BMW 550i GT Road Test

Motor Trend has the goods.

Fashion-forward Yanks who can be coaxed into a test-spin of this too-tall car/too-short SUV will be impressed with its Swiss-Army-knife versatility and after a few miles at the helm of the 550i GT, they may think they've stumbled across a Filene's Basement bargain on a slightly irregular 7 Series ($82,280 if perfect, now $65,000!)...

Power flows from the 7's formidable 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 through a new eight-speed automatic to the rear wheels (AWD and the six-cylinder 535i variant follow mid-year)...

At first blush, I think the Toyota Venza look isn't becoming for a $65K vehicle. But photos can be deceiving, so let's give it the benefit of the doubt. For now.
