PostHeaderIcon BMW X5 with M Performance Parts

The fourth-generation BMW X5 is set to arrive very soon for the 2019 model year, but Bimmer is already ramping up the hype with a slew of new M Performance parts, including fresh exterior bits and new interior equipment. Off-roading- or racer-styles are both on offer.

PostHeaderIcon Is the 2019 BMW X7 Too Similar to the BMW X5?

The BMW X7 has arrived, and it’s poised to take the reigns from the X5 as Bavaria’s new flagship SUV. The full-sized behemoth will have its hands full competing against the likes of the Mercedes GLS-Class and the Land Rover Range Rover. For the time being, at least, the X7 will also draw comparisons to the model it’s replacing atop the BMW SUV food chain. Fair or not, the X7 will be compared to the X5, in part to judge the merits of the X7 as Bimmer’s new flagship SUV. The latter now holds the keys to BMW’s SUV kingdom as all eyes will be on it to see if it can elevate the German automaker’s status in the market.

BMW X5 Spyshots - Fourth Testing Session

Please welcome the heavyweight SUV showdown. This is the Mercedes-Benz GLE versus the BMW X5. No, you will not find out which one is better, nor will I suggest you get one over the other. You will, however, find out how two of the most astounding SUVs of today stack one against another. How do they differ? Do they bring anything new? How cool are they?

I am well aware that many hate SUVs because they find them too flamboyant and too aggressive for the world we live in, but the matter of the fact is that SUVs have become a staple of car design, leaders of technology development, and models that make a lot of money. Every SUV you buy fuels a bit of money into the development of the really cool stuff. So, as far as I’m concerned, you should buy them as much as possible.

With the recent introduction of the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE, SUV fandom becomes even richer.

PostHeaderIcon BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance

The BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance is the latest iteration of the company’s midsize luxury SUV. Introduced for the 2019 model year, it replaces the xDrive40e based on the previous-generation (F15) crossover.

On top of the new exterior design and interior features that come with each new generation, the xDrive45e iPerformance also boasts major changes under the hood. Not only did BMW replaced the old four-cylinder with an inline-six mill, but the hybrid drivetrain is also more powerful and delivers superior performance. The X5 also emits less CO2 than before and runs more miles on electric power alone. But more about that, as well as on how it compares with its rivals, in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon The BMW X5 M Avalanche by Auto-Dynamics

We are still a year or two away from the new BMW X5 M launch. Yet, the old one is still in excellent shape with its striking V-8 and intimidating looks. That’s why we are seeing it again coming out of a tuner’s garage. In this case, from the garage of Auto-Dynamics from Poland.

These guys are no strangers to tuning all sorts of German machinery, including Porsches, Audis and BMWs. Their latest project is the F85 BMW X5 M, and it was massaged to deliver more power than the Lamborghini Urus and drive to 62 mph almost as quickly as the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. Apart from giving credibility to Russian mobsters, to sons of Arab oil barons, and really successful cocaine kings, cars like this show what the SUV world is doing nowadays. It seems that the world of SUVs has reached the same stage as what tuned sports cars had reached twenty years ago – a place between rationality and madness.

PostHeaderIcon Mid-year review: The 5 Best Truck and SUV Debuts So Far This Year

SUVs and trucks practically replaced sedans and wagons. Heck, they are so popular now that some manufacturers make three-door versions of SUVs, something that has never worked well. Nevertheless, this year has seen a fair share of SUV and truck releases, but as with everything else, some are more important than others.
I present to you five best and most important truck and SUV debuts so far this year.

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 BMW X5’s Online Configurator is Going to Take Some Getting Used To

The BMW X5 has arrived and as expected with models of its status, so too has its online configurator. We’ve gotten adept at these online configurators to the point that it’s become common for us to start working on our own versions of the just-released model just so we have an excuse to play around with it. This time, I’m taking the controls of the BMW X5 online configurator to see what I can do to create the X5 of my dreams. You don’t have to like what I end up creating, but that’s the beauty of this exercise. If you don’t like what I did, you can go make your own.

PostHeaderIcon BMW X5 – A Formidable Foe Four Times in a Row

It is a war out there. Not the War of the Worlds, but a war among SUVs – big ones, fast ones, mean ones and appealing ones. The escalating conflict in the world of SUVs did bring exceptional weaponry to the market playground. No one can argue with the mercenary nature that the likes of the Audi Q7, the Porsche Cayenne, the Mercedes-Benz GLE or the BMW X5 wreak upon us.

They are all good. Perhaps not in a nice or a polite way, but certainly in a firm, tenacious, and tough way. They are badass – dominating streets, embellishing house driveways, and providing a majority of that important surplus at the bottom of manufacturers’ balance sheets.

And the BMW X5 may well be the best of them all!

Since its inception back in 2000, the Bavarian giant has delivered 2.2 million units worldwide. Now, in its fourth generation, the 2019 BMW X5 faces its toughest test – the onslaught of exceptionality a whole guard of premium manufacturers unleashed to the streets.

This is how the 2019 BMW X5 prepared to fair the fight.

BMW X5 Spyshots - Fourth Testing Session

The 2019 BMW X5 has been completely redesigned for 2019 with a new, revitalized exterior look, all-new interior, tons of new technology, and even more power than before. At the time of launch, it will be offered in four different trim levels that include xDrive40i (replaces the 35i,) the xDrive50i, xDrive30d, and the M50d.

All models come standard with next-gen tech like BMW’s Live Cockpit Professional, a 12.3-inch infotainment display, larger head up display, cooled and heated cup holders, and ambient interior lighting. And, to really top things off, it’s a seven-seater with extra legroom. No good deed goes unpunished, though, as it looks like cargo room does suffer a bit.

