BMW’s dive into the diesel market included not just the M550d xDrive, but the X5 M50d as well. Just like the M550d, the SUV version is powered by the 3.0 liter six-cylinder in-line diesel engine that delivers a total of 381 HP and a peak torque of 546 lb-ft. With this amount of power, the X5 M50d will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds, while top speed is limited to 155 mph. Fuel economy has been reported at 37.7 mpg.

Compared to a standard X5, the new M50d will be distinguished by an optimized aerodynamic balance and enhanced driving pleasure. In the space reserved for the fog-lamps, the new model has received new air intakes joined by horizontal bars painted in Ferric Grey metallic paint and race-inspired air-channeling flaps that sit below the side air intakes to optimize the car’s aerodynamic balance at high speeds. The BMW kidney grille features titanium-colored vertical bars, while the exterior mirror caps are painted in Ferric Grey metallic. The car sits on a standard set of 19-inch M light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design, but there are alsooptional 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in Ferric Grey metallic.

The new BMW X5 M50d will go on sale in Germany on June 16, 2012 at a price of 82,300 euro ($106,500 at the current exchange rates).

I’m pretty sure that this new concept of BMW will showcase more features at the Expo. This model has an aerodynamic balance and enhanced driving pleasure. I think this is very convenient to ride on.

I must say that this is the most powerful BMW I’ve ever seen with 3.0 liter cylinder in-line diesel engine, which can deliver a total of 381 horsepower. The interior is very stylish and spacious.

This BMW is very neat on the body paint. When it comes to interior detailing; it’s very spacious and refreshing to look at. It’s a big hooray for BMW.

It’s cute. I want to have that as soon as possible. It’s a lot more spacious and convenient to ride. I would be comfortable with that BMW X5.
