    Muscle Haulers: CTS-V Wagon vs BMW X5 M - BIG MUSCLE

    Most people think that just because you've got a couple of kids, a job and the need to ravage The Home Depot on occasion that owning a fun family hauler is out of the question. However BIG MUSCLE is here to let you know that we've got you covered. Don't believe me? How does a combined total of 1,111 horsepower and top speeds of over 185 mph sound? We recently headed up to Monticello Motor Club in Monticello, NY with a few wicked family trucksters, a special guest and one bad ass Mopar that served as our BIG MUSCLE transport for the afternoon

    Why can't I watch the video? When I try to play it says it's private.

    Too bad it was wet, as it gave the BMW's 4WD system an advantage.

    I wouldn't even consider the X5 M (or X6 M). The CTS-V is a better package in so many ways even if the BMW does have certain advantages.

    He passed on the straight away because the V driver let him by. This video is sensationalism at it's finest and represents the X5M as being broadly similar in a straight line when it is not.
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!
