Serving Utica, NY

The X5 is BMW’s popular midsize crossover. Its thoughtful range of luxuries combined with its robust functionality, has made it a top contender in your quest for a new vehicle today. At BMW of Utica, you can appreciate extensive diversity throughout our luxury crossover SUV inventory. This makes it easier for our customers to locate a new vehicle that stands up to meet all of their expectations. However, before you narrow down your list of possibilities, you need to learn about the differences between the 2019 and 2020 BMW X5.


In 2020, the BMW X5 introduces its M50i trim level. With this new trim level, the X5 is available with a turbocharged V8 engine that produces 523 horsepower. The base trim level’s capabilities are unchanged between 2019 and 2020. This trim level comes with a turbo V6 engine that puts out 335 horsepower. A mid-level option is a V8 engine that generates 456 horsepower for the 2019 and 2020 versions.


Except for minor badging differences for the 2020 BMW X5 M50i trim, the exterior design is unchanged between 2019 and 2020. One of the more significant reasons for this is the fact that the 2019 model year debuted the X5’s fourth generation with beautiful updates to aesthetics throughout. The style is undeniably sophisticated with prominent height, chiseled sides, and a signature grille. However, it has sporty touches like a front skid plate, an air vent near the front fenders, and sharp angles through the headlights and foglamps.


The standard and available features for the 2020 X5 are equivalent to those in the 2019 version. A few of these features are Digital Key, a remote engine start, a digital cockpit, a navigation system, and an auto climate control system with a digital interface. The X5 also has easy-fold rear seats, a split liftgate, premium leather seats, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, active driving assistance, and other gear.

The best way to experience the difference that these features make to your time on the road is to take the X5 out for a test drive. Reach out to the BMW of Utica reps today to schedule your behind-the-wheel experience.
