Arrow New F15 X5 Models/Engines and Individual Portfolio Coming in Fall

New Models and Engines Coming for F15 X5 in Fall

Note: this is a global press release, so these models may not apply to your particular market.

September 19, 2013

The new BMW X5: a fresh dimension in driving pleasure and efficiency.

Hot on the heels of its market launch, the addition of another three engines and four new model variants to the new BMW X5 line-up is set to extend the Sports Activity Vehicle’s efficiency lead over its rivals. The third-generation X5 will be available for the first time from December 2013 with a BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine and rear-wheel drive. The engine powering the new BMW X5 xDrive25d and BMW X5 sDrive25d uses two turbochargers and common rail direct injection to produce maximum output of 160 kW/218 hp and links up as standard with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The hallmark driving pleasure, eye-catching design, luxurious ambience and outstanding variability of the SAV can therefore be enjoyed at the same time as impressively low fuel consumption and emissions. Average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle stands at 5.6 – 5.7 litres per 100 kilometres (50.4 – 49.6 mpg imp) for the BMW X5 sDrive25d (CO2 emissions: 149 – 151 g/km) and 5.8 – 5.9 litres per 100 kilometres (48.7 –47.9 mpg imp) for the BMW X5 xDrive25d (CO2 emissions: 154 – 156 g/km, figures depending on the tyre format selected).

Also new to the line-up are the BMW X5 xDrive35i with its 225 kW/306 hp six-cylinder in-line petrol engine and the BMW X5 xDrive40d, whose straight-six diesel unit develops 230 kW/313 hp. The new additions take their places alongside the existing BMW X5 xDrive30d, whose six-cylinder in-line diesel engine produces 190 kW/258 hp, the V8 petrol BMW X5 xDrive50i (330 kW/450 hp) and a BMW M Performance Automobile – the BMW X5 M50d (280 kW/381 hp).

New and exclusive: the BMW Individual portfolio for the BMW X5.

In December 2013, model-specific BMW Individual options will be added to the optional extras already available for all engine variants of the new BMW X5. These features serve the cause of exclusive style and meet the highest standards of material selection, design and build quality. For example, BMW Individual fine-grain Merino leather trim can be specified for the new BMW X5. complete with extended features in Criollo Brown and Amaro Brown. Stand-out aspects of this option include stitching and piping in a contrasting colour and decorative perforations on the seat surfaces. BMW Individual interior trim strips are available in two variants: Piano Finish Black and Sen Light Brown fine wood.

On the outside of the car, 20-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design with mixed tyres help to build an even more exclusive showcase for the sporting pedigree of the BMW X5. And the range of exterior paint finishes for the SAV gives customers a still broader portfolio from which to choose. In addition to the new Mineral Silver, Glacier Silver and Imperial Blue diamond effect metallic paint variants, the BMW Individual finishes Ruby Black metallic and Pyrite Brown metallic will also be available as of December 2013.

More safety, comfort and driving pleasure thanks to BMW ConnectedDrive: fully automatic Parking Assistant and Driving Assistant Plus including Traffic Jam Assistant.

The BMW ConnectedDrive range of features is set to gain even further in appeal and variety in autumn 2013 with the introduction of a fresh round of innovations which further enhance comfort, safety and therefore also driving pleasure. The optional Driving Assistant Plus system now also includes the Traffic Jam Assistant function, and the new generation of the BMW Parking Assistant also makes its debut – likewise on the options list.

Traffic Jam Assistant increases comfort in stop-start situations on motorways. This system maintains a pre-set distance to the vehicle in front and slows the car to a standstill. It also actively takes over the steering, helping the driver to stay in their lane (provided they are holding the steering wheel with at least one hand). The version of Driving Assistant Plus with this new auxiliary function will be available for all BMW 5 Series models from November 2013 and for the BMW X5 from December 2013.

The fully automatic BMW Parking Assistant – which will be available for the first time from autumn 2013 – also boasts extended functionality. This system helps the driver to identify and drive into parking spaces positioned parallel to the road. The new version of the Parking Assistant not only carries out the steering movements required to reverse across into the parking space, it also controls the accelerator and brake pedal and selects the correct gear – all the driver has to do is activate the relevant turn signal indicator and hold down the Parking Assistant button, and the vehicle will glide fully autonomously into the parking space selected. The fully automatic Parking Assistant will be available for the BMW 5 Series Sedan and BMW 5 Series Touring from November 2013 and for the new BMW X5 from December 2013.

So the 40d is the same engine as in the 335d? Why not call it 35d then..

I would be surprised if the finish of that individual colour in the press pic actually looks like that in real life. It's so beautiful (the finish, not the colour).

Imperial Blue diamond effect metallic and Mineral silver sound interesting!

I knew that the X5 would be available in Imperial Blue, Glacier Silver and Mineral Silver.
I had commented on a post about a month ago, which would be available until December.

True or false, Jason?

What I like is originality BMW having to equip a car like this X5:
For example they did not use red as outside, that very creative in their replacement using Blue, Brown and Beige.
That is very German.
That also apply it in the 5 Series, 7 Series, Audi A8, MB S Class, VW Touareg.

In most U.S., brands cars American and Asian want red saturate in red and that is
uncreative and not surprising.
And indeed many brands use up the same tone to bore.
General Motors, makes the mistake of using Crystal Red in all their cars , no differentiation.

Thank God we have the most creative car brand in the world and is BMW.!!!

I don't recall that 5DP was communicated as available at launch. By whom?

The ordering guide was actually straight forward that 5DP wouldn't be available until SOP 12/2013 - and Traffic Jam Assistant will be available SOP 12/2013. Again, who is claiming that it won't be available?

That's interesting. Will be interesting to see if the non-availability of 5AR will be a temporarily issue or a permanent decision. The tailgate is probably a liability-issue since we, as Americans, are obviously considered too dumb to operate a remote power tailgate..

This, however, is indeed in accordance with the initial ordering-guide.
