Arrow US Pricing for 2014 X5 Announced

BMW today Announced the Pricing for 2014 F15 X5
2014 X5 sDrive35i will start at $53,725
2014 BMW X5 xDrive35i is priced at $56,025.
2014 BMW X5 xDrive35d price is $57,525
2014 BMW X5 xDrive50i will start at $69,125.

All prices include $925 destination and handling. Newly-standard equipment for the X5 includes, but is not limited to, BMWs Auto Start-Stop system, BMWs iDrive4.2 Navigation System with Touchpad, 10 years of BMW Assist eCall service, 10 years of BMW TeleService, BMW Apps, 40-20-40 split-folding rear seat, and now standard Servotronic speed-sensitive power steering.

The all-new BMW X5 will offer a new model and a first for the original Sports Activity Vehicle, the X5 sDrive35i, which marks the first time that an X5 model has been offered with rear-wheel drive. It, along with the X5 xDrive35i, will be powered by BMWs multi-award winning 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-six. The V8-powered X5 xDrive50i will use BMWs latest 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8. It offers improvements in horsepower and torque, while at the same time improving efficiency. These models will arrive in US showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2013. Based on its popularity over the last several years, a new BMW Advanced Diesel model will join the line-up a few months later. The 2nd-generation X5 xDrive35d features a new 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder diesel engine. It will provide the abundant torque for which BMW Advanced diesels have become renowned while offering significant improvements in efficiency over its predecessor. All models will be equipped with BMWs latest 8-speed automatic transmission. As was true of its predecessors, the all-new BMW X5 will be produced exclusively at BMWs production facility in Spartanburg, SC.

Among the attributes that have set the BMW X5 apart in the automotive landscape has been its unique blend of sporty, elegant exterior design and luxurious, flexible interior ambiance. Those attributes have been enhanced with an entirely new design, inside and out. For customers looking to add an additional element of individuality to their new X5, the Luxury Line, xLine or M Sport will be available, as will two Interior Design Packages Ivory White and Mocha.

Class-leading driving dynamics have been a hallmark for the BMW Sports Activity Vehicle from the very beginning and the new X5 is no different. BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive can be complemented by Dynamic Performance Control as part of the optional Dynamic Handling Package. The Dynamic Handling Package also includes Active Roll Stabilization providing an additional edge to the X5s sporty handling attributes as well as Dynamic Damper Control and a rear-axle air suspension. Adaptive M suspension, available as part of M Sport, also includes Dynamic Damper Control and rear air suspension with more sports-oriented suspension tuning.

Thanks for the info. Doing a quick build on bmwusa.com makes it look like the F15 will be around $2000 less than a comparably equipped E70, given that nav, apps, etc. are now standard, as they should be.

My only concern is how good/bad Servotronic will be in the F15. I like the feel in the E70, although some think it's a bit heavy at slow speeds. BMW's of late have been panned for their electrically assisted steering, but there are rumblings that this is being addressed on recent models. The Auto Start-Stop will also be interesting, as some people (including many magazine testers) seem to really dislike it.

Ditto.

They gave me a new 1 Series (Less than 1000 kms on the clock) as a courtesy vehicle last time I got my E70 service. It had the start/stop feature. Did not like it at all.

The first time it did it, I thought the car stalled. Soon figured it out. But with A/C on, it only stops for 30 seconds, then it starts up again as the A/C unit needs more power. But the annoying part is, it does this at each traffic light I stop at. I hope these cars have one heavy duty starter motors.

For the US market, the standard BMW Navigation system, with touchpad, includes a freestanding 10.2-inch Control Display Monitor. The displays for the climate control and ventilation systems feature black panel technology.
The Dakota leather seat surfaces are standard on the X5 xDrive50i and can be specified as an option on six-cylinder models. Exclusive Nappa leather with extended features can be specified as part of the Interior Design Packages. Customers can choose from up to eight upholstery colors.

