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.
