Frank of notd.blogs.com spotted five 2014 BMW X5 prototypes being road-tested in Chamblee, GA, just a couple of hours south of the Spartanburg plant in South Carolina. The test mules were wearing less camouflage than ever before, an indication that a public debut is not that far out.

Just like the new F30 3 Series, the F15 X5 will have headlights flow into the kidney grille, creating a 3D effect along with a sportier look. The front bumper will incorporate air vents as seen on some M models. The 2014 X5 will feature more flowing character lines and sculpted surfaces.

The 2014 X5 is based on the architecture of the 5 Series which provides significant contribution to weight reduction – more than 100 kilograms – despite the ever growing dimensions – along with a sportier driving experience. The lower weight also lays the groundwork for smaller engines to be used in the X5, like both petrol and diesel four-cylinder units.

It remains unknown if BMW will debut the new X5 at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show in January.
