What Is the 2022 BMW X5?

The BMW X5 mid-size luxury SUV seats five or seven, depending on the seating configuration. It’s available with rear- or all-wheel drive and is powered by a standard 335-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine or a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 that makes 523 hp in the M50i and 600 to 617 hp in the X5 M.

The black-and-red color scheme carries over to the cabin, which is finished in black leather with red piping and accent stitching. Around 350 units are destined for the U.S.

Should I Buy the 2022 BMW X5?

The X5 is a luxurious, comfortable and quick luxury SUV. However, some of its active-safety systems can be too sensitive, and the optional gesture-based control system is gimmicky. The third-row seat is handy, but bear in mind that the space is best left to kids.

2022 X5 Sdrive 4.0

Only had the X5 for 4 weeks now but so far it is an awesome vehicle that runs and drives great. It appears to be very well built with good body lines and fit. Some of the safety features and electronic systems take some time to get set up properly for the best driving experience but the reward is well worth the time as everything is customizable for two drivers. Only bad thing is that a mower along the roadside threw a stone and put a chip in our paint and the paint isn’t self healing.
