Your review of the 2022 BMW X5 will initially lead you to its performance equipment. This equipment is identical to the 2021 model’s performance features across the trim lines. The sDrive40i and the xDrive40i are offered with a 335-horsepower, turbo 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine. This is balanced with an eight-speed auto transmission and adaptive suspension dampers. A plug-in hybrid engine is offered with a turbo V6 engine to produce 389 horsepower. The M Sport trim level is powered by a turbo V8, a 4.4-liter engine that produces 523 horsepower. It is combined with all-wheel drive, a sport exhaust system, a sport-tuned adaptive suspension, and other upgraded mechanical parts.


The overall body style of the X5 has not changed between 2021 and 2022, but the Black Vermillion trim level has been added to the mix. If you choose to drive this 2022 trim level, your vehicle will have unique exterior paint and accents for differentiation. You will find defined haunches, LED-topped headlights, a segmented grille with vertical bars, and an athletic front fascia throughout the full trim lineup.


The X5 is a well-appointed crossover SUV with all the features you would expect a BMW to have. Entry-level features include a sunroof, a navigation system, a 10-speaker sound system, simulated leather upholstery, smart device integration, and more. Higher X5 trims have leather upholstery, a four-zone climate management system, remote engine start, gesture control, a heads-up display, and other elite features.
