BMW X5 leaked images might be the first "unofficial" photo

New BMW X5 - Exclusive First Look BMW reveals bigger, bolder fourth-gen X5

BMW has not announced what prices will accompany the different versions of the new 2019 BMW X5 SUV as they make their way into dealerships, but promised to do so in the days and weeks before the model goes to market.

Key among the chassis developments brought to the new SUV is an optional air suspension featuring air springs both front and rear, as on the latest 7-series.

For those wanting to venture off the tar, the X5 will be available with an Off-Road package for the first time, featuring the aforementioned air suspension with 80mm worth of ride height variance, front and rear underguards and multiple driving modes that optimise the vehicle's systems for sand, rock, gravel or snow driving.

A stiffer body shell with added aluminium is also said to offer a near to 33 per cent increase in torsional stiffness in a move that helps better isolate road shock and secondary vibration.

BMW is also debuting a new options package.

It's an evolutionary tale inside too, with the new X5 adopting an array of climate controls and other buttons just under the 12.3 inch center screen, together with a number of buttons and new switchgear on the lower center console.

The wheel base, too, has been extended by 42mm.

BMW's SUV sales, like most carmakers, have grown rapidly over the past decade, and the German brand hopes to build on that success when the fourth generation X5 arrives late next year.

Apple faces class action lawsuit over Apple Watch screen ‘defect’
A new class action lawsuit claims that all models of the Apple Watch, from Series 0 to Series 3, share the same defect ... But then, in April this year, it expanded that additional coverage to include second-generation watches as well.

The LED headlamps are new and come with BMW's laser light tech with adaptive LED signature in the blue X-motif. The side window graphic, meanwhile, continues with the same basic shape as that established by the first-generation X5 launched back in 1999. To provide more room inside, the 2019 X5's wheelbase has been stretched by 1.65-inches. Helping to boost visual presence, buyers will be able to select between alloy wheels ranging from 19 inches to a new 22-inch V-spoke alloy.

Distinctive interior and exterior design features mark out the xLine and M Sport model variants of the new X5.

The 2019s available at launch will have five seats; an optional third row with power controls will be available later.

Under the hood lies a choice of one V8 and three six-cylinder inline engines.

The diesels are underpinned by a turbocharged 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder touting xDrive30d, which offers 195kW and 620Nm.

BMW has achieved these numbers by turbocharging the 3-litre diesel six with a total of four turbochargers, making this the only engine now in series production to share its turbo count with a Bugatti Chiron. With first the X5 xDrive40i, customers will get a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with 335 hp and 330 lb-ft, providing a 5.3-second run to 60 miles per hour.

All engines are paired with an eight-speed Steptronic autobox as standard and BMW's xDrive permanent all-wheel-drive with a rearward-biased torque distribution.
