Coming off a full redesign last year, the current BMW X5 is a versatile and high-class luxury SUV. It has lots of high-tech safety features, its interior is bigger and better equipped than ever before, and performance from both base models is strong. The BMW X5 is perfect for leasing wherever you live.
The 2020 BMW X5 M50i is a stronger version of BMW’s midsize luxury SUV. Thanks to a more powerful engine, significant suspension updates and some differences in styling, the X5 M50i clearly stands apart from the mainstream X5 models. Whether it’s fun rides, long drives or just about everyday lives the BMW X5 lease is ready to be part of your life.
How Powerful Is Its Engine?
The standard X5 comes with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 335 horsepower and 330 of torque. If you try the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 in the X5 xDrive50i you will feel that power.
The M50i is even more powerful, delivering 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. This extra boost in power drops the 0-60 mph time to just 4.1 seconds — impressive for a vehicle of any size. Like the other X5s, the M50i comes with a nifty eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
To facilitate the power there has been plenty of upgrades under the hood with reinforced crankshafts and powerful pistons. With standard Dynamic Damper Control and multiple suspension types, from Adaptive M Suspension to 2-axle air suspension, your BMW X5 is ready for the toughest challenge and this will make the ride smooth.
Careful Precision Engineering
The M50i comes with an electronically controlled M Sport differential that transfers power between wheels to maximize traction.
