|   Wednesday, September 04, 2013
BMW has lately showcased the latest SUV model - 2014 X5 M50d – which will actually become available for the customers starting the end of 2013. This is the second generation of X5 M50d performance diesel SUV but, unlike the previous one, it looks has improved a lot and it features on of the most powerful straight six diesel engines.

The performance figures which has been unveiled present a 3.0 liter turboengine, six cylinder diesel engine, reaching up to 381 horsepower at 546 lb-ft of torque.

Due to an eight speed automatic transmission and the xDrive all wheel drive, the diesel whole power is transferred to the road. Adaptive M suspension, which is specific for X5 M50d, includes an enhanced damper control and a rear axle which includes an air suspension in order to complete the electric power steering.

The same version of this engine system might be included on the 5-series and X6 models, overseas. The company has stated that this vehicle should be able to quote up to 62mph if just 5.3 seconds as long as the top speed has been limited to 155mph.

All the already mentioned features are not so impressive unless the fuel economy is mentioned, the BMW lovers should be happy to find out that this specific model is expected to run with up to 35 mile to the gallon less than the previous model.

Of course, the new model also includes several other updates. The new vehicle will also feature the dynamic damper control and 19 inch M light alloy wheels. What is more, an aero kit will also be included. There are a lot of changes in the interior, some might be enchanted by sports steering type of wheel, metal M badging or metal scuff plates.

Potential customers should only wait until November this year as this is the moment when the company will start the sales for this model in the United States. However, the first to models of the series which will be available are xDrive35i and xDrive50i, xDrive35d diesel will be available at the beginning of 2014.
As presented by the company, more efficient but still able to overpower the previous model with 62 mph in just 5.3 seconds, the BMW X5 M50g SUV is one great deal of a car, eagerly expected by the dealers and end consumers at the same time.

Remarkably enough, the new vehicle should reach 42.2 mpg on the EU cycle, compared to the 2013 model which received 37.7 mpg on the EU cycle. It should also be mentioned that the European fuel efficiency test cycle actually retrieves better figures that the EPA. But since this new version of X5 will not be available in the United States, this is not really an important issue.

The X5 M50d will be customizable through the BMW Individual Range and available in the showrooms no sooner than 16th of November 2013 so just a little more patience for those BMW fanatics.
