If you haven’t been paying close attention to the news lately, then you would not have known that a video of the 2014 BMW X5, along with some images of the M Sport and M50D as well had been released, which we have to say makes for some amazing eye candy. Okay, so it’s not an all-new design, but rather an evolution, although we’re sure most critics will be happy with the new changes.
For those who feel the new 2014 BMW X5 model is not for them, at least you still have the choice of those other two variants, the M Sport and M50d. having said that, you will need to dig into your pockets just a little deeper for the difference in price.
Details of the new BMW X5 were released at the end of last month, and we learned that there would be several differences between the models for Europe and North America. In the former there are to be three model choices, the xDrive30d, xDrive50i and the M50d M Performance.
This range will then be extended in December 2013 to include the xDrive40d diesel, X5 xDrive25d diesel, xDrive35i with its turbocharged petrol engine and also the X5 sDrive25d, which is the first RWD of this model.
As for the North American market, you will get the RWD sDrive35i, as well as an AWD version. There will also be the xDrive50i, and those M Sports versions a little later down the line.
Speaking of those models, it’s clear to see in these images that they look far better than the standard model, seen in the video below. But it’s not all about those extra design flares, as the improvements made to the handling and performance, but are these sportier models enough to convince you that the 2014 BMW X5 is worth you spending your hard earned money on?
