As was said (and IMHO), it's more trying to be a sports car than a truck. I'd be inclined to go with more truck (1/2 ton) than the X5. I think you'd be fine on the pulling side, but I guess I wouldn't want that much boat pushing me around on the downhills.....but again, this is my "seat of the pants" opinion.

Did ou ask on any of the BMW websites?
