- "A metal cage soldered to a wheel chassis isn't everybody's first choice of car, which is why Canis decided to take their signature off-road car model, encase it in some flimsy bodywork and re-market it as a "Family SUV.""
- ―Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.
This SUV's design appears to be inspired by that of the second generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is shown in the hood and rims. The front bumper looks to be both from the pre and post facelift models, while having a lower brush guard from a 2007-2013 Volvo XC90. The main body line, wheel arches, and greenhouse area are from the third generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, while the front fascia seems to be inspired by the third generation Nissan Pathfinder/second generation Nissan Frontier and the Pontiac Torrent.
The Seminole is an average SUV in every way, both in design and performance. The top speed is average for a vehicle of its class, but acceleration is mediocre, leading to the Seminole feeling sluggish and heavy during normal driving. Handling is a bit better, as the vehicle does not suffer from any oversteer or understeer, and it is very stable at high speeds. Like its real life counterpart, it does well off-road, thanks to its AWD drivetrain. The Seminole has a semi-stiff suspension which helps it stay level when cornering, but it has just enough travel to make the vehicle drive smoothly on uneven terrain. The Seminole is powered by a small V8 engine, but gives the car a boost in its acceleration. Its acceleration time is noticeably quicker than direct competitors like the Cavalcade or Baller.
