The most famous mid-size luxury crossover is coming completely new for the next year, as 2019 BMW X5. The fourth generation of the already legendary model is coming, probably sooner than most of us would expect. Considering that the outgoing model is present for only five years, this seems a little bit too quick. However, the company wants to keep its leading position on the market with this model, so this quick overhaul seems logical, considering that the competition is getting tougher and tougher. The new model is ready to hit the market in November, with a bunch of novelties.
2019 BMW X5 Redesign
The 2019 BMW X5 changes will be numerous. We have already seen the fourth-generation model and there is really plenty of amazing novelties to come. First of all, there is a new platform, which is definitely the main reason for such a quick redesign. With the new architecture, this crossover will be even better, offering amazing performances and overall driving experience.
Besides significant mechanical upgrades, the new 2019 BMW X5 also comes with a new styling. Just as it was expected, the new model comes with subtle changes. This company is well-known for its careful approach when it comes to styling. So, its no wonder that the new model looks kinda familiar. Compared to the previous generation, it comes with a little bit longer wheelbase. It is longer and wider, and also comes with a sportier layout, full of new bodywork. A well-known grille design is here, though headlights are a little bit slimmer now.
Will 2019 BMW X5 be more off-road capable?
If you choose a new “off-road” package, it will for sure. This package includes numerous mechanical and visual upgrades. First of all, there is a new air suspension on both axles, as well as a locking differential. Of course, there is a completely new underbody protection, to keep the car safe while driving on rocky roads. Finally, you will find a few hi-tech systems that will make your off-road ride easier.
The 2019 BMW X5 interior also comes with numerous novelties. Of course, there is a new dashboard design, which seems a little bit more upscale. The materials quality has been improved as well. Compared to the previous generation, controls seem more digitalized. Also, there is a new panoramic roof design. Finally, this crossover now offers an optional third row of seating.
Despite all styling changes, a list of standard equipment seems to be the biggest novelty for this redesign, when it comes to the interior. Even base models come fully equipped. Some of the highlights are things like two larger 12.3-inch screens at the center, as well as one 5-inch display at the center console, all hi-definition. The new infotainment system comes with a 20-GB hard drive for personal stuff. Of course, there are various kinds of connectivity, including Bluetooth and two USB ports.
2019 BMW X5 Engines
For the initial launch, the company has prepared two engines. Base models will come with a familiar 3.0-liter inline-six unit, which is good for about 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque.
If you are for some more serious performances, there is a familiar 4.4-liter V8, which comes with an 11-hp power boost and output that now goes up to 456 horsepower.
The 2019 BMW X5 M won’t be ready for the first year of production, but drivers will be able to enjoy its tremendous power already in the next year.
