To me the question is not why but why not which would be the dollars in fuel and if you can afford it, get the turbo because not only will you have additional power for towing, passing, steep grades and so on, but it is just a heck of a lot of fun to drive.
Originally I went looking for an AWD replacement for a 5.3L V8 Tahoe but after driving the NA model, I couldn't imagine owning it however the XT was there to save the sale for Subaru and if it weren't, I don't know what the wife would have right now but you can bet it wouldn't be the Foz and in the end, if you can swing the extra coin, get the XT and you won't regret it.
