The new BMW X5 features an entirely revised range of engines and concise design modifications. All versions of the new BMW X5 are equipped with an eight-speedautomatic transmission as standard. The choice of petrol engines now comprises a V8 and a straight six-cylinder power unit, both of which feature BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and direct fuel injection. In addition, two variants of the new generation of the BMW straight six-cylinder diesel engine are available. Both all-aluminium power units are turbocharged and utilise the latest Common Rail direct injection technology. In spite of improved performance, fuel consumption and emission levels are up to 10 percent lower compared to its predecessor.
