About BMW X5

About the 2019 BMW X5

Now entering its fourth generation, the all-new 2019 BMW X5 rides on a 1.6 inch longer wheelbase and features an extra 2.6 inches of width for a more muscular appearance along with expanded cargo and passenger-carrying abilities. Since its introduction nearly 20 years ago, the X5 has been assembled exclusively in Spartanburg, South Carolina with over 2.2 million models sold worldwide. Currently sitting atop the BMW Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) lineup until the larger X7 debuts later this year, the X5 remains the perfect match for luxury SUV shoppers living active lifestyles or those with growing families. Both drivers and passengers will immediately gain a sense of spaciousness and refined comfort when they step inside the sophisticated interior of the BMW X5. Groundbreaking tech features add convenience, connectivity, and create endless possibilities for chasing adventure. Innovative driver-assistive and safety features help inspire confidence behind the wheel of the all-new BMW X5.


What the Critics Say

"The exterior dimensions grow slightly larger, but the overall appearance is little changed--BMW no doubt was loath to stray too far from what has been a winning formula. The body is 1.1 inches longer and 1.0 inch taller, while width has grown by 2.6 inches, and the vehicle rides on a 1.6-inch-longer wheelbase. The grille is now deeper and canted slightly forward, with active shutters to aid aerodynamics." -- Car and Driver

"BMW has made significant changes to the X5's interior; the most significant are to the infotainment screen and the arrangement of many controls. The center console has taken on a look similar to other recently redesigned BMWs, with angular air vents and minimalist controls for the climate system." -- Consumer Reports

2019 BMW X5 Exterior Styling

Striking Style

While you'll easily trace its lineage to previous generations, the exterior styling of the all-new 2019 BMW X5 has been revised for an even more striking look. Clean surfacing and precise lines help emphasize poise and authority, helping the X5 stand out from ordinary luxury SUVs. Wider, longer, and taller than the outgoing model -- the all-new X5 delivers a sporty yet rugged character. Key design elements include standard Adaptive LED headlights, large BMW kidney grille with single-piece surrounds, and optional 21-inch and 22-inch alloy wheel designs. Opt for the X5 M Sport and you'll also receive wheel arch trim, bumper trim, rear underbody protection, and side skirts finished in body color for a performance-inspired look.

2019 BMW X5 Performance

Power & Performance

No matter which variant you select, the BMW X5 offers plenty of power and capability to conquer whatever challenge stands in your way. A standard 3.0-liter straight-six engine cranks out 335 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque for a perfected balance of response and efficiency. Conquer whatever Mother Nature throws at you with standard xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive for stability and surefootedness across the entire spectrum of weather conditions. The end result of extensive development, the X5 xDrive50i comes standard with a 456-Horsepower 4.4L 8-cylinder engine which can rocket from 0-60 in just 4.6 seconds. Now with sportier shift characteristics, an eight-speed Steptronic transmission is found on every BMW X5. Boost the off-road performance, sportiness, or comfort of your drive with an array of chassis systems available in the 2019 BMW X5.

2019 BMW X5 Interior

Refined Cabin

Shifting our attention towards the interior of the all-new X5, BMW engineers placed emphasis on creating a sense of spaciousness and ambiance through the use of sweeping horizontal lines throughout the cabin. Premium material found in the interior include a new Vernasca variant for the leather upholstery along with optional BMW Individual extended Merino leather trim which is offered in five colors. Selecting an M Sport X5 model will get you exclusive interior trim strips in Aluminium Tetragon, M-specific pedals, M Sport steering wheel, and an anthracite headliner. For a true audiophile-caliber experience, the optional Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System features 20 speakers and 1,500-watt output. Remote engine start along with heated and cooled cup holders in the center console are just two further examples of luxurious amenities found inside the all-new BMW X5.
