The car enthusiasts eagerly await the introduction of the 2018 BMW X5 M next year. The BMW SUV’s have remarkably come a long way. In the year 2000, the BMW introduced their first SUV and the range has grown tremendously since then.
As it has come to be expected, the BMW continuously upgrades their models regularly. Come next year, it is expected that the company will release their newest generation of the X5 version, the 2018 BMW X5 M. It will be a luxury, mid-sized SUV that will come with a host of upgraded features.
2018 BMW X5 M – SCAR Design
This vehicle will be the first SUV in which BMW will incorporate the SCAR design in its architecture. An alloy of Aluminum, Steel, and Magnesium will produce an aerodynamic structure that is lightweight and very strong.
The 2018 BMW X5 M SUV will, therefore, be performance enhanced. Although it is just speculative, the front hood of the car is likely to be toned down from the current X5 model. The LED lights might be a standard in this car, in addition to an enlarged kidney grille.
The doors and the fenders design from the current X5 will most likely still make it to the 2018 BMW X5 M model. If the rear of the new model is anything to go by, it might be a little bland, to say the least.
Inside the vehicle, there is going to be an advancement in technological features. The SUV boasts of a multi functional steering wheel for precise steering and better handling. Minor changes on the dashboard with a little emphasis on the appearance of the information and entertainment screen are expected.
There might even be a gesture control, a touch screen, and remote parking functionality on the 2018 BMW X5 M SUV for the US market. The instrument part might also see a changeover to the digital display screen and therefore no need for needle gauges.
The car can comfortably accommodate five people, although the third-row seats could better be utilized for cargo space. Soft leather on the seats and a generally appealing interior with high-quality materials are also among the expected features.
While the current X5 M has a 4.4-liter V8 turbocharged engine producing 567 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, the 2018 BMW X5 M SUV is widely expected to pack a punch at 600 horsepower.
Acceleration-wise, it will mark a slight improvement on the 0-60 mph in 4 seconds that the current model offers. The car is a four wheel drive with an eight-speed automatic transmission system.
Manufacturer Price and Release Date
Although the 2018 BMW X5 M price is yet to be revealed. The current manufacturer recommended the price for the 2017 BMW X5 is $99,795.
The BMW X5 M is expected to be released in 2018. The high performance combined with the spacious interior and the stylish design of this vehicle might as well help win over BMW pessimists.
