BMW X5: Featured Performance

BMW X5 Engine Specs

Based on its current model, there are a few specific performance features that can take the engine power to new levels. Each model comes with Dynamic Damper Control and your choice of either the Adaptive M Suspension or double wishbone front suspension, which improves performance and vehicle stability.

The X5 is designed to impress at first glance. The model’s active kidney grille and side air vents not only add a sleek, presidential feel to each model, but also improve aerodynamics. Improving aerodynamics means cutting down on wind resistance so you can maximize mileage with every trip.

Specifically, the X5 M50i trim takes its performance features to a whole new level. These include its very own standard Adaptive M Suspension, M Sport Brakes, and M Differential. This makes the M50i a great model for performance-obsessed drivers.

BMW X5: Interior

Taking a look at the current 2022 model, each X5 brightens up its interior with a standard panoramic moonroof. With just the touch of a button, drivers and passengers can let in some fresh air while taking in a new view.

Depending on which model you select, you’re able to choose which color best complements your space. Just some interior color combinations include:

  • Ivory White
  • Cognac
  • Coffee
  • Canberra Beige
  • Black

The X5 offers plenty of on-board systems, too. For example, the X5 xDrive45e’s hybrid comes standard with its own exclusive digital instrument cluster. This cluster acts as your information center. It beautifully displays your expected e-range, electric motor output, charge status, and more.

The X5 M model also comes standard with BMW’s signature Live Cockpit Professional. With this system, drivers can easily engage with navigation, entertainment systems, or any other available interfaces and technology.

This model even comes equipped with a Harman Kardon® Surround Sound Audio System with 464-watt amplifier and 16 speakers. Play your favorite tunes with clear, studio-like sound and you’re sure to feel the extra bass behind your beats.

The BMW X5 M also comes with driver-focused luxuries like its 4-way power lumbar support for its front seats, Comfort Access keyless entry, and multi-color, adjustable ambient lighting.

BMW X5: Trim Options

There are five trim levels to choose from:

  • sDrive40i/xDrive40i
  • xDrive45e
  • M50i
  • X5 M

The sDrive40i/xDrive40i are considered the core models for this lineup. The xDrive40i sticks out as featuring the xDrive all-wheel drive powertrain. However, other than this difference, these models are virtually the same. Both come with Dynamic Cruise Control, a universal garage-door opener, and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility.

Now let’s jump up to the highest trim: the BMW X5 M. Here are just a few of the many luxurious standard features on this model:

  • 3-stage heated front seats
  • Fully finished trunk with remote trunk release
  • Power tailgate
  • Ground-illuminating lights in exterior door handles

The model includes standard M Sport seats which provide style and support. The seats have illuminated M badges that emphasize their soft Merino Leather upholstery. The trim also comes with standard 6-piston front M compound brakes for even and immediate stopping power when you need it most.
