The 2011 BMW X5 xDrive35d sport ute is a great family cruiser. It has good handling and supple suspension to handle the curves or over the Interstate concrete slabs. The 265-bhp, 3.0-liter, twin-turbo diesel inline-6 has lots of torque to offer for passing. And don't let the size fool you. It can swallow a family of four weekend gear with no problems–to my surprise. I averaged about 24 mpg over 300 miles. The car can go about 450 miles in one tank! Sticker price on the car is about $66,000, with EPA rating of 18 city and 26 highway.
