  • Both configurations come equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive.

Here is what you will find newly added to the 2020 BMW X5:

  • M50i Trim: This configuration revs up the xDrive50i powertrain with up to 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, plus a sport-tuned version of the 8-speed automatic transmission. The M50i is the top performance trim option for the 2020 X5.
  • Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) Trim: The xDrive45e comes with a 6-cylinder engine and an electric motor.

BMW X5 Reviews

  • Edmunds.com: “It’s easy to see why the 2020 BMW X5 is one of the more appealing midsize luxury SUVs on the market.” 
  • TopGear: “On the top, we find more luxury and connectivity.”
  • MotorTrend: “The switch to the CLAR platform has done wonders for the X5 in terms of handling and dynamics.”
  • The Car Connection: “Inside, the X5’s handsome cockpit gets the requisite number of screens (up to three, including a head-up display) for a luxury crossover. The finish is exquisite and fine, wrapped in metallic finishes, open pore wood, or high-gloss surfaces.”
  • Car and Driver: “Conservatively styled and beautifully crafted, the X5 line is a front-runner in the premium SUV class.”
