This round of photographs show the vehicle only has modest changes compared to
the one spied earlier in the month. However, we do see a difference in the
tailpipes, which are now trapezoidal instead of oval. Also, wider, shorter side
view mirrors appear to be present on this model. Roof rails do not appear on
this version, unlike the previous prototype. The wider shots of the X5's
front-end show the best angle yet of the new headlights.
New photos have surfaced featuring the upcoming facelifted BMW X5. Due out in
mid-2010, the SUV should get its formal introduction at January's Detroit Motor
Some are saying that a new engine may become available with the freshened BMW
X5. We expect this to be the twin-turbo 408 horsepower 4.4-liter V8 engine as
the X5 xDrive50i.
The facelifted X5 will have new front and rear bumpers, as well as new lighting
which resembles the 5er GT. A next-generation iDrive will be detailed on the
newer, bigger LCD screen.
