Last summer, the Ford people offered to loan us a Ford Taurus X to take a family road trip in; we'd just gotten back from a too-long family road trip to the Outer Banks, and wanted desperately to avoid any more road trips for a while, so I declined. The Jalopnik folks clearly have some trips to the storage unit to make, though, so they borrowed one, no problem.
Though it shares a platform with the Volvo XC90, the Volvo isn't sharing much of its SUV mojo; the Taurus X has lower ground clearance and a third row of seats [if only they were rear-facing]. The X is a station wagon that totally makes you look like a dad.
