The BMW X5 is an athletically styled luxury SUV with seating for up to seven. Powered by a wide range of powerful gas and diesel engines sending at least 265 and up to 555 hp to either the rear or all wheels, the X5 handles and rides at the top of its class on-road, but is not intended for serious off-road use. Its well-built cabin is safe and available with an abundancy of luxury options. It hosts five in perfect comfort, but is a rather tight for seven, if equipped with the optional third row seat.
Changes for 2011
The BMW X5 benefits from a minor exterior update and new engines for 2011. Apart from the X5 M's V8, both gas engines are upgraded to the latest turbo technology, resulting in power increases to 300 hp for the Inline-6 and 400 hp for the twin-turbo V8. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic that is also new.
The 2011 BMW X5 SUV is available in 6 trim levels.
The BMW X5 xDrive35i comes standard with dual-zone automatic air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, 8-way power driver bucket seat with memory, 8-way power passenger bucket seat, split-folding bench rear seat, tilting and telescoping steering-wheel, AM/FM/HD radio with CD-player, weatherband radio, ABS, stability control, front airbags, front side airbags, side-curtain airbags, tire-pressure monitor, emergency communication system, Xenon headlights and adaptive headlights.
