2020 BMW X5: Powerful Performance Capabilities

BMW X5 Engine SpecsA thrilling commute is just one throttle away when it comes to the 2020 BMW X5. This SAV® is equipped with a standard 3.0L TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine that’s capable of producing 335 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque.

However, those who want an even more powerful ride can opt for the vehicle’s optional engines…

  • 4.4L BMW TwinPower Turbo V8: 456 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque
  • 4.4L BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo V8: 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque

Any of these engines can provide a commute unlike any other you’ve experienced before.

When working your way up to the top speed of 155 MPH when properly equipped, you’ll have the help of an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission with automatic Sport and Manual shift modes. This 8-speed transmission allows for flawless gear shifts that also helps you feel more connected to your commute.

What could possibly make this transmission any better, you may be wondering? Well, standard paddle shifters are equipped on the steering wheel to make shifting gears without taking your hands off the wheel possible.

2020 X5 Luxury Interior

BMW X5 Interior

Being a luxury SAV®, you can bet your bottom dollar that the interior of the 2020 BMW X5 is equipped with the latest and greatest amenities. The 3-stage heated front seats and optional Vernasca Leather upholstery are just two ways that the X5 strives for the upmost perfection in terms of comfort.

You’ll also have the Live Cockpit Professional system to make your travels more connective and informative. This system includes two 12.3-inch displays. The first display is the home of the Dynamic Digital Instrument Cluster, which is a fully digital system that displays information like speed, fuel levels, and song information.

The second screen is part of the iDrive 7.0 system, also known as the Central Information Display. Here, you’ll make your song selection, view navigation directions, and connect your smartphone via Bluetooth® or Apple CarPlay®.

BMW X5: Standard Safety Features

The Active Driving Assistant includes driver-assistive features that are classified as active features, or those that help prevent a collision. These active features include:

  • Daytime Pedestrian Protection
  • Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation
  • Lane Departure Warning

These features use a variety of intelligent technologies to constantly monitor the area around your X5 and alert you of potential hazards.

Your passive safety features, or those that help reduce the severity of injury, are the features of the Active Protection System. The features of this system—like the pretensioning of safety belts, closing of windows, and activating post-crash braking—help make the standard safety features of your BMW X5 as round as possible.
