Pricing for the 2017 BMW X5 has been announced today and things are looking a bit more expensive. That’s at least when you first look at the numbers but when you take into account the added kit that BMW is offering as standard starting this summer, the 2017 model does start to look like a rather good investment, at least in some cases.
The cheapest BMW X5 you’ll be able to buy starting next month will still be the sDrive35i model. The rear-wheel drive SUV will start at $56,495 which is $800 more than before. The all-wheel drive version will be priced starting at $58,795 which is also $800 more than what customers are paying right now. On the diesel front, the only model you can get, the xDrive35d will be $1,600 more, kicking off at $60,295.
The pricing for the xDrive40e model will remain unchanged at $63,095, clearly showing BMW’s intention to make the plug-in hybrid a more popular choice for SUV enthusiasts. As for the xDrive50i, the top of the range beast with 450 HP, the pricing will also go up by $800. However, all models will get more standard features.
These include the new iDrive 5.0 infotainment system that is also coming with touch screen functionality for the iDrive display, stainless steel underbody cladding front/rear, silver matte kidney grille, rocker panels and front air intakes, roof rails in Satin Aluminum as well as window trim made of the same material, new standard wheel design (19-inch Star Spoke style 449 replaces 19-inch V-Spoke style 450) and Anthracite headliner. All of these features come as standard on the xLine package.
However, the Luxury package is now available as well without having to pay anything extra, while the M Sport Package will offer you the choice of fitting your X5 with 20-inch Double Spoke Wheels style 469M in Black. Getting the Executive Package on the xDrive50i will now include the wireless charging and Wi-Fi hotspot features as well while the new Ivory White Interior Design Package will include “Ivory White and Black Nappa Leather” with Black Nappa leather dashboard and Black carpeting, replacing “Ivory White Nappa Leather” with Atlas Gray leather dashboard and Oyster carpeting.
