Watch the recently introduced 2014 BMW X5 M50d take on the infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife!

The 2014 BMW X5 M50d is powered by a six-cylinder inline diesel with three-stage turbocharging and common rail direct injection. From a 3.0-liter displacement it develops output of 280 kW /381 hp and a peak torque of 740 Newton meters (546 lb-ft). BMW BluePerformance technology as standard means the M Performance Automobile is also EU6-compliant. The diesel unit’s power is transferred to the road by an eight-speed automatic transmission and BMW xDrive all-wheel drive.

The new BMW X5 M50d comes as standard with Adaptive M suspension including Dynamic Damper Control and air suspension at the rear axle, as well as Electric Power Steering. The optional Dynamic adaptive suspension package comprises Dynamic Performance Control and Dynamic Drive active roll stabilisation, while the exterior features standard 19-inch M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design fitted with mixed tires.

From 0 to 62 mph it takes only 5.3 seconds for the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) while fuel consumption is 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers (42.2 mpg) in the EU test cycle, with CO2 emissions of 177 g/km.

    “6.7 liters per 100 kilometers (42.2 mpg)…” Wow! That would be sweet if it were true but obviously it’s not correct because 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers is 35.1 mpg, not 42.2. Someone needs to recheck their arithmetic.

      It was reported in IMP MPG. That’s why. We should have specified

        Okay, that works out because 6.7 liters per 100km = 42.2 IMP mpg = 35.1 US mpg, which apparently is what it gets on the European standard. I wonder what the official EPA city/hwy estimates will look like?
        The reason I was shocked to see that 42.2 mpg number is because BMWNA is showing only 19 city/26 hwy for the 2014 X5 35d on their website. Of course, it’s hard to take anything on the BMWNA website seriously because it is full of errors. For example, they’re showing the 2014 550i as weighing more than the 2014 760Li and the 2014 535i weighing more than the 2014 750Li. Ridiculous! They also show the 2014 5-series cars as all speed-limited to 130mph. So who knows if any of their EPA estimates are correct or not?

          I just rechecked the BMWNA website to make sure they hadn’t corrected their errors since the last time I looked and no, they haven’t. For example, they’re saying that the 2014 550i weighs 5,401 lbs and it has a top speed of 130mph.
