The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has as much seating and off-road ability as the X5, and to some eyes, it's more attractive than the BMW.
The Cadillac Escalade brings more glitz than any of these SUVs; also, its smooth powertrain is available in two-mode hybrid form.
The Porsche Cayenne seats just five and is even less inspiring to look at than the X5, though it too handles well.
The Lexus GX 470 offers a bit smaller overall size but most of the features of this class.
The Land Rover Range Rover is a stylish option, though that premium styling comes with a premium price.
