For 2015, the high-performance X5 M rejoins the BMW lineup. Other than some minor equipment changes and a 1-mpg increase in the xDrive50i's city fuel-economy rating, there are no major changes to BMW's 2015 X5 SUV.
The 2014 X5 is all new as it enters its third generation. A new model joins the lineup as the base version: the sDrive35i, which is the first X5 to offer rear-wheel drive. All other X5 models continue to have all-wheel drive (xDrive) standard.
As in the beginning, BMW chooses to market its X5 for 2015 a "sports-activity vehicle" or SAV for short. We'll just stick with SUV, as the X5 isn't really any more capable than a comparably equipped Porsche Cayenne or Mercedes-Benz M-Class. However, when it comes to the "sport" part of the equation, the X5 quickly moves to the head of the class. Fresh from a complete overhaul last year, the 2015 BWM X5 SUV delivers an excellent combination of room, performance and economy. And, although it can't tackle rugged off-road terrain like a Land Rover Range Rover Sport or even the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the X5 leaves no doubt which luxury SUV is the master of the paved road.View BMW X5 vehicles for sale near you.
