I have seen a few examples of the F Pace running around the area. Very nice looking vehicle. 5300lb towing would be enough for me. Not sure if I would go with the 4-cyl diesel or the Supercharged gas motor. I would want to drive an example of each first. I like the fact that it has the trailer specific stability like the Treg. My biggest concern would be wiring up my Tekonsha P3. There doesn't seem to be any information on setting up a brake controller on the F Pace. If the VW / court proceedings and buy back take long enough, maybe there will be more information out there by then.
Ridgeline / Pilot / MDX might all be workable as well, although the Ridgeline will be a squeeze to fit in my garage.
Used Cayanne S or new gas Treg would be on the list. The Treg might be a good way to go to avoid the tax on the trade in value.
Colorado / Canyon might be OK, but would want to drive one first. Sounds like the ride and NVH might not make for a very nice vehicle to take trips in. Also pretty much too big for the garage.
Too bad the Q5 is only rated for 4400lb. That is a little light and frankly I despise the local Audi stealer-ship.
Best case for me is still keeping the Treg TDI. Nothing else is everything I want in a vehicle, although the F-Pace may be very close.
