We came out of a BMW X5 4.4 and couldn't be happier. Performance is the same, ride is sporty but not as stiff; we pretty much got this thing loaded and got a free Garmin Nav unit as well. Ended up with the V8 because we didn't feel the 6 cyl could do the job. Fuel economy in 600 miles of in- town driving around 16.5 mpg; pretty good for a heavy car. The biggest thing for us was keeping the same size SUV and getting more interior room and with the 3rd seat down, there is plenty for her and the baby's stuff. We got ours at the end of the month and after negotiating, they practically gave this thing away. Get the Executive pack with different leather and the blindspot info deal; worth it.
Executive package. Blind spot info system. Dyna-audio stereo, 19 in wheels. Ember Black metallic paint
Diesel! Is anyone listening? Integrate a factory nav unit that's not so expensive! The Garmin is great though. Power telescoping steering wheel, Panorama sunroof
