Best SUV around 70K?

Range Rover Sport Supercharged
Cayenne S
Cayenne GTS (pre-owned)
X5
X6

I think RRSS is the best choice but some people told me that Range Rovers are not that reliable...
If you were to buy one, which one would you choose??

I have buy recently a Cayenne Twin Turbo and have to say that it is the best SUV a have ever owned . It runs almost as fast as my ex 335. Go to 6speedonline and read as much as you can and good hunting there's a lot of good ones out there. But remember buy the TT or you will regret it.

I love the way the latest X5 looks, especially with those upgraded wheels which come as an option, I believe.

Porsche screams the name 'sports car', but the X5 IMO is the best looking SUV in the world.

I don't know about your thoughts on maintenance issues but as he said above the Cayenne TT is a beast. If you look hard enough, one can be had w/i your budget. And not a miled out, beaten up one either.

The X5 is pretty dope.

The X6 is nice but the backseat sucks, it's an SUV that lacks practicality.

I like the X6 if you don't need 5 person seating. If you do, the x5 is the best driving SUV I've experienced. Range Rovers have some of the poorest reliability reputations out there. I've had friends curse out the fact they dropped $70k on a car, only for it to spend 3 weeks in the shop in the first 4 months of ownership.

Well the RR's are always in the shop. I can't tell you how often I see them when I am at the dealer for my Maserati. There is always RR's in there for things other than normal service. That being said, SO IS THE MASERATI. LOL But I do love the SC RR's.

Cayenne Turbo is awesome, if you can get past the looks, and the srt-8 is a beast if you can get past the fit and finish. Not much info on the x's as I have never driven one, but right now, sight unseen, I'd drive the X6M...lol
