Overview of the 2017 BMW X5
As one of the best luxury midsize SUVs in the market, the 2017 BMW X5 is a comfortable three row SUV even though the third row has less leg space than the other two rows.
The powertrain begins with a turbocharged inline-6 engine with an all-wheel drivetrain or a rear-wheel drivetrain option providing 300 horsepower and pulling 300lb.ft. of torque; the engine goes from 0-60 mph in over 6 seconds. This engine is the standard but there are engine upgrades available, including a plug-in hybrid option. Specifically:
- An inline-6 turbo diesel engine producing 255 horsepower and pulling 413 lb.-ft of torque.
- A 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission; this engine produces 308 horsepower and pulls 332 lb.-ft of torque. Its battery can be fully charged in 180 minutes with a Level 2 charger and the acceleration speed from 0-60 mph is 6.5 seconds.
- A twin turbo-charged 4.4L V8 engine producing 445 horsepower and pulling 480 lb.-ft of torque. Its acceleration speed from 0-60 mph is 4.7 seconds.
- A V8 engine producing 567 horsepower and pulling 553 lb.-ft of torque. Its acceleration speed from 0-60 mph is 4 seconds.
Its trims are: the sDrive35i Sports, the xDrive35d Sports and the xDrive35i Sports.
These trims come with different fuel consumption rates per mile. For the sDrive35i Sports, the mile per gallon rate is 18mpg in the city and 25mpg on the highway; for the other two, 23mpg in the city and 29mpg on the highway, and 18mpg in the city and 24mpg on the highway respectively. Therefore, if you are more concerned about fuel economy across the different trims in this SUV, the mid-level trim (xDrive35d Sports) should be your go-to.
The standard interior design is a merger of black leatherette upholstery and wood trim but you can go for more/better by purchasing the Ivory White Nappa leather upholstery and wood trim option or the Ivory White Nappa leather upholstery and oak or wood trim option.
Cargo space is expansive from 23 cubic feet of space to 66 cubic feet of space, over 100% its initial value; this can be achieved with the third row seats folded down.
