Preview of the 2019 BMW X5

 

Slowly but surely, new BMW models are rolling out to dealerships across the country, and Fields BMW Northfield is here to give you a sneak peek at the 2019 BMW X5. While the exterior may look familiar, the new BMW X5 has some exciting new features beyond aesthetics. Find out why this new Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) may be the perfect fit for you.

Exterior

There were some subtle changes to the exterior of the 2019 model. You’ll notice that the LED highlights sit on the sides of a larger grille., and the taillights have a new look, displaying a 3D effect.

Structure

The BMW X5 now sits on new architecture called CLAR. This ensures an even better ride with more technology ingrained. It’s longer than its predecessor and has a bigger wheelbase as well. More additions include a double-A-arm front axle. The base and sport suspensions are both steel for a steady ride. With standard Dynamic Damper Control, you can tailor the drive to be more comfort or sport oriented.

Engine

You can opt for the XDrive40i with a 3.0-liter I-6 that delivers 335 horsepower. Upgrade to the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that raises the horsepower to 456. Both powertrains come with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Technology

The BMW X5 will be the first in the lineup to include an available camera to monitor driver’s eye movements for signs of fatigue. Another innovative amenity being introduced is the optional Driving Assistant Professional package with Traffic Jam Assistant. This technology gets the BMW brand that much closer to self-driving cars, as it allows for a short period of hands-free driving while in traffic.

The 2019 BMW X5 will make its debut by November. We look forward to having these phenomenal vehicles in our BMW dealership near Chicago for all drivers to see. To find out more about the new BMW X5, contact us as soon as today!
