After many small leaks and speculation, the all new BMW X5 is finally official, and the third generation will have a release date and hit our roads in November 2013.
Finally its official, the new BMW X5 is finally all official and out in the wild now! The X5 helped set the tone and market for the modern day SUV in the UK, and has grown from strength to strength in recent years. The new, 3rd gen BMW X5 gives off a slightly softer feel, more curvaceous in design and closer to a raised estate than a 4 x 4.
Three engine options will be available on the new X5 at launch later this year:
- xDrive50i with a V8 pushing out 450 hp, 650 Nm torque and to 60 in 5 seconds flat
- xDrive30d diesel featuring 258 hp, 560 Nm torque and to 60 in 6.9 seconds
- and the BMW X5 M50d M Performance. With a tri-turbo diesel pushing out 381 hp, 740 Nm torque and to 60 in 5.3 seconds
On the inside, technology is at a premium, the 10.25-inch display sitting centre stage, surrounded by a slick, rather sumptuous interior. But don’t take our word for it, take a look at the pictures and let us know what you think.
