Well, I guess I kinda cheated there. You can pick them up used, still in great shape with low miles for well under that.

have you driven the new 6.0L diesels? I most say they have some serious power and when at idle you could almost swear it wasn't a diesel. As long as ford can get the bugs out with the new injectors, which I am pretty sure they are.

I've driven a crew cab long bed 6.0L, but not a dually. I must say I was impressed as well. I'm not typically a Ford guy, but I would give anything to be pimping a F-350 crew cab dually.

Depends on what you want an SUV for. Performance, soccer momness, or off road.

I'm more performance geared, hence the Typhoon choice.

And as I said, my choices were made from vehicles I have had personal contact with.

Hummer H2 best SUV! Go drive the new Range Rover since cost is no option in those picks. It's truly remarkable on and off road for an SUV.

The ass ugly Mercedes SUV (cant think of the name....G-something i think). You wouldn't think it from the looks, but its one beast of a mountain climber.

For rock-crawling or something more slow and extreme like that, i think i'd take the new Wrangler Rubicon though.

This is a hard one to do. My choices will be a mix of what I've driven and what I haven't.

Luxury: VW Phaeton (not driven)
Sports: Corvette ZO6 (driven)
SUV: Hummer H1 (driven)
Truck: Silverado CC duallie Duramax, 6-speed (driven)
Supercar: Ferrari 575M Maranello (driven...does GREAT burnouts)
Family car (cheap): Cadillac CTS M/T (driven)
Family car (not cheap): Cadillac CTS-V (not driven)

What I like is that the CTS-V is quicker and faster than the current BMW M5. And, Kurant, the RS6 does not blow the doors off of the M5. And, the M5 is a better looking and more refined (in my opinion) drive.

Specs between the two. The 2002 M5 listed first, the 2003 RS6 second.

0-60mph: 4.6/4.3
1/4 mile: 13.1 @ 109.4/12.6 @ 108.6
60mph-0 braking: 116'/113'
Slalom Speed: 67.0 mph/67.8 mph
Skidpad grip: 0.88-ish (can't locate the exact figure)/0.89

You would expect the lower 0-60mph times for the Audi due to 56 more horsepower and all wheel drive, but the BMW comes back with a higher 1320' trap speed. Braking is equal, and the slalom speeds have a negligible difference.

And this is the 394hp M5. Just wait for the new M5...550hp from the V10. 0-60 is looking to drop in to the 3 second category. And, it's less spendy than the RS6.
