2016 BMW X5 Review
The X5 is considered a mid-size 'sports activity vehicle.' The X5 is one of the most successful recent additions to the luxury SUV market, taking on top contenders in its class like the Range Rover Sport, Porsche Cayenne and the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class. Engine options include six- and eight-cylinder gas engines, an excellent turbodiesel. Soon those choices will be joined by a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. Many X5 models come with standard all-wheel drive, though BMW has recognized the need for less-expensive rear-wheel drive models in recent years.

On the market for a decade and a half now, the BMW X5 was initially created to meet America’s growing desire for luxury SUVs. At the time, BMW also owned Land Rover, and because of this the first-generation X5 shares much of its design with that legendary brand’s off-roaders, as well as the BMW 5-Series sedan. The original X5 also sported a range of engines, including a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder and a number of 4.4-liter to 4.8-liter V-8 engines paired with five- or six-speed automatic transmissions. For the second generation, BMW designed a new platform, with a new range of engines—including a diesel and a hybrid—and a new high-performance X5 M, while a new six-speed automatic transmission that was used in all models. Model names for the BMW X5 lineup were changed to reflect more iterations of the ute. With the second generation, the new names adopted a different format: the X5 xDrive30i, for example, denoted the standard all-wheel drive (xDrive) and a 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine. In addition to that model, BMW offered a 3.0-liter turbodiesel as the X5 xDrive35d, a 4.8-liter V-8 engine in the X5 xDrive48i, and a 555-horsepower, twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine in the new X5 M. In 2011, the standard models got engine upgrades and name changes: the six-cylinder got a turbo and the xDrive35i name, while the V-8 model got a pair of turbos and the xDrive50i badge. All X5s of this generation featured the same basic five-seat interior layout, with leather upholstery, BMW’s iDrive infotainment system, advanced stability and traction electronics, plus a wide range of optional upgrades. The X5 M offered extreme performance with a big price tag to match--base prices hit $85,500--delivering near-sports car performance with near-supercar power. The X5 xDrive35d was one of the few diesel luxury SUVs on the market, and scored with 265 horsepower and a 26-mpg EPA highway rating. The least-expensive X5 is powered by BMW's tried and true 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six, making 300 hp in both the rear-drive sDrive35i and all-wheel-drive xDrive35i. A diesel is again available in the xDrive35d. And there's still a V-8 option in the xDrive50i, which is powered by a 4.4-liter engine making 445 hp. All models now have electric power steering, which is very light and offers only hints of the feedback the older models supplied. A smooth eight-speed automatic improves efficiency but also includes a more aggressive sport mode for those who want it. There's also an available adaptive suspension setup, as well as air springs for the rear that are best for towing applications. The X5 can seat up to seven. The front seats aren't BMW's best efforts, but the second-row seat can now be split 40/20/40 for more flexibility, and each section is adjustable individually for rake. The optional third-row seats have an 'easy entry' function. The cargo hold can be opened from the keyfob or the driver's seat—the lower piece drops like a truck tailgate, while the upper glass powers open like a minivan hatch. The new X5 is long on advanced safety technology, including a lane-departure warning system and a pedestrian collision-avoidance system with automatic braking. A new Traffic Jam Assistant maintains following distance and keeps the vehicle at the center of its lane by providing steering input. While it hasn't been tested by the NHTSA, the X5 received top 'Good' ratings in the categories it has been rated in by the IIHS, and it also has a 'Superior' score for front crash prevention.

BMW has announced that the X5 M will be powered by an upgraded version of the twin-turbo 4.4-liter massaged by M, it should be even quicker than its predecessor. The X5 M once again brings a torque-vectoring rear differential (which is otherwise unavailable elsewhere in the X5 lineup), making it a real track monster, and likely plenty of fun in snowy weather. It receives a more aggressive exterior, of course, and will be joined again by an X6 M for those who just don't like all of that utility in the back of the X5. Looking to the future, BMW has shown a plug-in hybrid version of the X5, called the xDrive40e. It pairs a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor and battery fort estimated fuel economy of 55 MPGe. The 40e will arrive in the fall of 2015 as a 2016 model.
