled snow, ice, and rutted dirt roads like a crossover half its size. And then there's the cargo hold: seating for seven or 150 cubic feet of room for gear. On a camping trip to Rocky Mountain National Park, it fit six people and all our bags, tents, and food, with room left over for firewood.
THE VERDICT: Good luck finding an AWD vehicle better suited for hauling a serious amount of toys and people into the hills. $31,330; 16 mpg city/22 hwy;
