BMW X5 – At A Glance:

The ramification of a modernized crossover is a sports utility, which still resonates through the luxury segment to meet the demands for opulent high-end family haulers. BMW X5 is certainly a top utility vehicle choice often preferred over swanky coupes and sedans for many obvious reasons. BMW’s X5 defines fresh designs, oozes modernity and delivers power-packed performance-robust, loud and clear. Let’s see what’s new for 2019 with a detailed breakdown of all the features.


While the 2019 X5 may resemble its predecessors, the year’s model is a bigger, taller and longer than its 2018 prototype.

New upgrades include:

  • The X5 SAV or the sports activity vehicle –how the marque calls it–receives two brand-new engine options, new technology and a bigger grille than 2018 X5.
  • Aesthetic-wise, the 2019 X5 embodies elegance with an updated exterior design featuring new frame-lines along the bodysides and boasts an entirely restyled fascia, revamped air inlets adding a nice touch, and fresh LED taillights giving the new SUV a fresher look than last year’s X5.

The 2019 X5’s styling seamlessly complements the vehicle’s beautifully designed framework. Updates for 2019 include:


  • Just like the last year’s model, the new X5 carries a modern design template and completes the look with trademark BMW grilles.
  • The new X5 also rides on a revamped wheelbase with the options of 22-inch alloy wheels. Other additional features include complementing chrome accents that breaks up the SUV’s slab-sided design smartly quite opposed to the luxury line’s previous generations.


  • BMW’s unique Anti-lock Braking System, 3-point safety belts and head restraints, Acoustic warning features, and Active Protection System with roll-over sensors are some of the best updates for 2019 X5.
  • For better driving assistance, the new X5 is equipped with adaptive control and Active Driving Assistance technology featuring pedestrian protection, collision warning, lane departure and blind spot detection, and rear cross traffic alert.


  • Under the hood, the new X5 is powerful with its twin-turbo engine that quickly achieves its peak with 335 horsepower 330 lb-ft of torque. The new engine replaces previous year’s low horsepower and torque numbers and claims to reach 60 mph in less than 5.3 seconds.
  • In combination with an 8-speed automatic transmission and the all-wheel-drive feature, the dual turbo engine delivers dynamic performance. This year’s X-Drive is all new and features an efficient control system too.
  • X5 also boasts the brand’s trademark Damper Control System and proudly offers two performance settings—Comfort and Sports.


On the inside, BMW has reworked in most areas to give the new X5 a refreshing interior too. Some unique updates include:

  • The improved center console, featuring the 12.3-inch control display integrated with an upgraded iDrive system, offers quick and easy digitized navigation, entertainment, and music features.
  • The debutant BMW Live Cockpit Professional Display adds more variants and controls to the iDrive System with options of customizable settings available on a tablet-like touchscreen for an easy access.
  • While the standard leather seating and auto-climate control are all included features, the new X5 offers a plenty of optional upgrades ranging from massaging seats to temperature-controlled cup-holders at an additional cost.

Fatih was extremely helpful and calm through the whole sales experience, not pushy like other salesmen I’ve dealt with. He gave a fair trade in value for my used car as well. Would definitely work with him again 🙂

5 Stars across 3 areas of my experience.1. The sales experience. I showed up about an hour before close and was on the lot looking for a specific car. Jason introduced himself and immediately started telling me the history of the used X3 I was interested in. He knew this vehicle's history without thinking. He retrieved it and then introduced me to Mason who assisted me on the test drive. This was Mason's second day at BMW Tulsa - but I quickly realized this wasn't a some young sales guy. He was (as everyone I would meet) was an enthusiast. I had done my homework on the X3 but was a first time BMW buyer. Mason knew the car, the features and the specs. Impressive for day 2. I had my financing ahead of time but that didn't prevent a very professional introduction and handling by Allan, the finance mgr. All 3 guys stayed nearly an hour after close to ensure I was 100% happy with my decision and to make sure I didn't have any questions. Again - these are not sales and finance guys - these are car guys and proud to be associated with BMW and it showed.2. Delivery. Rather than have to take an UBER the next morning or arrange a ride - the next morning Mason delivered my X3 to my driveway. He covered some additional features and shortcuts on the infotainment system and coordinated the schedule to replace a rear seat nylon bushing that was causing a small rattle in the rear center seat. (I felt bad because that was the only thing I could hear or come up with as the X3 was solid and honestly still feels brand new)3. Service - Wow - what an experience. This was a white glove experience from the moment I pulled up to the service door. Cody and Andrew ensured the work order was accurate, the handling of my vehicle was as if it was going out on the showroom floor not to a service bay. Communication and updates were timely as they needed to order the part, but they provided me an 530i loaner while the part was shipped in. I got a call when my car was ready and the exchange and service team again - don't present themselves as service technicians. This whole team is comprised of enthusiasts and perfectionists. No grease monkeys - they are all wearing BMW polo shirts and I guess you have to have perfect hair to work there as they all could just as easily be out on the showroom floor selling cars. Finally - from the sales floor to the service bay to the parts center. The whole facility is clean (the service bay looks like a manufacturing line not a service garage. I have continued telling myself - "I should have been driving a BMW the past 20 years". BMW Tulsa is a great example of what happens when you marry up a superior automobile with a superior dealer. I absolutely love my used X3 - but I am already thinking about what my next BMW will be in 2 years. But one thing I know for sure...and that is where I will be buying it. Thanks BMW Tulsa (Mason, Jason, Allen, Cody and Andrew).
