The 2019 BMW X5 is a capable luxury crossover SUV offers a towing capacity between 6,600 and 7,200 pounds maximum for Syosset drivers. Add that to the X5 payload capacity of 1,290 to 1,349 pounds, and you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of utility in the X5. Explore BMW X5 towing and performance capabilities at Rallye BMW.

BMW X5 Tow Package

With the BMW X5 xDrive40i or X5 xDrive50i, you can opt for the BMW X5 tow package to equip your model for hauling jobs. This package includes the BMW X5 tow hitch for $550–it is a Class III trailer hitch that allows for up to 7,200 pounds towing capacity.

Off-Road Towing

If you have a boat in Roslyn that you want to take to the lake, or a camper to bring onto a secluded campsite in the forest or desert, you’ll want to consider the BMW X5 Off-Road Package ($3,950) for safer towing on unpaved terrain:

  • Front/Rear Underguards: Underguards offer extra protection for your X5 on the rocky or bumpy terrain around Roslyn and Jericho.
  • Two-Axle Air Suspension: With this suspension system, the vehicle can raise and lower itself by 1.6 inches when traveling at low speeds.
  • Electronically-Controlled Rear Differential Lock: With the M Sport Differential, the X5 benefits from a rear-wheel locking effect that improves control during cornering.
  • Four Driving Modes: These modes select the best settings for the vehicle height, AWD system, power steering, accelerator response, automatic transmission, and more. This helps you traverse sand, rock, gravel, and snow.

BMW X5 Engine Options

The 2019 BMW X5 is offered in two trims, both with standard intelligent all-wheel drive: xDrive40i and xDrive50i. Take a look at the X5 engine specs to decide which one works best for you:

  • 3.0L Twin-Turbo Inline-6: This is the standard engine for the xDrive40i. It comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and generates 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway.
  • 4.4L TwinPower Turbo V8: This upgraded engine is standard on the X5 xDrive50i trim, as well as an 8-speed automatic transmission. It produces 456 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque and earns 17 mpg city/22 mpg highway.
