Certainly much easier to use an electric motor for rwd than run a prop shaft.

Flex - If memory serves the Flex is being discontinued or has been discontinued as of 2020.

Sienna -

Odyssey - Not AWD but the right pick.

Explorer -

Traverse -

Pilot -

Suburban -

Yukon / Tahoe -

Whatever the Subaru stretched Outback is called -
I live in the mountains, awd is a must.

You mean the Previa?

Fun looking and seeing the "standard" was around 150-160HP for a 4L V6, where 30 years later it's 280 for a 3.5L.

Agreed.

Aerostar was a triangle stuck to a rectangle.

Previa was rounded, and always looked front heavy to me.

Maybe not the best word choice but it always looked to me like the roof was oddly tall and bulging upward.

And that Mazda looks downright modern compared to the rest of those things.
