The 2011 BMW X5 is a mid-size luxury crossover SUV that aims to balance a hefty cargo capacity with the driving dynamics and acceleration that BMW is known for. The BMW X5 has been restyled for the 2011 model year, and it seats up to seven passengers and can handle a maximum of 75 cubic feet of cargo with the rear accommodations folded down. In base trim the BMW X5 offers a long list of standard equipment, including HID headlights, dual automatic climate control, BMW's leatherette seat covers and 18-inch wheels. The top of the line edition of the SUV provides leather seats, a panoramic sunroof and a number of other comfort and convenience items.
The 2011 BMW X5 comes in three distinct engine flavors. The entry-level xDrive35i trim features a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder motor that generates 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. Fuel mileage for this engine comes in at 17 miles per gallon in city driving and 25 miles per gallon on the highway. The top tier xDrive50i offers a 4.4-liter V-8 engine that makes use of twin-turbochargers on its way to producing 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Fuel mileage drops to 14 miles per gallon in stop and go driving, and 20 miles per gallon during highway cruising. Each of these two engines is shifted through an eight-speed automatic transmission. A mid-level option can be found in the xDrive35d, which provides a turbodiesel inline six-cylinder engine that cranks out 265 horsepower and 425 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, this most efficient of the three X5 drivetrains returns fuel mileage of 19 miles per gallon around town and 26 miles per gallon on the highway. All editions of the BMW X5 come with standard all-wheel drive.
