Choices of SUV

My mom is in the market for a SUV, she currently drives a 03 Montana and since we kids are already grown up she doesn't really need it, but still wants to sit higher off the road. Plus we just lost our Grand Cherokee in an accident.

So what kind of SUV would you guys suggest.

She likes the X5 but 1) the new one is coming soon 2) all her friends drive it; so she doesn't want the same car


any thoughts or suggestions would be great. thanks

ps. SUV under 80K Canadian would be right

New Escalade, or Land Rover LR3. They wont set u back too much and both are top of the line vehicles. Also the new Envoy is very nice.

I can't stand the new Escalade... too much "bling".

I say the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Cadillac SRX, Infiniti FX or Lexus RX.

I know it might not be a 'luxury SUV,' but I am a big fan of the 4 runner limited. Get it fully loaded with nav and everything...


My problem with most luxury suv's is that is more luxury, and less SUV...

Who cares if her friends has the same car? I would get the new X5 myself. Our family car is a 04 X5 and it has been a great car with absolutely no problems. The tranmission is smooth and handling is great for an SUV (as well as the design) People say that it drives like a truck but the handling on the car has saved me a from a big accident few months ago.
