The BMW X5 is entering a new chapter. The new X5 offers customers an assured “all-round package equipped to meet the most exacting and varied demands.” Customers keen to make the configuration of the exterior and interior a little more individualistic can vary the car’s basic equipment with the M Sport package and Pure Experience and Pure Excellence “design worlds.”
The selection of engines available from launch comprises a V8 engine producing 330 kW/450 hp for the X5 xDrive50i and the 190 kW/258 hp six-cylinder in-line diesel earmarked for the X5 xDrive30d. They are joined by an M Performance Automobile in the shape of the X5 M50d.
The new BMW X5 will be built at BMW’s Spartanburg plant in the USA. This production plant in South Carolina is the competence center for BMW X models and also produces the X6 and X3 – to be joined by the future X4 – for supply to markets throughout the world. The market launch of the new X5 in Germany is scheduled for November 2013.