The “SkyLounge” panorama glass roof is said to have as many as 15,000 illuminated colors. Wheel offerings range anywhere between 18 and 22-inches and an off-road package will add a special locking differential in the rear. Gasoline engines range between 340 and 462 horsepower while diesel engines range between 265 and 400 horsepower. The new, 2019 BMW X5 should go on sale in late 2018.

Updated 07/04/2018: BMW announced prices for the 2019 X5. Check the “Prices” section for the full details.

PostHeaderIcon Love It or Leave It – The 2019 BMW X5

BMW X5 Spyshots - Fourth Testing Session

In production since 2013, the third-generation BMW X5 entered its final year on the market in 2018. With production scheduled to end this year, the Germans launched the fourth-generation SUV. Redesigned on the group’s new CLAR platform, the G05 model boasts a new but familiar exterior and a more modern interior. As it is the case with redesigns, the X5 also gained a revised engine lineup and a wide array of new gear, including driver aids, a new suspension setup, and an off-road package.

Unfortunately, the new SUV also comes with a few downsides. We’ve already discussed the good and the bad at the office, and you can read our opinions below. Don’t forget to tell us what you think about the new X5 in the comments section.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Screwed Up Big Time with the New X5

Hey, look, the brand-new BMW X5 is here! I know, it’s yesterday news, everyone has seen it. Well, I’m not exactly anxious to get up early in the morning so yeah, I’m usually late on the news. But here’s something no one appears to have noticed yet: the SUV’s trunk is now smaller. And not by a little bit, it’s significantly smaller, despite the X5 being slightly bigger.

BMW X5 Spyshots - Fourth Testing Session

The 2019 BMW X5 can be optioned with an electric boot cover, a technology that takes the top spot on our list of useless technology and makes BMW look like it’s trying too hard.

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 BMW X5 Grew In Almost Every Way, But Doesn’t Deliver Where it Maters Most

BMW’s quest to make the new X5 SUV look sexier may have come at the expense of cargo space taking a significant hit. Spec data from the X5’s launch revealed that the minimum cargo space dropped from 35.8 cubic feet to 22.8 cubic feet but even more alarming, the maximum cargo space also dropped from 76.7 cubic feet to a paltry 65.7 cubic feet. Even with the rear seats in their full and upright positions, cargo space also dropped from 35.8 cubic feet to 31.7 cubic feet. Do the math, and that’s four cubic feet less than the previous model, representing 11 percent less space compared to the model it’s replacing.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Has Already Rendered the BMW X5 M and It Looks Like a Winner

With the new BMW X5 now in our lives, rendering artists have begun coming out of the woodwork to present their interpretations of what a BMW X5 M is going to look like. One of these artists, Aksyonov Nikita, has released his rendering of the M-powered X5, and it has a lot of potential.

PostHeaderIcon Is the BMW X5 Really Suitable for Towing or Going Off-Road?

The 2019 BMW X5 is available with an off-road package, but does that mean it’s suitable for real off-roading? Furthermore, as a midsized SUV, is it capable of towing anything worth a damn or is that better left for your country-dwelling buddy with his Ford F-150 or Chevy Silverado? We intend to answer these questions and maybe go into a few more details so that you’re prepared before you take the plunge into reserving your very own 2019 BMW X5. Let’s get to it.

Read on for a breakdown of what’s to come in terms of both the exterior styling and interior space.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW X5 Unveiled

The fourth-generation BMW X5 has arrived, and it looks to bring new exterior styling, a refreshed interior, updated engines, and the latest technology features. The reveal comes mere hours after a slew of official pictures mysteriously “leaked” onto the Internet, and now, we’ve got the official specs to fill in the gaps.

Buyers can get theirs in two different trim levels, including the X5 xDr40i and the X5 xDr50i. Dimensionally, the new X5 is larger than before, with a longer wheelbase that adds an extra 1.6 inches over the outgoing model. It’s also longer overall by 1.1 inches, plus 2.6 inches wider and an inch taller, all of which should enhance the crossover’s road presence and interior room.

The new X5 looks different too, thanks to a restyled front end and those beefier proportions. Standard exterior features include Adaptive LED headlights and 19-inch alloy wheels, while laser headlights and 20-inch M-branded alloys are both optional.

Inside, the new layout seems to angle all the instrumentation towards the driver’s position, while electrically adjustable sports seats are standard. Additional M gear, such as a new sports steering wheel, new pedals, and trim bits are also offered.

As for the tech front, standard spec throws in basics like Blind Spot Detection, Frontal Collision Warning, and Lane Departure Warning. There’s also a 12.3-inch instrument cluster as part of the latest iDrive system.

Two turbocharged gas engines are offered for motivation, including a six-cylinder and a V-8, with 335 horses made by the former and 456 horses made by the latter. The 0-to-60 mph sprint is completed in 5.3 seconds with the ‘six and 4.6 seconds with the ‘eight. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, while AWD puts the power to the ground.

Electronically controlled dampers keep the new X5 shiny side up, while Integral Active Steering is an available option. Expect a vast array of settings and systems to customize yours as you see fit. There’s even an Off-Road Package, if that’s your kind of thing.

No official pricing was announced, but expect the 2019 BMW X5 to slot in at around $60,000.

Although we’ve seen it testing in camouflaged body panels prior, we’re now getting our first unrestricted glimpse at the new BMW X5’s styling, courtesy of a recent rash of leaked images. It would appear as though this is the real deal.
