X5 M

The BMW M performance derivative of the F15 X5 is designated F85 and was released in 2015. Its S63B44T2 4.4-liter V8 engine has 423 kW (567 hp) and 553 lb⋅ft (750 N⋅m) of torque, making it the most powerful engine ever developed for an all-wheel drive BMW at the time. The engine has M TwinPower Turbo and Valvetronic technologies, to deliver a 0–100 km/h (62 mph) time of 4.2 seconds.

An M-tuned xDrive all-wheel drive system provides traction. It distributes drive between the front and rear axles, while Dynamic Performance Control distributes torque between the 21-inch M Double-spoke light-alloy wheels.

X5 xDrive40e

The BMW X5 xDrive40e is the first plug-in hybrid released under the core BMW brand. The use of BMW's eDrive technology on the established X5 platform is a direct technology transfer from the BMW i cars, in particular, from the BMW i8 technology.

The X5 xDrive40e features a 2.0 L turbocharged gasoline engine 180 kW (241 hp) coupled to a 83 kW (111 hp) electric motor and a 9.0 kWh battery.

The production of the plug-in hybrid variant was scheduled to begin in April 2015. Retail deliveries (US) began in October 2015. Pricing started at US$62,100 (equivalent to £40,365) before applicable US government incentives.

The US EPA rated the X5 xDrive40e combined city/highway fuel economy at 68 mpg‑US (3.5 L/100 km; 82 mpg‑imp) equivalent (MPG-e) in all-electric mode (energy consumption of 59 kW-hrs/100 mi). The fuel economy in gasoline-only mode was rated at 24 mpg‑US (9.8 L/100 km; 29 mpg‑imp). EPA's all-electric range is 14 mi (23 km) with the car using some gasoline, and as a result, EPA's official range varies between 0 and 14 mi (0 and 23 km).

BMW X5 sDrive35i

BMW introduced the sDrive rear-wheel drive system with this generation of X5. sDrive aimed to increase agility over traditional rear-wheel drive SUVs.

BMW X5 emergency vehicles (2014-)

The BMW X5 has been made into emergency response vehicles with the engines sDrive25d, xDrive30d and xDrive40d.

The vehicle was unveiled at the 14th RETTmobil trade fair in Fulda (xDrive30d).

Engines

Petrol

Diesel

* North American xDrive35d models used the six-cylinder engine from the European-specification xDrive30d models. Vehicles with Diesel engine sold in the United States were since end of 2008 equipped with selective catalysator using Diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to reduce NOx emissions, while the BMW X5 sold in Europe did not use a selective catalytic reduction system (with AdBlue injection) until 2013 when the F15 X5 was released. These vehicles met the Euro 6 emissions standard.

Gearbox

All models include an 8-speed Steptronic automatic gearbox. With the option of a ‘Sport Steptronic’ automatic gearbox which had faster up & downshift times. It also included paddle shifters located behind the steering wheel for a sportier drive. The standard Steptronic transmission did not have paddle shifters and the only way to manually control the forward gears was to use the shifter in the centre console.

Performance

Production
