BMW took a huge risk in 2000, as it chose to dip its proverbial toes into the SUV pool by releasing the X5. This model afforded customers an alternative to big and bulky SUVs that were simply wrapped in a nice tuxedo, like the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. The X5 combined SUV performance with the refinement that BMW buyers expected. This tradition carries on as the X5 journeys into the 2013 model year.Read more »
The 2013 BMW X5 xDrive35i starts the X5 lineup off with a 3.0-liter, turbocharged in-line six-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower and carries a $47,500 base MSRP. The X5 xDrive35i delivers this power to all four wheels, via BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system and an eight-speed automatic transmission. On the outside, the X5 xDrive35i features a Xenon adaptive headlight system with auto leveling, LED headlight rings, intermittent, rain-sensing wipers, matte black roof rails, chrome exhaust tips and 18-by-8.5-inch star spoke wheels wrapped in 255/55R18 tires. Inside the 2013 X5 xDrive35i there are a 10-way power front seats with driver seat memory, split-folding rear seats, leatherette upholstery, three-spoke, leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, automatic climate control, and an AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo system with 10 speakers and a 200-watt amplifier.
The 2013 BMW X5 xDrive35d replaces the gasoline engine in the previous two trim levels with a 265-horsepower, 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel unit. This adds an extra 3 mpg to the X5’s city and highway fuel economy, bringing it up to 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. With this new engine also comes a new six-speed automatic transmission, but it does boast the same AWD system as the previous trim levels. On the outside of the xDrive35d it features the 18-by-8.5-inch rims wrapped in 255/55R18 rubber, Xenon adaptive headlights with automatic leveling, LED headlight rings, Intermittent rain-sensing wipers, matte black roof rails and chrome exhaust tips. On the inside, the xDrive35d borrows the xDrive35i Premium’s 10-way power driver and passenger seats, power mirrors, and power tilting, telescoping steering wheel. It also features four-way lumbar support, split-folding rear seats, Nevada leather upholstery, panoramic moonroof, automatic climate control, tinted rear glass and ambient lighting.
The 2013 BMW X5 xDrive35i Sport Activity comes with the same packages and driveline as the xDrive35i Premium, but BMW increased its electronically controlled speed from the 130 mph found on the xDrive35i and xDrive35i Premium to 150 mph. On the exterior of the X5 xDrive35i Sport Activity it features Y-spoke 20-by-10-inch wheels with 275/40R20 rubber on the front and 20-by-11-inch wheels with 315/35R20 tires on the rear, shadowline exterior trim, and titanium-colored air inlets. Inside the xDrive35i Sport Activity tosses in a two-way thigh support to the x35i Premium’s power seats, anthracite headliner and a three-spoke sport steering wheel with all of the same features as the xDrive35i Premium.

Slightly less expensive, but less power.
Good power and low price, but only a seven-speed transmission.
Impressive range of powertrains, but higher trims get outrageously priced.
Great base price and SRT8 trim is competitive, but V-6-equipped models are sluggish.
