sDrive40i and xDrive40i
The base 2024 BMW X5 sDrive40i starts at $65,200. It comes standard with rear-wheel drive and boasts a 375-horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder engine. In terms of fuel economy, it gets 23 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. The automatic eight-speed transmission is a mild hybrid system that provides a small horsepower boost.
The xDrive40i features the same engine with virtually the same horsepower and fuel economy. It starts at $67,500.
Standard features are plentiful in the X5, even with this base trim. Like all models, the sDrive40i comes with a brand-new curved 14.9-inch infotainment display, with smartphone integration navigation and satellite radio. On top of that, the base X5 includes a 10-speaker audio system, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a power-adjustable steering column, dual-zone climate control, customizable ambient lighting, and a panoramic sunroof. The synthetic seats are heated, and the driver’s seat is power-adjustable (with memory settings). Other standard features include a power rear liftgate, adaptive LED headlights, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
Basic driver assistance features include forward collision warning, automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors.
With the addition of the Driving Assistance Professional Package, you’ll get extra assistance features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, front cross-traffic detection, and automatic lane change. And even hands-off driving up to 85 mph!
For those of us with less-than-desirable parking skills, there’s finally a solution: the Parking Assistance Package. This adds self-parallel and perpendicular parking, a 360-degree Surround View monitor, and Active Park Distance Control.
The Premium Package gives you remote start, a head-up display, LED lights, and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system.
In addition to those packages, you can choose from individual features such as a panoramic Sky Lounge LED moonroof, massaging seats, and quad-zone climate control.
The plug-in hybrid 2024 BMW X5 xDrive50e, starting at $72,500, utilizes the same engine in the base trims. It comes paired with a 194-horsepower electric motor, providing a combined 483 horsepower. The 25.7-kWh battery provides enough energy to allow the X5 to travel up to 40 miles on electric power alone.
All-wheel drive comes standard with this trim and it builds upon many of the features in the X5 xDrive40i. Some of the features gained at this trim level include, a fast charger, 2-axle air suspension, an acoustic sound generator for warning pedestrians, and a unique instrument cluster.
The 2024 BMW X5 M60i amps up the performance of the X5 in a big way. The vehicle comes standard with a 523-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine. Like the base trim, it comes with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system.
On the inside, you’ll get heated and ventilated multi-contour sports seats, the premium Harman Kardon sound system, and heads up display.
Next, the M60i starts at just $89,300, but some enticing optional packages can make the cost go up even further.
The M Sport Package adds numerous performance upgrades. Some of these upgrades include an adaptive M Sport suspension, exhaust, brakes, a differential, and 20-inch M Star alloy wheels.
At this level, the X5 offers a 20-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system, 2-axle air suspension, a heated steering wheel and front armrests as further options.
Finally, also utilizing the mild-hybrid system, the specially tuned 4.4-liter V8 in the M Competition generates 617 horsepower. The M Sport 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission, adaptive suspension, and 21-inch alloy wheels add further to the vehicle’s performance enhancements. On top of that, the M Shadowline lights, M Servotronic steering, and Track Mode drive settings really let you get the full driving experience.
The M Competition model starts at $122,300. It includes the Parking Assistant Professional Package with driver recorder, Merino leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped dashboard, and carbon-fiber interior trim.
Additionally, other options like M Compound brakes and 21- or 22-inch wheels come available.
