Along with the brand-new third-generation X5, BMW additionally supplied the very first information on the new X5 M50d – a system initially added to the lineup back in 2012.
As not a surprise, this diesel X5 will be supplied with the very same upgrades as the typical variation, including a new front and back fascia, a brand-new collection of headlights and an upgraded interior.
The new X5 M50d is powered by a tri-turbocharged 3.0-liter in-line-six diesel motor delivering a total of 376 horse power between 4,000 and 4,400 rpm and 546 pound-feet of torque from 2,000 to 3,000 revoltions per minute. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic and delivers its power to all 4 tires. The X5 M50d will dash to 60 miles per hour in just 5.3 seconds and approximately a full throttle of 155 mph. BMW is reporting an incorporated fuel intake of 35.1 mpg U.S.
The bad news is that the brand-new BMW X5 M50d will not be offered on the U.S. market, for this reason it being a 2013 system year as opposed to a 2014.
