CarBuyer reviews the 2014 BMW X5 M50d. The tri-turbo diesel X5 went on sale this fall but it is not offered in the United States.

The 2014 BMW X5 M50d is powered by a six-cylinder in-line diesel engine boasts comes 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 metres (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.

Design wise, the X5 M50d comes with modified front and rear aprons as well as larger wheels, giving the car an imposing look. 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.

Average fuel consumption for the new BMW X5 M50d is 6.7 litres per 100 kilometres (42.2 mpg) in the EU test cycle, with CO2 emissions of 177 g/km.

    This is what I posted on their YouTube channel:

    “I just watched a report from a journalist that doesn’t like the product… I thought you guys were supposed to, at least, act subjective. So, now I still now nothing real about the new X5.”

      @Giom…I recently attended a dealer viewing of the new x5..it is the same size with same wheel base. Rear lights are like x1 but bigger and the led lightning for rear lamps is very sharp and goves a cool look. Interior too has been slightly improved with an updated idrive system which now incudes a scroll pad on top of idrive. The interior now has LED light strip runing the entire length of the interior merging with the doors with 3 selectable colors..orange..white and blue. The int LED look really nice. The driver assist package now has all driver aids like lane change..lane departure etc and can be activated with just 1button instead of individual buttons..the x5 also comes with 2 exterior packages which just upgrade the fenders and side sills.nothing new in this new x5..just enhancements.hope you get some idea
