Introduced in 2010, the 2011 BMW X5 M is a high-performance "Sports Activity Vehicle" providing the capabilities of the X5 with power and tweaks from the German automaker's M division. Powering the X5 M is a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 555-hp, 6-speed paddle-shift automatic and xDrive all-wheel drive. With extra large air scoops in the bumper, the 5000 pound X5 M roars from 0-60 in less than 5 seconds. A new wheel torque vectoring differential works similar to Acura's SH-AWD set up to apply power to outside wheels during cornering. All of this adds up to an X5 that performs more like a sports sedan than an SUV. Fuel economy figures are 12/17 city/hwy but the exceptional performance and capabilities are outstanding.
BMW's X5 offers seating for seven with high-tech on- and off-road capabilities. And with all-new styling as well as a host of refinements for 2011, the package has become even tighter. Although it ranks among the more expensive SUVs in its class, it's a strong competitor, offering a wide range of options not found on the Acura MDX, Lexus RX 350 or Mercedes-Benz M-class.
Revised styling is the most obvious change for BMW's X5 in 2011, with new LED-equipped headlamps, a new front bumper with a new metallic lower trim panel, and revised fog lamp mounting. The rear bumper has been redesigned to match the front, and new chrome-trimmed taillights feature LED lights. Underneath that, the X5 gets several new powerplants for 2011, including a 3.0L turbocharged inline 6-cylinder that makes 300 horsepower, as well as a 4.4L V8 that produces 400 horsepower. Both engines get an all-new 8-speed automatic transmission. Other new features include active cruise control and a lane departure warning system. New colors include Deep Sea Blue, Platinum Grey and Sparkling Bronze.
Launched in 1999, the X5 is BMW's flagship mid-size SUV, or as BMW calls it, a SAV, or Sport Activity Vehicle. From the very beginning, BMW worked hard to make sure that sporty driving dynamics and a high level of responsiveness were programmed into the package, which added not only a great deal of utility, but with BMW's standard all-wheel drive system, a sure-footed nature in a variety of terrains. Add to that BMW's trademarked build quality and luxury, and you have a versatile vehicle that's well-placed at the top of its class. Three trims are available, starting with the xDrive35i, the xDrive50i, and the diesel-powered xDrive35d. A high-performance X5 M model is also available.
