The 90s was a popular time for the SUV and at the end of the decade BMW broke their mold of sporty sedans and sleek roadsters to bring the first X Series model, the BMW X5, to the market. Coined a Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV), this iconic model paved the way for a now extensive lineup of vehicles for the discerning customers who still want luxury and performance, but on a larger platform.
The BMW X5 is available in several trims (sDrive35i, XDrive35i, xDrive35d, and xDrive50i), and at our dealership we typically offer both the xDrive35i and the xDrive50i, though we can also get any other trim.
With the popular xDrive35i you'll get a desirable 3.0L TwinPower Turbo engine that delivers an exciting 300hp. Not only is the engine powerful but it has pretty efficient as well, with estimated highway fuel ratings only being a MPG less than certain trims on the smaller BMW X3.
As you probably expect with a BMW you'll find a great selection of standard features that aim to wow. For comfort and convenience you'll love the parking assistant and touchpad controller. For entertainment and electronics you'll appreciate the premium surround sound system and the BMW Mobile Office app that lets you work on the go. Safety is also key and you'll have a surround view for easy parking and BMW's Assist eCall service.
Looking to up the already impressive ante? Visit us to test drive the xDrive50i, a truly high-end beast. The 4.4L V8 engine delivers a heart-pounding 445hp, making it perfect for the driver who wants more edge and power when they press down.
