BMW X5 Updates
Very few changes are anticipated for Upcoming 2012 Cars since the more dramatic ones involving over 4,000 new parts were just completed last year. Those changes, generally related to the drive train, added turbo charging, kicked up the horsepower with new gasoline engines, and made an eight-speed automatic transmission standard.
Transmission and Body Style
Since these are being carried over, buyers of the Upcoming 2012 Cars X5 can be assured the transmission has proven that it is capable of instant acceleration without interruption of power. Approximately one-third of the new X5’s are expected to be equipped with the diesel-powered xDrive35d. The body style will be similar to the past models with a long wheelbase and short overhangs that give it a muscular look. The next big refresh for the BMW 5 Series probably won’t come before the 2014 model year.
