THE M PERFORMANCE DESIGN OF THE BMW X5 M50d.
In addition to the exclusive M Performance features, the BMW X5 M50d also lines up with selected components of the M Sport package. Specific air inlets in the broad front apron give the Sports Activity Vehicle a more imposing appearance. The innovative signature of M GmbH is also readily apparent in the perfect interplay between all components of this M Performance Automobile with its optical and technical design uncompromisingly geared towards dynamics.
EXCLUSIVE FEATURES OF THE BMW X5 M50d.
The BMW X5 M50d can be certain of a unique appearance. Mirror caps in Ferric Grey and the M logo in Dark Chrome together with exclusive features from the aerodynamics package also in Ferric Grey all make the vehicle unmistakeable. The trapezoid exhaust pipe finishers are designed in Black Chrome. Its model designation in Dark Chrome emphasises the close relationship with M GmbH, which also distinguishes the interior. Drivers and passengers are welcomed by the door sill finishers with model lettering and each gear shift draws attention to the M logo adorning the gear selection lever of the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission.
M PERFORMANCE TWIN POWER TURBO INLINE 6-CYLINDER DIESEL ENGINE.
The engine combines common rail direct injection and unique three-stage turbocharging with variable turbine geometry. An extremely spontaneous response, high torque even at low revs and a wide rotational speed range characterise this unique power unit.
These engine characteristics make for spontaneous dynamics – with a stirring 740 Nm of torque, a peak output of 280 kW (381 hp) and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.3 seconds. This impressive performance combines with average fuel consumption of 6.6 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 173 g/km to produce an outstanding dynamics-to-efficiency ratio, thus once again underlining the innovative power of BMW.
THE M PERFORMANCE DRIVING DYNAMICS OF THE BMW X5 M50d.
The driving dynamics concept of the BMW X5 M50d is designed with performance in mind. Increased driving pleasure combined with unique comfort and inspiring versatility is the objective. The high level of agility and precision in the handling and the balanced tuning of all components can be felt whenever the vehicle comes out of a bend. With their extensive modifications, the engineers of BMW M GmbH have optimised the suspension and steering characteristics of this exclusive Sports Activity Vehicle down to the finest detail.
More sport: the Adaptive M suspension
The Adaptive M suspension ensures that the typical agility of the BMW X5 achieves an even more sports-oriented quality in the BMW X5 M50d. Features in the equipment package include Dynamic Damping Control and air suspension for the rear axle, with a setup tuned for a particularly sporty driving response. One of the benefits for you is precise control of the handling characteristics.
More agility: the Suspension Package Dynamic
Equipped with the Adaptive Suspension Package Dynamic, the BMW X5 M50d achieves a maximum level of agility, precision and lateral dynamics. Model-specific Dynamic Performance Control and Dynamic Drive guarantee even more neutral steering and reduce body side tilt on bends.
More traction: BMW xDrive
The BMW X5 M50d has the intelligent all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive with Performance Control as standard, thus achieving a unique level of dynamics, agility and traction. Whatever the road surface, the Sports Activity Vehicle follows every change in direction precisely with noticeably fewer steering corrections. To achieve the driving dynamics typical of M Performance vehicles, the system has also been designed with the emphasis on the rear wheels.
8-SPEED STEPTRONIC SPORT TRANSMISSION.
Transferring the power in the BMW X5 M50d is an 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission supplied as a standard feature. The specific M Performance tuning of the shift programmes is specially adapted to the particular performance potential of the engine. Shift paddles on the steering wheel allow gear changing in sporty style. The transmission also features a Launch Control, ensuring optimum acceleration under all conditions. The compact build, low weight and the perfect interplay with the Auto Start Stop Function are also instrumental in significantly lowering fuel consumption and reducing exhaust emissions.
THE M PERFORMANCE FAMILY.
Intensified driving pleasure.
Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected. Consumtion data is determined in accordance to the ECE driving cycle.
The driving range depends on a variety of factors, especially: personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning.
Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany.
