Pricing and Which One lớn Buy

We love sầu saving money almost as much as we love great performance, & that"s why we think the xDrive40i is the X5 to buy. With a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.8 seconds, it"s got sports-sedan acceleration, comes with all-wheel drive sầu, and is a relative sầu bargain in this price class. We"d recommend adding the Premium package for its head-up display, four-zone automatic climate control, remote engine-start capability, Harman/Kardon stereo system, wireless phone charging, & Wi-Fi hotspot.

Engine, Transmission, và Performance

For 2021 there are now three distinct powertrains, each associated with a different X5 model. X5s wearing the sDrive40i or xDrive40i badge are powered by a 335-hp turbocharged inline-six. The plug-in hybrid xDrive45e comes with a turbocharged inline-six và an electric motor that combine for 389 horsepower. At our test traông xã, that powertrain motivated an X5 lớn 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. (We"ve sầu also tested the 40i—it managed a quiông chồng 4.8-second run khổng lồ 60 mph.) Last but not least, the M50i"s 523-hp twin-turbo V-8 enables it to lớn rush khổng lồ 60 mph in less than four seconds. All three powertrains are paired with an eight-tốc độ automatic transmission, and none of them will leave drivers wanting for power in virtually any driving situation. The X5"s refined ride and stable handling are a big improvement compared with the previous-generation model, as is its steering, which feels more connected & direct but still not exactly what we"d consider sporting. The Q7 still has the X5 beat in this area, but it"s a cthất bại match. Pitch the X5 into a fast corner, và it holds on reliably & rewards the driver with a predictability that"s missing from the GLE-class. And if you need lớn tow, know that the X5"s maximum towing capađô thị is a stout 7200 pounds no matter which engine it has.
