Next generation BMW X5 is due out in 2013 and field testing has just begun. The first spy video just hit the interwerbs showing the F15 X5 being tested during winter weather conditions.

Wearing the typical psychedelic camouflage combined with plastic fake body parts, the prototypes are far from revealing their true design. We learned recently that the new 2013 BMW X5 is said to feature more flowing character lines and sculpted surfaces that will broaden the design of the X family.

At the front end, the new X5 will feature a more imposing kidney grille, larger and wider than in the current model. The headlights will get the LED treatment and the shape will follow the design seen on some of the recently unveiled models.

The taillights will be slightly redesigned as well. Using the layering concept seen on the Vision concepts, the T-shaped taillights add more depth to surfaces and are less wrapped around the body.

On the side, the character line is being enhanced, as we have seen on the new X3 as well. Expect to see more convex/concave shapes with 3D layering enhancing its masculine look.

The F15 platform is rumored to feature a modular design, a common trend in future BMWs, that allows the company to achieve significant savings across its lineup.

We anticipate a world premiere to take place in 2013 with sales beginning late in the year.

    BMW, make sure you put in 3rd row seats that people can fit in. If Honda/Acura can do it so can BMW.

    In all honesty I absolutely hate the new look of this website. I wish you kept the old website, it was much simpler and tidyer than this new “dynamic” look.

      It’s an evolution and honestly, look at the way you read the articles..nothing has changed there. Absolutely nothing. I would say the entire site maybe changed about 30%.

      But I appreciate the feedback and we will try to improve it.

      Just please understand that sometimes we need to evolve and in our case, it means being able to show all the great content we have.

            The remodeling of the site is bad, sorry to say, just seems like u got too much going on, just look at Espn.com, simple and to the point.

            Fair enough. But espn follows the same concept though. More content in front of your eyes. The crazy part is that this is a mild redesign. Not much has changed.

            I like the new look, easy to see more content, and a cleaner look to the whole layout.

    D-le Boeriu, sunt doar curios, viitoarea generatie X5 va beneficia de acel sistem care activeaza franele si in cazul pietonilor? Exista si ceva clip cu dezvoltarea acestui sistem si de aceea va intreb. Multumesc!
