<B>Acura MDX - 3.5</B> Wow, an Acura SUV that looks good! Gotta give THAT some credit.<br><B>Acura RDX - 3 </B> Looks better than previous Acuras but still oh-so-boring.<br><B>BMW X5 - 3</B> Like an old one, but not quite as ugly. Territory is a far better vehicle. Costs half as much too. Credit allowed for innovation, but it isn't enough. And the dashbord - God!<br><B>Chevrolet Suburban - 3.5</B> A good effort for a car that size. Looks fairly okay too.<br><B>Chevrolet Tahoe - 3.5</B> Yeah yeah. Same thing. Only with 2 meters less.<br><B>Ford Expedition - 3.8</B> A great looking vehicle, and a good attempt of updating the obsolete large SUV market in the USA.<br><B>Land Rover LR2 - 4.25 </B> Its bigger, stronger, nicer, better than before. Not the greatest car ever, but it's worthy of it's badge. And it's better than anything else in its segment.<br><B>Mercedes-Benz GL450 - 4</B> Pretty good vehicle, but Big V8's attatched to a steering column moiunted automatic shifter isn't my idea of a cool Mercedes, and it offers little in the way of versatility and practicality. Its a bit... American....

Acura MDX-<B>3</B> a great suv ruined by an ugly grille and 3 billion buttons<br>Acura RDX-<B>2.5</B> kinda boring, old design after we saw a concept like 3 years ago, and nothing really new.<br>BMW X5-<B>4</B> very evolutionary from the predecessor, but if it aint broke...<br>Chevy Suburban-<B>4.5</B> achieves its purpose as an SUV for large families<br>Chevy Tahoe-<B>4</B> it might have saved gm.<br>Ford Expedition-<B>4</B> facelift makes it look more appealing and should give chevy a good fight.<br>Land Rover LR2-<B>4.5</B> The baby looks like the elder siblings now <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Mercedes GL450-<B>4</B> Very good looking and quite roomy.

BMW X5 - 4.5<br>Acura RDX - 4<br>Acura MDX - 3<br>Mercedes-Benz GL450 - 3<br>Chevrolet Tahoe / Saburban - 3<br>Land Rover LR2 - 2.5<br>Ford Expedition / EL - 1.5<p>Hands down the BMW X5 is the winner, great chassis, great performance, now seats 7, now has more cargo room than the X3, sure its a pricy piece of metal but for the amount of stuff it delivers, its a sure champion. The RDX at under 35k, a turbo I4 & its array of standard safety & luxury features is a wonderful thing (add in amazing build quality & styling from a comic book to that). Though the MDX in my eyes looks like the ugly Brady Bunch sister (well..i guess all of them are ugly), is a wonderful purchase, its an RDX with more power, more room & more capabilities, now if that recent rumor that Honda wanted to add V8s to its Acura lineup is true.. -The GL450 won Motor Trends Truck of the Year award; not here. The ML350 is 15k cheaper, performs better, has the same packaging (only cheaper) yet it seats 2 less is a more erutide buy. Both of GMs full-size Chevy SUVs are the best ever, i personally love the new styling, but it just doesnt strike as gold to me. Thank goodness Ford got rid of the Rover powerplant & the Freelanders rubbish reliability, the LR2 is a massive improvement, but like the Tahoe/Burb, just doesnt do it for me. The Expedition is a slight improvement, although does not have a chance over the ones listed above<p><B>Guys lets include in a brief explanation for our choices if we can</B><br> <br>
