try the Tundra, I am also quite Tall and struggle. I have an older Highlander that fits me great, new ones are a no go. The new 4Runners fit me(I thought) but the curves of the seat bother my back because they hit me in all the wrong places. Avoid sunroofs in toyotas the headroom is gone. I am going to look at a ford F150 /250 next as I do not like the current tundra body styles. Also consider Subaru Forester I fit in the older models pretty well.

Many legroom specs are measured with the seat set for a 90th- (or 95th, I can't remember exactly) percentile male, not with the seat all the way back. If the spec is under 41.5 inches, this is almost always the case. So unfortunately you can't find cars that will fit you using the official legroom specs.

IIRC Subarus are roomier than others. But if there's a car you think you'd like, I wouldn't rule it out without actually sitting in it.
