You cannot compare the SRT because there is nothing to compare it to, it is the quintessential muscle/brute of all SUVs now with class.
Another hater,if you don't care don't respond to the post.

With the price of the SRT moving up it is inevitably going to get more comparisons with the uber SUV's. The mags have been comparing the SRT to the higher priced SUV's since 2006. Now The SRT has the interior and luxury goods to compete. The thing I hated most about my 2007 SRT Jeep was the cheap materials and finish of the interior.

Since I can't get an SRT I have no choice but to look at the other muscle lux utes.

I don't think the others are more luxurious. I do believe they are more refined which they should be given the price. I think the SRT has a lot of value for sure but if you can afford more it doesn't hurt to look.

Re: Two days in a BMW X5 50i

Mangoe, I'm not a hater, just having a little fun!

Regarding comparing to other uber suvs, here in oz atleast , the SRT represents best value for money hands down, nothing in the market comes close, opinions will obviously vary depending on where on earth you live. We don't have any 13 X5 50i's in oz, we do have the 4.4 v8 version which sells for $200,500.00. I cannot see the $110,000.00 premium on a suv that may just have an edge on the SRT in terms of build quality but nothing else. You could buy two SRT's for the price of the BMW and have change to supercharge one of them, but then again why would you, the SRT is quicker then both models.

As said, as many avid Jeep SRT fanatics would agree, "you cannot compare the SRT because there is nothing to compare it to, it is the quintessential muscle/brute of all suv's", built in a country that knows only to well how to build real muscle.

Re: Two days in a BMW X5 50i

Guys this wasnt a poke at the Jeep, if anything it is a big compliment. If you dont think the SRT engineers are chasing some of the fundamentals and aesthetics of the X5 and the Cayenne you are sorely mistaken. I didnt think anyone would take offense of me posting this here and I figured some people might even appreciate it. Im always looking for a comparison to the Jeep, problem is there isnt enough competition. We own the best sport SUV for the money PERIOD. The X5 I drove isnt faster 0-60 and has a slower 1/4 mile time so you sensitive guys can take a deep breath

BTW, bill_de....you dont have to send me PM's to say that you think my post is out of place. My post was for SRT OWNERS who want to know how their rig stacks up with the higher priced competition.

And just so you know.... There is no BMW in my driveway, there is this...

Re: Two days in a BMW X5 50i

Thanks for the post. Like many others, I like to compare my rig with the competition. Your post reinforces the fact that, for the money, the SRT is the best value on the market. For ex, I drove my old man's RR sport, which clocks in around 70k (vs 62k for my '12), and wouldn't even consider "trading up".

Thanks again for the post...

Re: Two days in a BMW X5 50i

Nice post for a nice looing rig. Im not a huge BMW guy, never owned one,drove a few M3's from different eras, but I like the newer X5's with the fatboy's out back. They look and sound good and Im sure overall are great quality vehicles.

I drove a range rover sport as well and was not very impressed by the drive.
Too heavy and not very sporty at all.
