well, this pretty much is at the top of my most wanted list for SUV's. escalade, you had a nice 3 month run in the market. Although the Range Rover is still pretty cool. DAMN, how cool would it be to be rich?

I like the exterior but in some shots it looks wussy and in others it looks hot. The interior is alright but all that black plastic, no matter how good of quality, looks better suited in a non-luxury SUV. It seems like designers ran out of ideas and just decided to throw black plastic there. The wood does look good, though.

nope. BMW invented HUD and it is a revolutinary invention. it borrows from fighter jet technology and allows the driver to simply refocus his eyes without taking them off the road - it is estimated that this could save countless lives each year in the USA. BMW is to be commended for leading the automotive industry with breakthrough technology and bringing it to everyday people, something no other automotive manufacturer has ever done. ever.

BMW - A Company of Ideas!!!

I could have gotten HUD on my Aztek.....in 2002 even

i think HUD debuted in like the 89 Grand Prix or something. GM did hud way back when. Just like the 85 riv had the touch screen panel.

To be fair BMW of NA, perhaps more aware of the GM crossovers, merely states that the X5 is the "Only vehicle in its segment with … Head-Up Display"—perfectly correct, as the only other two companies to have embraced the technology do not offer it in their X5 competitors (FX35/45 and Cadillac SRX).

I really like the choice of interior colors, but the rest of it just makes me yawn. Nothing particularly special about it.

And just because a company bases their SUV off a RWD car doesn't mean it's not a crossover.

More details here; lemme do a FlyBold...

Arguably the first SUV that put the emphasis on "Sport", the BMW X5 has been redesigned for 2007. The new X5 is 7.4 inches longer and 2.4 inches wider than its predecessor. The extra length allows optional 3rd row seats. Engine choices include a 260-bhp 3.0L inline-6 (X5 3.0si) or a 350-bhp 4.8L V-8 (X5 4.8i). Both engines are mated to 6-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmissions. BMW claims 0-60 mph in 6.4 seconds (X5 4.8i) and 7.8 seconds (X5 3.0si). All models are equipped with xDrive AWD. New safety & handling enhancements include Active Roll Stabilization, Dynamic Traction Control, rearview camera, and Adaptive Drive. All X5 model have run flat tires. BMW also added standard iDrive on the new X5.

The active sway bars should help improve ride quality and off-road performance, things that the current X5 can benefit from.

This is the first 7-seat SUV that doesn't look motherly.
