2018 BMW X5: photos, the cost of those.  characteristics

It did not exist before 2000, model the BMW, which was to first enter the SUV segment, BMW X5. After 16 years of production line of off-road BMW has grown. X5 crossover became the starting point for the creation of four other off-road vehicles, three vehicles are in line below it, and a prestigious model over it. Since the release of X5, the model went through a change of three different generations. The first change occurred in 2006 when there was a model X5 E70, model year 2007. This model lasted until 2013, after which we met with the current generation F15 X5.

Notice the trend change between generations X5? Every six years or so, BMW will release an updated model. And this rate is likely to explain why we are seeing at the moment, these spy shots. The car, which is assumed to be a very early iteration of the next BMW X5. Off-road imprinted on the image can be described as the most early test mule on which the BMW engineers are beginning to feel the first technical improvements that eventually find their way to the next-generation model, BMW X5 2018 .


Body thanks to the abundant camouflage and shot him some important elements of the skin is very difficult to identify. It may be that in the test the concept of a new set just inside the filling, and the body to confuse viewers have installed the current version of the model (sometimes in the early stages of testing on the road car manufacturers have resorted to such a scheme camouflage). On top of that the next X5 fully camouflaged, it is no optics and other parts of exterior design, which it would be easy to learn.

At this early stage of testing, we can not say much about the next generation X5, but we can suggest some of them. If BMW does not depart from the established trend, we will have to see the fourth generation of the X5 in 2018. Until then, let’s take a look at the pictures and try to speculate.


Exterior BMW X5 2018

And so, what we see in the photographs with the alleged prototype of the new BMW X5 2018 model year. In the BMW X5 is not the side skirts, in fact, there is no front body kit and front lighting, those lights that look like they were taken from the 2000 BMW X5. The front panel can be the skeleton of the next X5 will look like, but at the moment, even the fact that it is speculation. If the hood that we will see in the production model, it will be greatly eased by the current model, but most likely, it’s just the bait used in this early test mule.


Looking at the side of the model, along the doors and fenders can be concluded that they are very similar to the elements used in the current X5. It is possible that the door can move to the next model and BMW X5.

On the other elements of the exterior it is too early to speculate, too little body kit and a lot of camouflage.


Interior BMW X5

The interior of the next generation X5 is unknown. It is logical to assume that the new model will be more comfortable and equipped according to the exchange to take on the development of high-tech features. This means that within the interior of the BMW will continue to move away from the Americanized style with an abundance of plastic and rough chopped lines. More quality leather, the increase in the number of premium materials in the interior and improving the quality of the plastic parts in the interior. All this will take place against the backdrop of improving the style. Presumably we can expect changes in the layout of the cluster in the dash, and the transition from the analog switch devices to the modern TFT display.

Screen razvlekatelno- information system, likely to become thinner and a little increase in size as it was more than once with the change of generations at the BMW. We will see moderate changes on the center console, but nothing too extreme. Also it is necessary to rely on the use of technology in the X5 gesture control, the one that stands in the 7 Series, and which appeared in the business class from BMW, 5 Series.In addition, in the BMW was tested function remote parking lot, waiting for her on the new BMW X5.


Powertrain new generation X5

Again, at this point is probably too early to talk about the lineup of engines and transmissions, but because something moves next X5 on snowy roads in Germany, then touch on this subject.

In its current form, X5 comes with a gasoline engine, 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine rated at 300 horsepower and 406 Nm of torque. There is also an option on diesel, 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 255 horsepower and 413 Nm of torque. The top-end version of the X5 xDrive50i is 4.4-liter V8 with 445 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque. It is the most popular variations of engines from BMW.

In case boomer not deviate from the current engine configurations, I suspect line engines, at least, will be changed to provide increase in capacity and improved fuel economy. Early departure “mule” on the road may indirectly talk about the trials of some components of the transmission. But this is just an assumption.


Prices and equipment of the new 2018 BMW X5

2018 BMW X5: photos, the cost of those.  characteristics

Currently, X5 starts from 3,330,000 rubles in its initial configuration xDrive35i – and ends at the level of 4,780,000 rubles for the version xDrive M50d. The price range is large, between the minimum and maximum configuration in Russia  there are four items:


xDrive30d for 3,490,000 rubles

xDrive25d Business of 3.700.000 rubles

xDrive40d of 3.800.000 rubles

xDrive50i of 4,280,000 rubles


Given the fact that the next X5 will come with new technical features and probably some changes in the lineup of engines, transmissions, chassis, then maybe the price of X5 in 2018- 2019 will rise again.


It is unlikely that growth will be less dramatic, as we have seen in the new model of the Swedish SUV XC90, the price tag is likely to rise in the region of $ 1.000- $ 1.500.


Rival BMW

Q7, arrived late compared to X5. Originally it debuted in 2005 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Ten years later, Audi Q7  received the new generation 2017 model year. It is characterized by a completely new design and new technologies. Q7 is now available in Russia in three trim levels – Comfort, Sport, Business. Another equipment has no additional designation, call it elementary. All equipment combined with standard all-wheel drive Audi Quattro. 3.0-liter V6 supercharged engine that produces 333 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque can easily disperse the SUV to 100 km / h in 5.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 209 km / h.

What can be said, building on the experience of reincarnation several previous generations of crossover BMW, from the first generation to the second, from the second to the third, is the fact that BMW we are unlikely to be disappointed when the serial sample shone his brand new painted under the lights of the exhibition hall .
