2022 BMW X5 Black

There has been a lot of talk about the 2022 BMW X5 over the past 12 months and, finally, we get to see this luxury SUV with all its delicate features and phenomenal power. The BMW X5 follows the same tradition as other older BMW models offering speed, power, state-of-the-art technology, and impressive power. 

The 2022 BMW X5 will be available in two trims: the sDrive40i and xDrive40i.

The 2022 X5 has retained many of the features from past models, but also includes a few minor changes, such as the posh interior packages, flashy aesthetics (both inside and out), and a mild facelift. Plus, you have a choice of three trim levels and, if you are into performance, there is also an M sports trim as well. Each of these trims offers a superb driving experience and spotless performance.

Most of the interior is no different from the 2021 model, but there are subtle touch-ups and upgrades available to meet your needs. 

The BMW X5 will come with many standard features that include adaptive suspension dampers, panoramic sunroof, heated and power-adjustable front seats, leather simulated upholstery, 12.3-inch touch screen infotainment system, keyless entry, Apple CarPlay, enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio with a 12-month free subscription.

In addition, the X5 comes with several standard safety features, including forward collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision mitigation, and blind-spot monitoring. Plus, BMW is offering numerous upgrades and packages that include luxury seating, M Sports, driving assistance, and executive options. The exact pricing of these BMW X5 costs for upgrades has not been revealed but expect the total options to cost around $20,000 extra.


While the exact BMW X5 cost has not been released, the base price of the car is expected to start at around $60,000 for the sDrive40i trim, but if you prefer the M50 iTrim, expect to pay an additional $23,000. BMW also has plans to introduce a hydrogen cell-powered trim in the near future, and the price will be somewhere around $70,000. With all that, the 2022 X5’s competitor will be the Land Rover Discovery, the Audi Q7, and the Acura MDX.

If you are deciding on which X5 to buy, experts recommend the xDrive40i over the standard drive since the former comes with a Servotronic power steering assist and full-time all-wheel drive, which makes the car suitable for all terrains. The release dates for the BMW X5 have not been announced, but you should expect to see them at dealerships by the end of summer.  Call Braman BMW West Palm Beach at (561) 609-0130 today to learn more.
