Short Term Loaners and Leases
2013 BMW X5 Premium
The 3.0L inline 6-cylinder turbocharged engine in the xDrive35i makes 300 horsepower. xDrive50i versions are fitted with an all-aluminum twin-turbo 4.4L V8 with variable valve timing and direct injection. It features what BMW calls a "reverse flow" setup, with its twin turbochargers situated within the valley between the cylinders. It makes 400 horsepower and 450 ft-lb of torque. Powering the xDrive35d is a 265-hp 3.0L inline-6 diesel engine. The Variable TwinPower Turbo engine also produces 425 ft-lb of torque and delivers an EPA estimated 26 mpg on the highway. At the very top of the range is the intense X5 M, featuring 555 horsepower from a tuned version of the xDrive50i's 4.4L V8.
2012 Range Rover HSE
The Range Rover is more than just safety, however--the Range Rover comes with a 14- speaker sound system, a navigation system, leather-wrapped multifunction, heated steering wheel and leather heated front and rear seats. The HSE Lux steps it up with power-folding, auto-dimming electric mirrors and perforated leather seats with heating and cooling functions, among other upgrades. For audiophiles, Land Rover offers an optional and very impressive 1200 watt, 19 speaker Harmon/Kardon audio system. The Supercharged Range Rover is similarly equipped to the HSE luxury but comes with bigger brakes, rain sensing and automatic headlights, 20-inch wheels and active suspension.
2012 Mercedes GL350
The GL350 and GL450 both have an 8-speaker CD/MP3 stereo and halogen headlights. The GL550 upgrades these to standard harman/kardon 11-speaker CD/MP3 stereo with SIRIUS satellite radio, burl walnut trim and adaptive headlights.
Premium packages, available on the GL350 and GL450 bring popular options to the lower trims. The Premium packages, for example, add an auto-dimming mirror, COMAND navigation system, a stereo with hard disk drive, power-folding mirrors, a power-liftgate and SIRIUS satellite radio. A rear-seat DVD entertainment system is an option for all three GL-Class models.
