2011 BMW X5

Buyer's Guide

NEW FOR 2011:

- xDrive30i replaced with xDrive35i

- xDrive48i replaced with xDrive50i

- New eight-speed automatic transmission

For 2011, the BMW X5 receives two new engines. A TwinPower single-turbo six-cylinder engine upgrades the xDrive30i to the xDrive35i, while the xDrive48i receives the TwinPower turbo V8 from the X6 xDrive50i, turning it into the xDrive50i. Both upgrade from six- to eight-speed automatic transmissions with shift paddles. The xDrive35d and X5M models are unchanged.

The X5 comes with a choice of four engines. The xDrive35i uses a 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder with twin-scroll turbocharger and eight-speed automatic. The xDrive35d uses a 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder turbodiesel with six-speed automatic transmission. The xDrive50i uses a 4.4-litre TwinPower turbocharged V8 with eight-speed automatic. The X5M also uses a 4.4-litre TwinPower turbocharged V8, but with higher output and with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Features on the xDrive35i include 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, automatic adaptive bi-xenon headlamps with washers, adaptive brake lights, tire pressure warning system, rain-sensing wipers with heated washer jets, heated mirrors, alarm system with interior motion sensor, self-charging keyless fob, black roof rails, cruise control, heated multifunction leather-wrapped steering wheel with power tilt and telescopic adjustment, cruise control, split-folding rear seats, power windows, ten-way heated leatherette seats, CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary input, USB port, iPod connectivity, BMW Assist, Bluetooth connectivity, and iDrive.

The xDrive35d is similarly equipped.

The xDrive50i adds Park Distance Control, power-folding auto-dimming mirrors, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with compass, panoramic sunroof, Nevada leather upholstery, and ten-speaker sound system.

The X6M adds 20-inch alloy wheels, M-specific rear-bias xDrive, automatic power liftgate, Comfort Access, M mirrors, M front apron and side sills, anthracite roof liner, power tilt and telescopic M-specific steering wheel, ten-way heated leather M sport seats, and voice-controlled navigation system.

Trim: 35i Sport Package

Perfect SUV
I love it, that's all what I can say about it.
Drives like a sedan, thanks to BMW sport package. Comfort is on the top level. All those features are great, sound system one of the best out there.
Winter is no longer an issue.

2011 BMW X5

by QUABCHIMEAR on 12-21-2012
Finally a BMW I think I like...
Although It was a bit more expensive that I first imagined, it was well worth it in the end. I've test driven X4's and X3's and they don't have the same power as this X5. I've heard many good things about it and it surpassed my expectations. Great car for a high price. Would not recommend getting if you’re on a tight budget.

One thing that you should watch out for is the suspension. Sometimes it isn’t the greatest off-road and in muddy places. Although the gas mileage isn't the greatest and the interior could use a bit more refining, I'd recommend this car to anybody, any day.
