    Big BMW Gets Good Mileage
    BMW X5

    The BMW X5 is the newest member inf the BMW line.  Besides luxury, styling, generous size inside and out, this big SUV squeezes every mile out of a gallon.

    It even rivals the smaller 2009 Toyota RAV4 in fuel economy ratings. Both vehicles with all-wheel drive are rated by EPA at 19 mpg in city driving and 26 mpg on the highway. 

    Only SUVs with four cylinder engines and gas-electric hybrids have higher government mileage ratings for 2009.   The X5's secret is a 3-liter, double-overhead cam, turbocharged V-6 diesel.
