As with nearly all Bimmers, the turbocharged inline-six under the hood is a great engine. Not only does it make a satisfying sound as it revs smoothly and swiftly to its 7000-rpm redline, it also makes an ideal pair with the eight-speed automatic transmission, which kicks down promptly and is rarely caught in the wrong gear. Acceleration performance isn’t quite class-leading, owing to the X5’s prodigious 4911-pound mass, but it nonetheless managed a competitive zero-to-60-mph time of 6.0 seconds and a quarter-mile run of 14.6 seconds at 95 mph. More impressive was the 27 mpg it recorded on a real-world 75-mph highway fuel-economy test, beating both its EPA highway estimate and the V-6–powered Audi Q7 by 3 mpg, while also surpassing even the considerably less powerful four-cylinder Q7 by 1 mpg.
Its heart lives up to BMW’s billing as an expert engine builder.
