We here at BMW of Columbia feel we could drone on for days about the many winning qualities of the 2017 X5 and still not even scratch the surface. That alone should give you a sense of how incredible this luxury SUV really is.

That said, we’d still like to give it a shot. Follow along with this post to discover that which the X5 has in store.

In base form, the X5 receives a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine as standard.

Syncing with an eight-speed automatic transmission, this six-banger boasts a burly 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is also standard; the xDrive all-wheel system, meanwhile, is optional.

And we can’t deny the entry-level engine from a fuel-economy perspective either; when had with rear-wheel drive, for instance, it’ll return a respectable 21 mpg combined (18 city/25 highway).

If you’d like to learn more about this capable crossover, or wish to get behind the wheel of one, we encourage you to drop by our Columbia, SC dealership. Our automotive aficionados are ready to answer your every question about the X5, or any other BMW model within the present portfolio.
