A very complete review with lots of pictures on the 2007 Chrysler Aspen SUV. Nice to see a favorable review for a change on a Chrysler product, even it it was not on a Nitro.
If you want a luxury or near-luxury truck, room for 7 or 8 passengers and a towing capacity of 8,750 lbs, then this is the SUV for you. There’s a hybrid version coming in the near-future that combines this HEMI engine with electric motors – interesting combo I must say – but it should improve the fuel economy. The Aspen is targeted at people that need a mini van or SUV, but just can’t bear the thought of owning one. I’ve always been staunchly opposed to three rows of seating in any vehicle other than a mini van, but the Aspen does a great imitation of a van – more along the size of a full-size van not a mini van. Being relegated to the third row in the Aspen is not the worst possible thing that can happen to an adult, it’s actually much better than average back there. Unfortunately it’s just like all other SUV’s when it comes to cargo capacity when all three rows are being utilized – it’s almost useless, but it’s still better than many other SUV’s on the market right now.
