Consider that you were buying a daily driver, as well as something that would have to slog through mud, standing water, sand, etc. on a regular basis. So off-road ability is a huge factor. The G has three locking diffs.

And because it's a daily driver for someone with an appetite for speed, power is a huge factor. The Cayenne's power is unmatched.

Both are between $90-100k, so price isn't really a factor.

For the person who will drive it everyday, take it seriously off-road at least once a week, and likes something with lots of power for interstate cruising, which would you recommend?<br>

SUV's off-road-ability, but I have some other opinions I'd like to point out.

My dad has a G500 as a daily driver (he's also thinking about upgrading to a G55) and loves it. It turns more heads than a flashy red sports car, and rivals exotics for gawk factor. Build quality feels very rugged and solid, especially with the heavy doors. Interior quality is pretty good, nothing spectacular. I like the ride as well as the steering feel.

My friend's dad has a Cayenne Turbo as a daily driver. It was new, so my friend didn't punch it. 13.5 1/4 mile in an SUV is pretty crazy. Build quality and interior design is pretty disappointing. The handles by the center console look cheesy and seem to be useless from what I can tell. Also, the VW Toureg looks a lot better than the Cayenne IMO.

Performance wise, the Cayenne definitely will tear up the G55, but the G55 looks so much more rugged like a military vehicle or H1 Himmer. I'd take the G55 as a daily driver.

You just gotta love that retro rugged look. The Cayenne looks like a poseur car to me, and the back seat room is terribly small - and this comes from a 911 owner!

It is a no-brainer; the obvious choice is the E55 AMG Wagon.

As a Cayenne TT owner I beg to differ on your assertion that the rear seat is small - it simply isn't true.

I could pretty much run over anything in one of those. They make Hummers look weak.

Wrong, I too have a Cayenne...........the backseat is embarrassingly small. My son's WRX wagon has more leg room.
