• Facelift BMW X5 M Prototype Reveals New Taillight Details

It also hides the front fender side air outlets

BMW is testing the facelift X5, both standard and M version, for about a year now. We’ve even seen the SUV testing around Nürburgring at the end of March 2022. But, these prototypes were hiding all the new elements, like the new headlights, grille, and front bumper under camouflage.

The prototype caught testing this time starts dropping part of the camouflage and reveals some new details about the facelift X5 M.

The latest prototype caught testing seems to be in the latest stage of development, which means an official debut should happen shortly. The car is wearing its new taillights for the first time, and you can also spot the new graphics hidden under the camouflage.

What is also new on this prototype is the front fender side air outlet, and that’s also under camouflage. This means the outlet should also get a new design.

Other than the new elements, the facelift X5 M will get the usual mid-cycle upgrades, which will include a redesigned grille, revamped headlights, and updated bumpers.

The interior will also be updated with BMW’s latest iDrive 8 infotainment system. It’ll take inspiration from the revised 8 Series range, which means the dual-screen layout with a larger screen for the instrument cluster and new customization options for the interior.

Under the hood, you should expect the same 4.4-liter V-8 engine delivering 600 horsepower in the base version and 617 horsepower in the Competition version.
