E70 X5 (M Sport) looks great so it's not an easy task for BMW to release a much better model....

2007 BMW X5  [0.00]
Just noticed the "Air Ride Equipped" trailer in the background... coincidence?

I am really torn on this one... my 07 X5 is so great, I LOVE the vehicle and have been pondering a 2012/13 X5 but since I'm a gadget/options lover, I think the 2014 X5 will appeal with new touch Idrive and I'm sure there will be other cool options that will push me over the edge.

Also... I LIKE the new X3 styling so a larger X3 is just fine with me!

I'd like to see more/better cargo room, as E70 really limits the space due to the shape of the panels and the cutoff from the roofline/hatch. A few extra inches of rear legroom would be nice to have, to match the already good headroom, shoulder room, and overall airiness of the cabin. I'd like to see the second row be moveable on all X5's, and having the seats to go further aft, allowing the choice between cargo and legroom. Rear passengers ought to be able to have a very comfortable seat in a vehicle as large as the X5.

Will do, but you will have to wait until late July as that's why the first of the 2014 MY's are expected to hit dealers.

Putting in my order / deposit with Porsche Houston North this week for 2014 Cayenne Diesel.

Sorry, I didn't mean to wanting you to show any proof. I just found the reply funny and often true. Would be nice if all other did like you. BMW would already have their R8 rival.

Don't get me wrong the MDX is nice and the upcoming 2014 model looks very promising as well but I would like an X5 this go around.
The 3rd row in the current MDX isn't any more usable than the one in the current E70 X5. If anything, the E70's 3rd row is MORE usable than the MDX's because you can get in it from either side of vehicle vs only from the passenger side in the MDX. Plus the E70's 3rd tilts up and out of the way. The 3rd row in the '13 MDX doesn't.

What difference does it make of the seat tilts up, leans back or break dances if no one can fit in it. My kids never use that feature anyway they climb over or go in thru the rear hatch. I have four children and only the smallest of them could fit in the 3rd row of an equipped X5 whereas all of my children,(two at a time) fit very comfortably in the 3rd row of my MDX. The X5 3rd row is notibly smaller than the 3rd in the MDX.

With that being said, it may currently work for you and yours but currently does not work for me and mine and therefore the MDX 3rd row is more usable for me at this time.

Agreed, we have a 2007 MDX and it is kid sized. The X5's is notably smaller.

It looks as big as the GL. I like the current size of the X5. It's not too big, not too small. Our third row seat is useless, but I will take it over the GL any day

I thought about getting a Cayenne but it's too expensive for me. A base Cayenne with a 0 to 60 of 7.4s is slower than the X5 3.5 which has a 0 to 60 of 6.4s. To get decent performance, in my opinion, you need to get at least the Cayenne S which sets you back at $66.8k. Options are very expensive for Porsches. Just to get navigation, you need to add PCM which will cost you $3-4k. When I tried configuring a Cayenne S, my total cost came out to $85k. When I tried configuring an X5 3.5, the total cost was $62k.
