Cons
Size, weight and length make it unwieldy around town
Slow gas pedal response makes base engine feel less powerful than it's rated
Cargo space utility is limited by the high load floor

Pros
Strong V-8 engines
Massive towing capacity
High-class interior
Business-class looks
Comfortable ride quality on Denali

Cons
Limited cargo space
High top-end price
Floor height hampers leg room
Most crossovers do people better

The 2020 BMW X5 comes with rear wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.New turbo V8-powered M50i model joins the lineup.Keyless entry now standard on 40i base trim.Debut of plug-in hybrid xDrive45e expected in early or mid-2020.

Pros
Strong performance from both models
Luxurious, comfortable cabin lives up to its price tag
Spacious cabin and cargo area

Cons
Small mirrors and wide roof pillars create blind spots
Limited interior storage
Wide doorsills inhibit entry and exit

By:

This year, the big change to the X5 lineup can be summed up in three words: even more performance. BMW has added a fourth member to the stable, the M50i, which pummels the asphalt with 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque from its turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8—up 67 horsepower and 74 lb-ft from the xDrive50i's similar 4.4-liter V-8. The M50i package includes a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, an M Sport exhaust, bigger brakes, and sportier suspension tuning with adaptive dampers.

Pros
Inspiring engines,
top-notch build quality,
easy-to-use infotainment system.

Cons
Steering feel is in short supply,
third row is for small fry only,
no Android Auto capability.
