Merry Christmas from CarGurus! We Think Santa Drives a…

Santa's sleigh

As Santa returns from his annual trip around the world, let’s pause for a moment and wonder what the big fella drives upon his return to the North Pole.

Certainly the reindeer and sleigh get put away until next Christmas Eve and Kris Kringle enjoys his time off showing off some well-earned wheels.

But what would his vehicle of choice be? Surely it has to have all-wheel drive. And be red. And big enough to hold Santa, the Mrs. and maybe an elf or two.
