The forthcoming 2023 BMW X5 spy photos surfaced online, and the new SUV appears updated. In general, X5 SUV is still in testing, and the final product may differ from the prototype. However, spy pictures show X5 with a mid-cycle upgrade. Officials said the cosmetic changes would be minor, but the interior will be more contemporary.
BMW is a great brand that makes outstanding vehicles. So, expect some changes, including a more sophisticated infotainment system with a bigger screen and plenty of standard equipment. This model will go on sale at some point next year and here’s everything we know so far.
2023 BMW X5 Spy Shots
BMW is testing the new 2023 BMW X5 and the first spy photos are already available. The automaker’s various engineering facilities in Germany are also seen in some unique spy pictures. The spied model appears updated yet not so significantly.
The exterior changes look minor based on the early photographs. We noted the new headlamp graphics and redesigned front and back fascia. The prototype’s modest camouflage hides mid-cycle upgrades including redesigned bumpers and lighting components. The grille is tightly covered, although modifications are expected. In addition to the sporty all-wheel-drive system, the M Sport should include improved brakes and suspension components. It also has 21-inch wheels.
From what we know, the cabin will undergo major modifications. The upcoming 2023 BMW X5 will sport a lot of cabin refreshments, including a freestanding digital instrument cluster. The same infotainment system as in the iX model is also featured. The digital instrument cluster should be 12.3 inches and the infotainment system should be 14.9 inches.
The manufacturer also includes Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, GPS, and a 10-speaker/205-watt audio system as standard. Many basic features and driving aids are also expected. The front-collision warning, automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and lane departure warning are now standard. Still, we are waiting for the German automaker to reveal more interior details.
2023 BMW X5 Specs
It’s unclear what the 2023 BMW X5 powertrains will be like. But efficiency and performance will certainly increase. The current X5 comes with either a 3.0-liter turbo inline-six or a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.
Moreover, the six-cylinder unit is also available as a plug-in hybrid. The X5 M has the most powerful engine. This model’s regular output is 600 horsepower, while the X5 M Competition version has 617 hp. This generation won’t have a battery-electric powertrain.
2023 BMW X5 Price and Release Date
The all-new 2023 BMW X5 will now cost around $60,000, which is a minor jump in price. This luxury SUV will hit the dealerships later next year and it will rival models such as Volvo XC90, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and Acura MDX. On the other hand, the high-performance X5 M variant will cost slightly above $100,000.
