What you see are spy shots of the next generation BMW X5 spotted testing in the United States.
BMW is expected to replace the 2013 BMW X5 by an all-new model in 2018. Code named - G05, the new model will draw technology bits from the innovative Cluster Architecture (CLAR). This architecture is lighter, stiffer and much more flexible than the platform that’s currently being used. The CLAR will be used by all future BMW SUVs and passenger cars from the 3 Series and X3 onwards.
The new model features identical exterior measurements as the outgoing model. Even if you look at the design, the new BMW X5 picks up cues from the outgoing model. The changes are more than skin deep, and more of evolution than revolution. Pop the hood and be ready to avail of a range of engines that will be made available from the launch date. These will include four, six and eight cylinder engines that will produce up to 700bhp. Just like all the previous models, the new BMW X5 will also roll out of the production bay at the Spartanburg factory in North Carolina, United States.
