The all-new 2007 BMW X5 comes equipped with either a 350hp, 4.8L V8 or 260hp, 3.0L inline-six and sports a double wishbone front suspension along with IV rear suspension. This model is approx. 7.4-inch longer than its predecessor for increased cabin space. Pricing has not yet been announced. More pictures after the jump.
The new rack-and-pinion steering with a variable transmission ratio geared to the steering angle allows the truck to meet a variety of driving conditions. The new X5 is also offered with the option of BMW’s speed-senstiive Active Steering — a technology available on many BMW sedans and coupes, but never before offered on an SUV. An updated xDrive system provides full-time all-wheel-drive with a 60/40 rear/front split
As an option, information which is highly relevant to the driver may also be presented on the available Head-Up Display. Data is projected at a very convenient ergonomic position on the windshield. The driver has road speed, navigation instructions, speed control data and warnings provided by BMW Check/Control in clear view at all times.
Supplementing the optional Park Distance Control, the new BMW X5 is available with a backup camera – a video system which facilitates parking maneuvers especially in confined areas or places with poor visibility
