2006 BMW X5 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
2007 4dr SUV 260-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Better than our 6 cyl Grand Cherokee by far see full BMW X5 review
2006 BMW X5 Real Gas Mileage: Cons
2006 4dr SUV 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The 3.0L i6 is rather underpowered, and it's hard for me to squeeze even 22 mpg out of my X5. Most of the time, I get close to 20. Most V8 X5s from this generation get 16-18 mpg. see full BMW X5 review
