2011 BMW X5

The 2011 BMW X5 models are enhanced with new powertrains and updated design. With its distinctively contoured hood, large BMW kidney grille and dual round headlights, the new BMW X5 boasts an expressive front end that symbolizes power and presence.
Innovative new design elements and powertrains are the result of over 4,000 new parts created by BMW designers and engineers for the 2011 BMW X5. Two of the X5’s powertrains are all-new for 2011, creating the new X5 xDrive50i and X5 xDrive35i, in addition to the familiar BMW Advanced Diesel X5 xDrive35d.
For the 2011 model year, BMW has made the X5 xDrive35i available in two additional trim levels: Premium and Sports Activity.
The body design of the 2011 BMW X5 is characterized by well-balanced proportions that accentuate the X5’s powerful presence and agility. A long wheelbase, short front and rear body overhangs, and large light-alloy wheels provide a visual balance between the front and rear of the vehicle.
Square-shaped, carefully flared wheel arches hint at the X5’s all-wheel drive traction and other-roads capability. The body lines sweep upwards from the front and rear wheels, communicating BMW’s near-perfect 50-50 front-rear weight distribution which is so essential to the X5’s legendary driving dynamic.
The new BMW X5 xDrive50i takes its place as the flagship of the X5 family, yielding 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque from its twin-turbocharged 4.4 liter V-8 engine. BMW’s 2011 X5 xDrive35i receives a brand new 300-horsepower inline-6 gasoline engine.
Base model estimated mpg: 17/25
Estimated starting price: $46,675
