Why mess with a winning formula? BMW has made just a few changes to its best-selling X5 for the 2018 model year. This vehicle was named the best three-row luxury midsize SUV for families by U.S. News and World Report. Here's what you need to know about this impressive SUV, which can seat up to seven when equipped with the optional third row.


BMW's five outstanding engine options for both the 2017 and 2018 X5 models mean that it's the ideal SUV for most drivers. The car has been equipped with a new faster-shifting automatic transmission for 2018. If you prize fuel economy, opt for either the 255-horsepower diesel engine or the plug-in hybrid. If speed is the priority, you can choose the 300-hp V6, a 445-hp V8, and an incredible 567-hp V8.


Not too much has changed with the appearance of the X5 from 2017 to 2018. If you have eagle eyes you might spot new trapezoid-shaped tailpipes on V6-powered trims. Several trims are now available with brand-new 21-inch wheels equipped with M performance tires. Both vehicles are equipped with standard leatherette upholstery and leather trim; you can also upgrade with several different types of high-quality leather.


The 2017 BMW X5 was packed with comfort and convenience features, and 2018 adds a standard rearview camera and compatibility with the BMW ConnectedDrive app. Every X5 model for 2017 and 2018 comes with heated, power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a panoramic moonroof. Tech features include an expansive 10.2-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth, USB, HD radio, and a nine-speaker stereo system.
