i personally like the x5 myself, the cheyanne is ugly IMO, but a better quality i suppose. I'm lookin at the new SUV from pontiac {torrent} looks pretty good...

depends on what she needs an SUV for. She have kids? Does she enjoy the out doors?
Personally I'd stay away from those overpriced imports. Jeep all the way man. If she'* thinking Porsche or beemer she can spring for a Jeep Rubicon, get the Unlimited package and set it on a four inch lift and throw a set of 33" M/TRs under that puppy. But that'* just me

out of the three... I'd choose the porsche turbo. Fun and fast.

If it were me though with a budget for one of those, I'd purchase a suburban and car trailer. I like the amount of space, person capacity and the number of bonneville parts you can fit into one. And the trainer... we all know what goes on there...
