Nope; I was quoting from Quebec Dan's comment.
Ah, missed that one. In your position I don't know if I would want to go with a full size SUV, or a medium size. I'm guessing you could be a choice of V6s in the mediums. Medium should get better gas mileage, even if the same size engine. I'm with you on no benefit for premium, if you can get something uses regular instead. You seem to want 4 wheel drive, which is a wise move. Personally I'd be willing to settle for a medium, or even smallish 4 wheel drive pickup, with a camper shell, preferable one I could stand up in. But either way I would stock up the back section with a propane or cataletic heater (crack a window), a cot or pad, sleeping bag or blankets, some drinking water, and a stove to heat up food (possibly MREsiI) and water for tea or coffee. I'd toss in a composting toilet too. All this for just in case you got snowed in for a few days. I read once about a hunter that got snowed in while hunting way down a dirt track. He would get up, eat, then shovel snow, move truck, repeat until noon, noon meal, then shovel, then supper, relax a bit, then sleep. Repeated this for I can't recall how many days, but do recall over a week. They had given him up for dead, then he showed up. Which reminds me, might want a shovel too. You've likely already thought of all this, but I'm a firm believer in just in case, so told you, just in case.
