Performance Specs

The 2021 BMW X5 delivers a smooth ride in just about any driving conditions. It's prepared to power through the elements, maintain traction at all times, and always ready to accelerate like a sports car.

Under the hood, you'll have four exciting powertrains to choose from. This dynamic lineup includes everything from a performance inspired twin turbo engine to a hybrid powertrain that's both sporty and easy to charge. Some of the impressive numbers they put up include:

  • 4.4L BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8 that gets up to 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque.

The available hybrid pairs the 3.0L base engine with an electric motor. Together, they offer up to 389 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque.

All four powertrains are available with xDrive all-wheel drive, so you can enjoy a stable drive on any terrain. They also feature an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission. It not only manages your drive but gives you the option to take control with Sport and Manual modes, plus paddle shifters.
