BMW X5 and X7 Updates For Summer 2019

BMW X5 and X7 Updates For Summer 2019
83
COMMENTS

Per BMW, the following updates come for the X5 and X7 in the Summer.

BMW X5 and BMW X7: new power units, plus more exterior paint finishes, light-alloy wheels and leather trim variants.

The choice of power units for the new BMW X5 will be expanded with the addition of a new entry-level engine in the form of a four-cylinder diesel available for the Sports Activity Vehicle from August 2019. The two-litre engine in the new BMW X5 xDrive25d develops maximum output of 170 kW/231 hp and peak torque of 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) with the help of BMW TwinPower Turbo technology comprising multi-stage turbocharging and common-rail direct injection. The efficient diesel engine teams up with the eight-speed Steptronic transmission and xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system. The engine’s emission control system includes an SCR catalyst for reducing nitrogen oxide emissions, helping the new BMW X5 xDrive25d to satisfy the requirements of the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions norm.

The summer of 2019 will also see the launch of another exceptionally efficient version of the Sports Activity Vehicle in the form of the BMW X5 xDrive45e (petrol consumption combined: 2.0 – 1.7 l/100 km [141.2 – 166.2 mpg imp]; electric power consumption combined: 23.5 – 20.3 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 47 – 39 g/km). This plug-in hybrid model is powered by a combination of a six-cylinder in-line petrol engine and an electric motor, which together generate system output of 290 kW/394 hp. The second-generation BMW X5 with electrified powertrain accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.6 seconds. The BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system is on hand to deliver sporty driving pleasure on the road and supremely assured performance off it by distributing the drive power from both engine and motor to all four wheels. The latest battery cell technology on board the new X5 xDrive45e helps it to cover distances of up to 80 kilometres (50 miles) on electric power alone.

Customers will also enjoy an even wider choice of optional extras. The body colour Manhattan metallic, 22-inch M light-alloy wheels in twin-spoke design, the BMW Individual Alcantara headliner in Anthracite or Ivory White and BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line trim with extended features will all be added to the BMW X5 options list from August 2019.

New options are being made available for the new BMW X7, too. From August 2019, it will be possible to upgrade the cabin of the luxury segment’s first ever Sports Activity Vehicle with BMW Individual Merino full leather trim in three different colours and a BMW Individual headliner in Anthracite or Ivory White Alcantara. The palette of colours for the exterior will now expand to include the Manhattan metallic shade and BMW Individual paint finishes Tanzanite Blue metallic and Ametrine metallic. And the BMW X7 can likewise now be specified with BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line trim with extended features.

New optional extra: BMW Drive Recorder.

The BMW Drive Recorder is another new addition to the options list. It can be ordered in conjunction with Parking Assistant Plus and is available for the new BMW 3 Series Sedan, BMW 7 Series, BMW 8 Series, new BMW X5 and new BMW X7. The BMW Drive Recorder uses the cameras of the various driver assistance systems to record video footage from different points around the vehicle, before saving the recordings so they can be either watched later on the Control Display when the car is stationary or exported via the USB port.

Drivers can therefore shoot videos while driving through spectacular scenery, for example, or performing impressive manoeuvres on the race track, and then send them to their mobile device and share them. Recordings can be up to 40 seconds in length, comprising the 20 seconds of video saved immediately prior to the Drive Recorder being activated and the next 20 seconds. The Drive Recorder can be started at any time from the iDrive menu. Another benefit of the system is that, in the event of a collision, the 20 seconds before the accident and the 20 seconds following it are automatically recorded and saved, so they can be referred back to in any subsequent reconstruction of the incident.

Nothing on the M50i, and yet they announced the updated M550i with the 850 powertrain.

"BMW 5 Series: new V8 engine, plug-in hybrid model now also with all-wheel drive, attractive optional extras and packages.

A generation change for the V8 engine and another plug-in hybrid model make the range of drive systems available for the BMW 5 Series even more appealing. From July 2019 the BMW M550i xDrive Sedan (fuel consumption combined: 10.0 9.9 l/100 km [28.25 28.5 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 227 225 g/km) will be fitted with the latest update of the eight-cylinder engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. The new V8 has an optimised crankcase and larger turbochargers positioned in the V between the cylinder banks, and develops maximum output of 390 kW/530 hp plus peak torque of 750 Nm (553 lb-ft). The eight-cylinder teams up with the eight-speed Steptronic transmission, intelligent all-wheel drive and model-specific chassis technology to generate standout dynamics."

I was just thinking the same thing... Part of why I am waiting to decide on an X5 was whether the power bump that was rumored for the 50i was real. When I test drove one, and talked to my SA, he stated that all he knew was that the M50i would be more of an appearance package, with no power bump, but people on here, and Bimmerfest seem convinced there will be the upgraded V8 for the 2020 model... (that said, the V8 power is still plenty good currently)

I think it would be in the dealership's best interest to downplay any rumors of an upcoming car and to try to sell you the car they have on their lot. My local dealer played dumb when I asked them about the M50i and tried very hard to put me in a xDrive50i. To be fair though, there is nothing official out there from BMW on the M50i as far as I know, and seeing that it's not mentioned in this press release, hopefully we'll see something by the Fall and not have to wait another full model year.

This may be true if I had ever bought something off the lot from him, I always do a custom order. He was also aware that I wouldn't be making a decision until late summer or fall, so the 2020 would be what I would order anyway. I do chalk it up somewhat to the fact that, even though he has been there forever, he may not really keep up with stuff on the enthusiast end.

Its for Europe. I have not yet read anywhere that BMW or VW or Audi will once again make new diesels for the US market since the VW dieselgate hit the fan.
The wording in that news release said - "...the new BMW X5 xDrive25d to satisfy the requirements of the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions norm."

Thanks I overlooked that last sentence. BMW says they are up in the air for diesel return to USA and said they are not counting it out.

Hmm... not sure on the recorder. Yes will be nice for track (x5? lol), or cool scenery. Question is if in an accident, will the other party, or Government have a legal right to request your video?

Also agree, 40 sec is nothing considering how cheap storage is these days.
