Meet the 2014 BMW X5
While most of us focus on the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and on all the details there is to know about it, the first official images of the third-generation BMW X5 have quietly leaked online. However, this doesn’t mean you are going to see the new X5 in Detroit, as BMW has set the official debut for later this year — most likely for Geneva Motor Show.
As no surprise, the next X5 is a combination of design elements we have seen in previous launched BMW models: the front fascia from the 3-Series, the air vents on the front bumper from the 4-Series and the taillights from the X3. The interior — although not revealed in here — it is also rumored to offer higher-quality materials, improved technology and, for the first time, a third-row seating option.
The engine lineup is still a secret, but rumors suggest the next X5 will be offered with a choice of two new four-cylinder engines, while the M version will keep the 4.4-liter V-8 turbo engine with an output of 547 horsepower.