The new BMW X5 can be seen in the standard black roof rails while the exterior paintwork can be ordered in a choice of 11 colors, among them the new Sparkling Brown Metallic as well as Mineral White Metallic.

Personalization: Luxury Line and xLine for the exterior.
Two new Lines for the exterior and interior of the new BMW X5 can be ordered as an alternative to the standard specification, enabling a new level of personalization. Each Line represents a harmonious blend of design, colors and materials. M Sport is also an alternative for those that wish to accentuate the sporting character of the new X5. The Lines also encompass the new-look remote control key with redesigned operating buttons.

xLine: presence and robustness
With stylistic underbody protection elements in brushed stainless steel, newly designed air intake bars in matt silver and a rear trim strip which, like the kidney grille bars, comes in matt silver, the xLine adds distinctive touches to the exterior and emphasizes the SAV character of the new BMW X5. This xLine also includes exterior mirror bases and B-pillar and C-pillar trim in high-gloss black, as well as Satin aluminum line exterior trim for the side windows. Roof rails are available in a choice of Satin Aluminum or high-gloss finish. Also included are a sport steering wheel, aluminum running boards and 19-inch Orbit Grey wheels 20-inch Y-spoke wheels with mixed-sized performance tires are available as an upgrade.

The interior includes an 8-speed sport automatic transmission with shift-paddles, M-sport steering wheel, anthracite headliner, M foot rest and door sills, Aluminum Hexagonal trim and sport seats. Multi-contour seats can be specified as an alternative. An M Adaptive Suspension may also be specified as an upgrade.
Two Interior Design Packages offer additional opportunities for personalization

In addition to the Lines, two Interior Design Packages Ivory White and Mocha offer additional possibilities for personalizing the new BMW X5.


The Ivory White Interior Design Package features Ivory White Nappa Leather upholstery. The dashboard is covered in Atlas Grey leather with contrast stitching for both the seats and dashboard. It includes Fineline Oak Wood trim, although other trims may be specified as an alternative.

The Mocha Interior Design Package features Mocha Nappa Leather upholstery. The dashboard in this case is cover in Black Nappa leather with contrast stitching for both the seats and dashboard. The featured trim is Fineline Pure Wood Trim, although other trims may be specified as an alternative.

Multi-contour seats, which are standard on the X5 xDrive50i
, and sports seats are available as an option on six-cylinder models.

Comfort seats are now available for rear passengers as is seat heating. The rear comfort seats come with bespoke upholstery, backrest adjustment through 10 degrees and 3.1 inches (80 mm) of fore/aft adjustment. The rear comfort seats can be specified either as an individual option or together with the optional third row of seats. The two additional seats are easy to access thanks to an Easy Entry function and a grip plate by the C-pillar. They can be lowered separately into the load compartment floor and come with inertia-reel seat belts.

The folding backrest of the second-row seat can now be split 40 : 20 : 40, which allows load capacity to be increased in stages from 23 cu.ft. 66 cu.ft. (650 1,870 litres), based on EU measurements. That represents up to seven percent more volume than its predecessor. Additional storage compartments and door pockets which can accommodate 1.5-liter bottles up front and one-liter bottles in the rear contribute to the X5s functionality both in day-to-day use and on longer journeys.

The new BMW X5 again comes with a split two-section tailgate. The lower element can be folded down horizontally to form a single level with the load surface. Power tailgate operation for the upper section is a standard feature. And now, for the first time, the tailgate can be closed as well as opened using the remote control and, at the touch of a button, from the drivers seat.

The suspension packages available for the new BMW X5 cater to individual requirements in terms of comfortable or sporty driving styles. With the Dynamic Damper Control + automatic rear self-leveling suspension option, electronic control logic adapts the damping characteristics to changing road conditions and driving situations. Two different damping modes can be selected using the Driving Dynamics Control switch. The same functionality is also provided by the Adaptive M suspension, available as part of M Sport. In this version, SPORT or SPORT+ modes offer extra-firm suspension and damping characteristics.

