I wonder if the Turbo would do any better with its air suspension and greater horsepower.

You'd think that the 2 were matched properly. The X5 doesn't have an air suspension. The complaints are likely inherent in the design.

It almost seems like they preferred the long-in-the-tooth ML55 over the Cayenne S. They're probably a bunch of miffed Porschephiles there... get over it already!

I'm sure it would............as far as Sport SUV's go the Turbo has to be the best of them all. The 4.6is has no off road ability whatsoever. The Porsche Cayanne Turbo excels both on and offroad. (from what I've read)
