TheFastLaneCar tested the 2013 BMW X5 xDrive35i, one of BMW’s most popular car and our choice in the X5 family. The car tested is not just the “regular” X5 35i but rather one equipped with M Sport and Performance Package.
The most significant update for the 2013 BMW X5 is the M Performance Package, available on X5 xDrive35i and xDrive50i (with M Sport Package) models. The sporty package adds 15 horsepower and 30 pound-feet of torque to the 35i model, and 40 hp and 30 lb-ft of torque to the X5 50i.
Therefore the 3.0-liter turbocharged in-line six-cylinder engine of the xDrive35 now produces 315 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque.
In this TFLcar video review we see just how much the M packages increases horsepower by testing the X5 from 0-60 MPH at 1 mile above sea level.
