The third generation of the X5 was revealed in 2013 and was released soon after. Despite being quite new, the car is ready to be replaced by a new model soon enough. Because? Well, although it has not existed for a long time, the current model is actually based on the same platform as its predecessor. This means that driving is not as good or as safe as some of its new competitors. On top of that, BMW is also looking to optimize its manufacturing process and cannot do it with the old X5. The car that will change everything will be the future 2019 BMW X5 that has already been spied on several times. It seems that the development process could be almost finished, so it is likely that the car is only a few months after its discovery.
Like most other BMW’s, the next 2019 BMW X5 is not going to change much from the current model. In fact, we could say that his design will be evolutionary instead of revolutionary. From the first reports, and prototypes spied, it seems that the car will be a little larger than its predecessor. The wheelbase will certainly increase and can also be extended. The greenhouse will be brand new and although it may not be clear from spy photos, BMW confirmed recently. At the front, the new 2019 BMW X5 will benefit from much larger kidney grids than before and the headlights will be thinner. The rear will receive a larger roof spoiler, as well as all new taillights to refresh its appearance.
It’s safe to assume that the next X5 will share much of its interior with the new 5 Series. I hope you’ll receive the truly minimalist scoreboard that’s in the sedan, as well as most of the features offered by BMW. The digital instrument cluster, the iDrive widescreen system or even the aluminum and carbon fiber inserts will probably be used in the X5. The big difference between the two cars will be the center console which should be bigger and wider in the 2019 BMW X5. In addition to that, it seems that there will be much more space available for the rear passengers who will benefit from heated sliding electric seats and ventilation in high-end models.
The base model of the 2019 BMW X5 will likely have a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and four in-lines with over 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. Higher in the range, the car will feature a combination of 3.0-liter engines, powered by gasoline or diesel, which should be able to provide something between 230 and up to 370 horsepower and north of 400 lb-foot of torque. On the other hand, the range at the head of X5 will probably keep the 4.4-liter V8 biturbo. For this particular application, the engine will offer nearly 600 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque that can make the X5 the fastest crossover on the market. It is very likely that all cars will generally receive an 8-speed automatic, but things could change and, over time, BMW could offer a manual in some markets.
The BMW X5 is just another car giant vehicle based in Munich that is being transferred to the CLAR platform. The Bavarians do it with all possible models, but the problem is that they cannot get out at the same time. The 2019 BMW X5 is scheduled to launch the showroom early or mid-2018. Sales will begin later in the summer, or early fall of the same year. The price, thanks to the improvements, will increase a little. We cannot estimate exactly how much. The current BMW X5 with rear wheel drive costs $ 56,500. Later, prices rise rapidly. With an addition of all-wheel drive, you must give $ 2,300 more, while the diesel with the same arrangement is over $ 60,000. If you choose a hybrid, you get a price of $ 63,000. Depending on the choice of engine, the price only increases. V-8 under the hood means it must be separated by $ 73,300 and if you want to get the M performance version, you must have more than $ 100,000.
