Arguably the first SUV that put the emphasis on "Sport", the BMW X5 is now in its second generation. The X5 has grown large enough to add an optional third row seat. Engine choices include a inline-6 gas, inline-6 diesel or V-8. All models are equipped with xDrive AWD. Safety & handling enhancements include Active Roll Stabilization, Dynamic Traction Control, rearview camera, and Adaptive Drive. BMW's iDrive is standard on the X5.

What Changed:

The X5 wears freshened styling with updates to the front fascia and lower body trim. The X5 xDrive50i is now powered by a 400-bhp 4.4l V8 engine, wheras the x5 xDrive35i switches to an updated turbocharged six cylinder engine. An eight speed automatic transmission is now standard on both models.