Finally, the Dynamic Handling Package maximizes both comfort and dynamics. This option combines the components of Dynamic Damper Control, automatic rear self-leveling suspension, Dynamic Performance Control, and Active Roll Stabilization.

The new BMW X5 features standard Electric Power Steering. Active Steering is available as an option. In addition to varying the power assist, Active Steering also adjusts the steering input required to turn the wheels in relation to vehicle speed. This reduces the steering effort required when parking and provides precise response and feedback at high speed. The electromechanical parking brake with Auto Hold function is once again standard on the new BMW X5. The powerful braking system offers stable and consistent braking performance even under heavy braking, assisted by Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). Among other functions, the DSC system includes the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) and the Automatic Differential Brake (ADB-X). Other functions include Brake Assist, the Brake Standby feature, Start-Off Assistant, Fade Compensation, the Brake Drying function, trailer stability control and Hill Descent Control (HDC).

The BMW ConnectedDrive range for the new BMW X5.
A large range of BMW ConnectedDrive driver assistance systems and mobility services are available for the new BMW X5. They improve active safety, convenience and the infotainment experience and offer best-in-class standards of intelligent interaction between the driver, vehicle and external environment.

Safety: Active Driving Assistant and Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go.
The new Active Driving Assistant safety package includes Lane Departure Warning, which alerts drivers to an imminent unintended lane departure, and a pedestrian and collision warning system with braking function, which detects vehicles in front and, at speeds up to 37 mph (60 km/h), also detects pedestrians who are on a potential collision course with the vehicle. If a hazard is detected, visual and audible warnings are given and the brake system is primed in order to reduce stopping distance. At speeds up to 37 mph (60 km/h), moderate hazard braking is applied to reduce vehicle speed and alert the driver to a critical situation.

The ACC Stop & Go enhances comfort and safety in slow-moving and stop-and-go traffic. This system maintains a safe following distance at any speed up to 130 mph (210 km/h). A combination of a front camera and full-range radar sensors registers preceding traffic or stationary vehicles. If the driver fails to react to a warning of an imminent frontal collision, ACC Stop & Go + Active Driving Assistant automatically brakes the vehicle all the way to a standstill if necessary. A new function, the Traffic Jam Assistant, is due to be incorporated in this package from December 2013 production onward. At speeds up to 25 mph (40 km/h), this function not only controls following distance but also keeps the vehicle on track. The Traffic Jam Assistant keeps the vehicle in the center of its lane by providing active steering input.

BMW Assist eCall, which is standard including a 10 year subscription, includes enhanced Automatic Collision Notification, with automatic vehicle location and BMWs groundbreaking Urgency Algorithm. The current generation of this system relays important information to the BMW Call Center in the event of a crash, such as vehicle position (accurate within feet), chassis number, vehicle model, vehicle color and data from the onboard sensors. The system also detects how many people are traveling in the vehicle, which airbags were activated and the intensity of the impact. Jointly developed with the William Lehman Injury Research Center in Miami, BMWs Urgency Algorithm synthesizes all the available crash data in order to provide first responders with a prediction of the likelihood of severe injury. Arming first responders with this information has the potential to save precious minutes in a critical situation.

BMW ConnectedDrive technologies also enhance safety at night. Adaptive Xenon Headlights with turning lights are standard. Adaptive LED Headlights and the Automatic High Beams, which automatically dim the high beams in the face of oncoming traffic, are available. Night driving can be made even safer with the available by BMW Night Vision. This system now detects warns the driver not only about pedestrians but animals as well. The system relays a real-time video image to the control display which shows people, sizeable animals and other heat-radiating objects even if they are outside the headlight beam, and provides a warning if there is a collision risk.

had an X3 loaner with it and had to turn it off every time I started the car it was so annoying. Now they've added the feature that remembers the last setting so you don't have to turn it off each time. The biggest annoyance with it was everytime it stops or starts it vibrates the car. If it were undetectable, I would live with it, but it certainly wasn't. I also don't want the starter cycling at every light since I do all local.

I read that as 10 years of telephone assistance service, not ten years of vehicle service.
