The BMW Company is working hard to realize new models from the X family. The new model in the range, BMW X2 has already been presented. There is also the official promotion of the new X4 model. In the end, the company is testing the 2019 BMW X5 SUV, which carries the G05 brand names. The new, fourth generation, this fantastic SUV will be available in the second half of 2018.
Otherwise, the current BMW X5 is available on the market since 2013. Though still strong in appearance and great performance, BMW decided it was time to succeed. Production of the fourth generation X5 model will take place at the company’s Spartanburg plant in South Carolina.
Design and Construction
The new generation of models will be more advanced and more modern than the current one. The new X5 will be built on the CLAR platform. This platform offers greater spaciousness and less weight. This is achieved thanks to the use of aluminum and carbon fiber reinforced plastics. Although the 2019 BMW X5 brings more space, the dimensions of the vehicle remain the same as the current model.
The new platform brings new possibilities for changes and modifications to the looks of vehicles. Consequently, a visible redesign of the outer appearance of the new generation model is announced. Thanks to the new design, the 2019 X5 gets better aerodynamics, compared to the current model. If we add to this the reduction in the overall weight of the vehicle, it is clear that the new model will be more economical than its predecessors.
2019 BMW X5 Engine Options
The new model brings forward drive aggregates. This will result in an improvement in the economy of the vehicle. Namely, BMW is working on improving the drive units for the new X5. The new model should receive diesel and gasoline engines with 4, 6 and 8 cylinders.
In principle, the aggregate supply will be similar to the current model, with the emphasis on reduced fuel consumption. In addition to conventional engines, hybrid powertrain versions are also expected. As announced, the 2019 BMW X5 Hybrid will be offered in many different versions.
Certainly, the offer will be completed by the inevitable 2019 BMW X5 M model. This version of the high performance models and sports elements attracts extraordinary attention.
