My mistake, I meant the Aviator. Got to tell you, the reviews I have read so far are very positive. Great looking SUV in & out. I may test drive one to see for myself.
still uses the 10 speed shitbox. I drove the navigator and expedition which use the same tranny and are awful. I mean the only nice thing is you can hear the turbos spooling up but power is elusive until the higher rev range if you get it to select the proper gear. BMWs I6 is incredibly smooth and I'm not a die-hard fan of the brand. They do things correctly and I applaud them for it. Others they fail at and I crucify them accordingly which you can verify by my post history.
