New 2018 BMW X5 Redesign and Release Date

Sunday, March 12th 2017. | BMW


The current X5 was released in the middle of 2013 and we expect that the company will continue it on the market for few more years. It seems that the new 2018 BMW X5 will be all-new car which is something quite surprising that BMW can do. It is because the current chassis is about a decade old and it should go with a massive change.

It will use all new CLAR modular platform which is also used by their 7th series. It means that the car has rear wheel drive. It is a great way to start because it will cut more pounds from the current model. It means that the new platform for 2018 BMW X5 will also allow the car to get more new engine to make it better than the previous model. We also expect that the car will be bigger in size because it is a family sedan but it shouldn’t give any impact to its performance crossover. The off-road capability is going to be gone. It is more aggressive that will remind you to the X6.

Up to now, no official photos have been released by the company for the upcoming 2018 BMW X5, but we glad that the car was spied for its testing and it was not just a test mule. It has wider and longer design which makes it has different profile. The biggest changes will be the cabin. It doesn’t go with the similar design as the 5 Series, but it is expected to get some shard details from the more expensive 7 Series. The larger size allows the car to be more spacious with the five-seat design for 2018 BMW X5.
