2017
BMW X5 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 xDrive35i 4-door SUV AWD Automatic
The X5 delivers refinement, comfort, and a high-quality interior laden with technology. Its 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder, paired to a silky-smooth eight-speed automatic, supplies effortless acceleration and a good 21 mpg overall. In our tests we found the ride to be steady, with handling responsive and secure. The interior is super-quiet and impeccably finished, but the third-row seat is suitable only for kids. BMW's iDrive infotainment system has become more intuitive and, with familiarity, proves logical. Optional safety systems, such as automatic emergency braking, are comprehensive. A 4.4-liter V8 and a diesel are available. A plug-in hybrid with a 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder can drive on electric power for short distances.

2014-2016
2014 Redesign Year
BMW X5 2016
The 2014 redesign brought a smoother ride but less crispness and reduced agility. We would choose the standard six-cylinder engine to get the best blend of performance and fuel economy. Most X5s came with the optional Premium package. The backup camera is the only option we consider a must-have. While iDrive continues to flummox, its features have improved with faster response time and better voice controls. BMW offers a Driver Assistance Package, which includes lane departure, forward collision, and pedestrian warnings, along with city collision mitigation, a rear camera and head-up display. You can also get the Driver Assistance Plus option, which adds blind spot detection, surround view cameras and speed limit info. A plug-in hybrid with a 2.0-liter twin turbo four-cylinder engine joined the lineup for 2016.

2007-2013
2007 Redesign Year
BMW X5 2013 Trim Shown: 2013 Base
The 2007 redesign is longer and adds an optional, kids-only third row. The six- and eight-cylinder engines are powerful and the diesel version got 22 mpg in our tests. Even though iDrive makes the controls more complex, we like the handling, smooth engine, comfortable seats and impeccable fit and finish. Overall though, we think the complicated controls and stiff suspension will frustrate most buyers. A turbodiesel is available.

2000-2006
BMW X5 2006 Trim Shown: 2006 Sport Utility
More sport than utility, BMW's 'big' SUV started out with a stiff ride but comfortable seats and a plush interior. With the 4.4-liter V8, it accelerates like a sports car, with outstanding handling and braking to boot. While the 3.0-liter inline six is plenty powerful, our X5 tester equipped with this engine lifted two wheels in our avoidance maneuver testing -- despite the presence of stability control as standard equipment. For that reason, we rate its emergency handling as poor. While improvements to the platform for 2005 models cure that problem, handling is still unsettled at the limit. Cargo capacity and rear-seat room are modest. The X5 holds 35.5 cubic feet of cargo. Payload is 1,290 pounds, 220 of which can be loaded on the roof. Properly equipped, the X5 will tow 5,000 pounds.
