BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The only.....and I mean only.... FEP level camo photo in existence that shows a true closeup Side By Side comparison of the current E70 X5 vs the F15 X5. As the photo clearly show's....the F15 X5 is going to be much larger than the current E70 X5. Some would say considerably larger. For the most up to date info on the all the X line vehicle's follow me palbay on twitter and Instagram. Thanks. Palbay

If its going to be much larger, I think that means we won't see a x7 in the future(?)

But I think it just look bigger in the picture since f15 is closer than e70 to the camera

Looks as though the larger proportions of the F15 X5 will begin to encroach on the Range Rover's territory in the Luxury all terrain segment. It will be interesting to see the competitors to the new X5 and how it will be positioned price wise.

Excellent comparison photo!

I strongly hope that if there is going to be an F15 X5 M, that there will be a new drivetrain used. After all, the current M5 and M6s all have almost the exact same engine as the E70 X5 M... And we all know that weight reduction is being considered in the M division...

Sounds promising, I'm hoping for a real and usable 3 row seat so I can get out of the MDX and into the X5.

Don't get me wrong the MDX is nice and the upcoming 2014 model looks very promising as well but I would like an X5 this go around.

Agreed, I think there is a bit of an illusion here..... I hope.

Not a fan of the bigger looking X5. Looks like an X3 on steriods in an ugly kind of way.

If it is as be as it looks. Then that is quite large! Creating a new larger x3 in the works?

Looks interesting to me. I want a 3rd row (a usable one) for the family car and the only true alternatives on the market today are the Q7 and upcoming Model X. Was hoping for a X7 to come out, but perhaps it won't be necessary if the X5 grows.

A lot larger? Don't think so.......look again.

Scott26 has already confirmed BMW is actively pursuing an X7 so a "lot larger"
X5 would be counter-productive.

That being said, BMW's do grow from one gen to the next don't they....

The F15 X5 M has already been spotted in testing.

I think this is the M-Sport, look at the wheel and black roof rails.

I'm glad I bought my 2013 X5M...I'll be keeping this old E70 for a while based on what the F15 appears to look like.
