X5 M[edit]

The BMW M performance derivative of the F15 X5 is designated F85 and was released in 2015. Its S63B44T2 4.4 liter V8 engine has 575 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful engine ever developed for an all-wheel drive BMW. The engine has M TwinPower Turbo and Valvetronic technologies, to deliver a 0-60 mph time of 4 seconds.[13]

An M-tuned xDrive all-wheel drive system provides traction. It distributes drive between the front and rear axles, while Dynamic Performance Control distributes torque between the 21-inch M Double-spoke light-alloy wheels—all for dynamic driving and all-road capability.[13]

X5 xDrive40e[edit]

The BMW X5 xDrive40e is a plug-in hybrid with an all-electric range of 23 km (14 mi).

The BMW X5 xDrive40e is the first plug-in hybrid released under the core BMW brand. The use of BMW's eDrive technology on the established X5 platform is a direct technology transfer from the BMW i cars, in particular, from the BMW i8 technology.[14]

The production of the plug-in hybrid variant was scheduled to begin in April 2015.[7][15][16] Retail deliveries in the U.S. began in October 2015.[17] Pricing starts at US$62,100 plus US$995 destination charge before any applicable government incentives.[18]

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rated the X5 xDrive40e combined city/highway fuel economy at 56 mpg‑US (4.2 L/100 km; 67 mpg‑imp) equivalent (MPG-e) in all-electric mode (energy comsuption of 59 kW-hrs/100 mi). The fuel economy in gasoline-only mode was rated at 24 mpg‑US (9.8 L/100 km; 29 mpg‑imp). EPA's all-electric range is 14 mi (23 km) with the car using some gasoline, and as a result, EPA's official range veries between 0 and 14 mi.[19]

BMW X5 emergency vehicles (2014-)[edit]

Available for sDrive25d and xDrive30d, X5 paramedic vehicle includes automatic tailgate.

The vehicle was unveiled in 14th RETTmobil trade fair in Fulda (xDrive30d).[20]



BMW X5 xDrive30d (Australia)

The new generation BMW X5 is 5 mm (0.2 in) wider, 26 mm (1.0 in) longer and 14 mm (0.6 in) lower than E70, but wheelbase remains at 2,933 mm (115.5 in). At the front F15 takes design from F30 3 Series while at the back it's similar to other current X series models. The interior now features 10.25 inch display. The exterior, designed by BMW designer Mark Johnson, was approved in November 2010 and production finalized in 2011.[21]


BMW claims the new X5 is made of ultra-high-tensile steel in the body structure, thermoplastics in the side panels, aluminium in the bonnet and magnesium in the instrument panel support to make the new BMW X5 lighter. Depending on the model, the new X5 is as much as 90 kg (198 lb) lighter than a comparably equipped corresponding model from the previous X5 generation.[22]


In December 2013, model-specific BMW Individual options will be added to the optional extras already available for all engine variants of the new BMW X5. Options include BMW Individual fine-grain Merino leather trim in Criollo Brown and Amaro Brown (stitching and piping in a contrasting colour and decorative perforations on the seat surfaces), BMW Individual interior trim strips in Piano Finish Black and Sen Light Brown fine wood, 20-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design with mixed tyres, additional body colours (Mineral Silver, Glacier Silver and Imperial Blue diamond effect metallic paint variants; BMW Individual finishes Ruby Black metallic and Pyrite Brown metallic).
