The BMW X5

At its heart, the BMW X5 is a midsize SAV that provides plenty of interior space and amazing overall performance for you and your passengers. As a BMW, it is as luxurious and sophisticated inside and out as you would expect, and there are several different trims available so you can get the features you want and all the power you need. The power liftgate is easy to use and gives you access to a tremendous amount of storage in the rear of the vehicle, so you can load up with everything you need to take with you and get on the road quickly.

The X5 has seating for up to five people thanks to the second row of seats and comes with rear-wheel drive standard, though there are multiple all-wheel drive trims available. With a bold exterior style and powerful performance, the X5 truly places you in command on the road, so you can conquer whatever your path throws at you. All of the power in the X5 also gives it a surprisingly high towing capacity, so if you have a camper or a boat that you need to take with you, it should be able to get the job done. Whatever you are looking for in an SAV, the X5 has you covered.


What is a Sports Activity Vehicle?

Although the term "sports utility vehicle" is more commonly used, the BMW X5 is a sports activity vehicle, because it is designed to handle so much more than a standard SUV. For one thing, it emphasizes performance and power that you do not find in a lot of other SUVs out there, even those designed on a truck platform. This makes it able to handle a wide range of tasks and activities, whether you need to get to work every day or want to hit the road for a long trip.

As an SAV, the X5 is larger and more powerful than some other BMW models that are labeled as a "sports activity coupe" or SAC. A SAC model from BMW is typically on the smaller side, offering an experience a bit closer to what you would get from a two-door coupe and generally recognizable by their sloping roofs. Deciding on whether a SAC or SAV model is right for you can be tricky, and really depends on what you need and other factors that you are looking for. That is why we are here to work with you and help you determine which model from BMW is right for you and meets all of your needs.

2020 BMW X5 Trim Levels

There are four trims available for the 2020 BMW X5. Your choice is dependent on how much power and overall performance you are looking for in your vehicle. Since the transmission and some other mechanical systems change based on the trim you choose, this is a very important decision to make before buying an X5. Finding the right model will have a significant impact on your driving experience for years to come, which is why we are dedicated to working closely with our customers to help you find the perfect one.

The four 2020 BMW X5 trims are:

  • X5 sDrive40i - The standard 2020 BMW X5 features a 3.0L TwinPower Turbo I-6 engine that provides up to 335 hp and up to 330 lb-ft of torque, with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It has 19-inch all-season run-flat tires and up to 72.3 cu.ft. of interior cargo capacity. The sDrive40i comes with 16-way power front seats, a 10-speaker HiFi sound system, and 12-inch displays for Infotainment and driver information.
  • X5 xDrive40i - If you choose the xDrive40i, you get the same engine as the standard model, but with intelligent all-wheel drive instead of the standard rear-wheel drive. Otherwise, the features are very similar, including the same tires, interior cargo space, and details throughout. Your choice here is really between either RWD or intelligent AWD. If you tend to drive in rough terrain or poor weather, then the all-wheel drive can be a great choice that keeps you safely on the road.
  • X5 xDrive50i - The xDrive50i, on the other hand, is a far more powerful vehicle that comes with a 4.4L BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that provides you with up to 456 hp and up to 479 lb-ft of torque. It also has an 8-speed automatic transmission but features Vernasca leather upholstery and fantastic details throughout the interior. The xDrive50i features a 16-speaker Harman Kardon Surround sound system and automatic four-zone climate control.
  • X5 M50i - Finally, the M50i is the ultimate expression of the BMW X5, with the 4.4L V8 engine tuned to deliver up to 523 hp and up to 553 lb-ft of torque. This model comes with 20-inch all-season run-flat tires and is an absolute thrill to drive. The M50i features 20-way power multi-contour front seats, three-stage heated front seats, and a wireless charging pad. It also has amazing safety features to protect you and your loved ones, including adaptive LED headlights, front and rear parking distance control, and a frontal collision warning with city collision mitigation.
