Used BMW X5
By the start of the new millennium, the SUV segment had shifted from rugged off road beasts to a more car-like Crossover appeal that featured unibody construction. The X5 marks BMW's entry into the segment, and what a debut it was. Sporting the best in all features that define a crossover (handling, comfort, luxury), the BMW X5 became a top seller in Allentown and Bethlehem.
The BMW X5 is available in a variety of engine choices and drive train configurations, with the model numbers signifying engine capacity. The basic engine is a 3 liter 6 cylinder engine which is able to produce an incredible 300hp and the same amount of torque thanks to turbo-charging. Something that is unique to the X5 is the diesel powered variant, which isn't usually offered by most manufacturers. The diesel version produces a lower 255hp but offers much more torque at 413 pounds. This makes the latter better at handling and grip on the roads of Allentown and Bethlehem.
Besides the fuel type, there are also other choices such as a turbocharged 4.4 liter V8 that can crank out a mindboggling 450hp along with 479 pounds of torque. Considering that the much larger Nissan Armada produces a relatively lesser amount of hp, you can imagine how high the X5's power to weight ratio is. Even though there are numerous engine choices, transmission is limited to an eight speed automatic.
The BMW X5 has always been packaged in a classy exterior with its traditional square taillights and slightly protruding back bumpers.
If you are going for a pre-2014 used BMW X5, you may notice the subtle changes in that and the previous models. These include the fixture of headlamps into the front grille, along with a slightly higher ground clearance.
The standard highlights of the base 35i and d include xenon headlamps, electronically controlled lift gate, vinyl themed interior, temperature controlled seats, a huge 10 inch display, GPS navigation and a fully fledged audio system sporting 9 speakers. Upgrading to the xDrive50i gets you leather stitched upholstery, cruise control, better audio system, DVD entertainment and a slew of safety features.
