The third generation of the crossover BMW X5 (F15) were put up for sale in 2013, and already at the end of this year its successor with the name «G05» will debut. The car was spotted before, but this time the prototype of the next generation of the Bavarian SUV was seen carrying a body of production car, although it was with the pre-production headlights and taillights. However, we can already see an increased radiator grille, modified bumpers and new forms of attachment to the dual tailpipes.

Following the latest trends, the novelty will get bigger dimensions, but the transition to the platform CLAR with the increased use of aluminum and some use of carbon fiber, as in the last 7-Series model, will help the car to become lighter.

The same architecture will become the basis for the first in the brand history luxury crossover X7 with four seats in the cabin, and a price tag of more than $ 100 000. Under the hood of the new BMW X5 we expect to see a range of 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder engines. An output of the most powerful of them is expected to be about 700 hp. Production of X5 2018 will be launched at the company’s plant in Spartanburg, North Carolina, USA.
