2019 BMW X5 Technology

When you sit behind the wheel of the 2019 BMW X5, you’ll be greeted by the available iDrive 7.0 system that includes two 12.3-inch touchscreen displays. Here, you can access driver information like navigation. You can also link your smartphone via Bluetooth® and answer phone calls while on-the-go or stream music directly from your phone.

With available Apple CarPlay™ technology, you can fully integrate your smartphone with your car’s infotainment system to reduce distractions and access optimized smartphone apps like internet radio.

Go ahead and turn up the volume! You’ll hear your music through the available Harman Kardon® Surround Sound Audio with a 464-watt amplifier. This system places 16 speakers strategically around the cabin. You may feel like you’re in the front row at your favorite artist’s concert.

BMW X5 Performance

If you want an SUV that delivers on power, you’ll probably be happy with what’s under the hood of the BMW X5. This vehicle makes two engine options available. The first is a 3.0L BMW Twin Power Turbo I-6 engine that delivers 335 horsepower. With this engine you can launch yourself from 0-60 MPH in just 5.3 seconds.

If you want to get there even faster, opt for the 4.4L BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine. This engine generates 456 horsepower and gets you from 0-60 MPH in as little as 4.6 seconds.

These powerhouses are paired with an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission with manual shift mode. This allows you to enjoy the optimized performance of an automatic transmission and shift manually when more control is desired.

BMX X5 Safety Features

As you’re making your way around the city, the 2019 BMW X5 has several features available to help you navigate traffic safely. The available Active Driving Assistant, for example, includes features like Daytime Pedestrian Protection and Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation.

These systems scan up ahead for potential hazards like cars, bikes, and pedestrians. They issue a warning or hit the brakes as necessary to try to help you avoid an impending collision.

The BMW Active Protection System is also available. If an imminent accident is detected, it prepares the vehicle for impact by pretensioning the safety belts, closing the windows, and activating post-crash braking to prevent additional roll-through impacts.

This system also includes Fatigue and Focus Alert that issues a warning if it detects erratic driving behaviors that imply you may be too drowsy or distracted to drive safely.
