Interesting perspective that I actually agree with....

But I think it'll make sense if an individual only wanted one vehicle who needs AWD during winter season/off-roading, occasional hauling capabilities, occasional track days, and some road kill drag race actions...

Straightline
4.1 seconds to 60mph with a 1' rollout (which I think is pretty standard for magazine tests)

That's absolutely sick for an 'SUV' and the same 0-60 as they achieved with a Z06 (much harder to launch).

Although the Z will be far, far ahead by the 1/4 mile.

Thanks for the Edmunds link WAY. It's been added to my 'Favorites'. First mainstream road test I've seen concentrating exclusively on the X5///M. Fantastic video of the actual tests also.

C&D was pretty impressed too, with the X6M; in the Oct issue. The road test isn't up on their site yet.
