For 2014 BMW took their successful three row crossover back to the cosmetic
surgeon for a face lift inside and out. The same three engine options as
2013 return for the 2014 model year and we expect a tweaked version of the
M5''s twin-turbo V8 to make a cameo for
the 2015 BMW X5M.
While the engine lineup remains the same, power is up slightly in the V8
model to 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of
torque. The 3.0L diesel model makes a return for 2014 as the slower but
more efficient option.
If you're shopping the X5, you should also put the Mercedes ML and perhaps
even the Jeep Grand Cherokee on your short list. The Acura MDX SH-AWD
compares well to the 3.0L turbo model,
but the Japanese competitor is easily outclassed by the X5's V8.

With seven seats, an upmarket interior and great build quality, BMW's X5
makes a formidable family car. What's more, BMW has made the latest version
practical and luxurious. The pair of optional seats in the boot are useful,
and when they're not in place the car has lots of luggage space. The X5 has
