BMW X5 Off-Road Package

The BMW X5 tow hitch is a smart choice for big jobs, but the BMW X5 Off-Road Package offers even more performance features and accessories into your X5:

  • Two-Axle Air Suspension: When traveling at low speeds, your X5 can lower itself by 1.6 inches for better maneuverability.
  • Electronically-Controlled Rear Differential Lock: Available for the M Sport Differential, this system creates a rear-wheel locking effect to boost your cornering precision.
