The BMW x5 is the original sporty SUV that puts a premium on driving pleasure and enjoyment over any kind of off-road capability. This vehicle is manufactured in the U.S. in South Carolina. There are 3 engine choices ranging from a 3.0 litre inline six to a hot rod 355hp 4.8 litre V8. The powertrain utilizes the xdrive all-wheel drive system. The x5 has fairly compact interior dimensions and is expensive with prices starting around 40k and topping out at over 70k for the V8 model. The price has not deterred many buyers as this is one of the best selling BMW models.
