It's pretty easy to build an SUV that's reasonably quick in a straight line. That's essentially what BMW built the X5 to be. It's considerably harder, however, and it takes much better engineering to build one that weighs significantly less than both its predecessor and the competition, can take a corner, has true off-road capabilities and can tow nearly 8000lbs. That's essentially the difference between the two 2011 cars. Both good cars, but you pay your money and you take your choice. If you can handle the higher cost of entry, the Cayenne is the much more capable vehicle.
