What Are The Different X5 Models?

The 2021 BMW X5 comes in four models: 40i, 45e, M50i, and M.

Characteristic of any Ultimate Driving Machine, luxury comes standard in the X5 and only escalates as you climb the trim levels. In turn, the key differences between each of the trims stem from performance. 

The 2021 BMW X5 sDrive40i starts the bidding off exceptionally high with a 335 horsepower 3.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder on a rear-wheel-drive platform. Napa area SUV shoppers craving elevated all-weather traction can opt for intelligent all-wheel-drive technology on the X5 xDrive40i.

The 2021 BMW X5 made headlines for the introduction of the plug-in hybrid 45e, which integrates an electric motor and brake energy regeneration to deliver 50 MPGe and up to 30 miles of all-electric range –the longest of any BMW plug-in hybrid. Put it all together, and you get an electrifying driving experience amounting to 389 horsepower.

For some Napa drivers, an SUV should be as quick off the line as it is spacious and luxurious. This is where the 2021 BMW X5 M50i comes in. Furnished with a 4.4-liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine, the M50i delivers a strapping 523 horsepower. To help you tame such power accordingly, BMW M essentials, namely the M Suspension, M Sport Differential, and M Sport Brakes come into the mix.

Shoppers looking to make the most of their SUV should direct their focus towards 2021 BMW X5 M. The V-8 of its predecessor receives an M Performance tune to deliver 600 horsepower. Aesthetically, the X5 M carries the most aggressive stance of the bunch due to its staggered wheel configuration and striking M hallmarks like the M quad tailpipes, M rear spoiler, and Shadowline exterior trim.
