The BMW X5 is an executive luxury 5 door vehicle produced by BMW since 1999 as its first-ever SUV featuring a front-engine, all-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive layout options. Due to its outstanding on-road ability, BMW branded the X5 as a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) replacing the SUV. The BMW X5’s first-generation made a mark with the E53 between 1999-2006 coming in petrol inline-6s, V8s and diesel engines followed by the second-generation E70 between 2006-2013 featuring new tech advancements like the iDrive system, as well as a redefined nomenclature scheme e.g. X5 3.0si to X5 xDrive30i. The third generation joined the BMW family between 2013-2018 with the F15 initially coming in three engine options which advanced to more options later. The fourth and the latest generation of the BMW is between 2018 and now coming in all-wheel drive options only as of 2019 with more sophisticated updates promised for the 2020 release.
The second generation of the BMW came with new features and advancements that this article will review with a specific focus on the 2014 release. Coming in 4,6,8 or 12 gasoline and diesel engine options, one can choose between the Twinturbo/Inline 6/4 engine options for the XDrive 35i, sDrive 35i and xDrive35d and a Twinturbo/Inline V-8/4 for the xDrive50i all coming in a range between 2919 and 4395 displacement and a 255 / 4000 to a powerful 445 / 5500-6000 horsepower.
The BMW X5 is an excellent road partner for road trip lovers, not only that it comes in a number of options, it is also built to take over all road types with its new tech features like the xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system which gives you the ability to travel in all roads free of traction, an active steering that adjusts to the driving speed with ratio and force, and Adaptive M Suspension that adapts to road conditions and driver styles, and an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission.
Now that we have explored its ability, the 2014 BMW X5 proves to be one of a kind vehicle with its interior features. Coming with multi-contour adjustable front seats and rear comfort adjustable seats this on-road SAV will give you a luxury driving experience. With enough legroom for a comfortable trip, the BMW cares for your feet and this is why it comes with Luxury all-weather floormats and a luggage compartment mat to compliment the spacious room for all your cargo.
For a relaxed driving experience, the 2014 BMW X5 is equipped with the BMW Night vision with Pedestrian Detection, Head-up Display, the iDrive touchpad Controller and for a COMFORT driving mode is the Driving Dynamics Control with ECO PRO mode with just a push.
The 2014 BMW is indeed an attractive vehicle as it is decorated with Adaptive LED Headlights equipped with the headlight washing system, LED Corona headlight-rings and adaptive brake lights. The lights will keep you safe in terms of visibility but the 2014 BMW X5 is built with active and passive safety technologies like the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) Xenon Adaptive Headlights and to maintain the shape and rim position post loss in tire pressure is the Run-flat tires.
What I love about BMW is the ability to design cars that are luxurious yet efficient. It is definitely one of the cars that every road trip lover should have as it provides both safety, control, and power all at an economy friendly basis.
