turbo V8 eh... sounds interesting.. I don't think they'd put the V10 in there. 369ft-lbs @ 5000rpm won't do much in a 4500lbs truck

TT V8 would be awesome. Lotsa torque for lotsa weight. Front bumper looks like the X6 bumper.

Oh great, an M TRUCK. If that doesn't make the /M division look completely stupid, NOTHING will. As if being an SUV wasn't gay enough, now there's gonna be an /M version. Oh joy. **** I hate high-performance SUVs.

"M"X5 - People say the MX5 miata is a chick car...The BMW MX5 will be the ultimate chick car. Worst idea they have come up with yet. An X5 is as close to a real M car as the dumb ass driving down the road with the M badges stuck on his 318.

i'm guess it won't be a ///M car but it will be the performance model. remember the 4.8is X5?

Its a friggin TRUCK, and an ugly overpriced one at that. If they make an /M version of this POS, I'll never take the /M division seriously again. As if any of these gay-ass things will ever see offroad duty. Please.

Ian: your so damn right!!!

Couldn't agree more. I'm starting to not care about BMW's anymore because everything seems to be pure marketing for the masses.
