BMW X5 Towing and Performance Specs

All new BMW X5 SAV® models come equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission. However, you’ll have several engines and drivetrain options to consider. Your X5 towing capacity isn’t dependent on what you choose, but your ability to get up to speed and haul cargo in your cabin will vary:

  • 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque
  • Maximum Payload Capacity: 827 pounds with RWD, or 849 pounds with AWD

BMW X5 Tow Package

Once again, your BMW towing capacity will vary based on whether or not you opt for the BMW X5 tow package. Although $550 is a small price to pay for an impressive 7,200-pound tow rating, those who settle for the base 6,602-pound rating will be able to equip the available hands-free power tailgate.

BMW X5 Off-Road Adventuring

The available BMW X5 Off-Road Package costs $3,950, and lets you take your adventures to new heights! Here’s what’s included with the purchase:

  • Two-Axle Air Suspension: At low speeds, your vehicle will be able to raise or lower its suspension height by 1.6 inches!
  • Electronically-Controlled Rear Differential Lock: An M Sport Differential locks your axle while cornering in order to ensure superior control.
  • xOffroad Package: This feature group adds four off-road driving modes, a mechanically-operated differential lock, and rear underguard elements to prevent damage when you’re moving over rough terrain.
