2022 BMW X5 M Review: Specs and Pricing

2022 BMW X5 M


The 2022 BMW X5 M is built for scorching laps with its 600+ horsepower and track-tuned chassis, but you'll probably see it doing lukewarm circles in mall parking lots. This is due to the mid-size BMW X5's wildest version's ability to switch between a luxury family hauler and a craziness machine in a split second.

Even though its design isn't as daring as the X6 M's slanted back, it still has a bigger cargo area, and both body types offer luxurious interiors with first-rate amenities. Additionally, they both have an impressive automated transmission, a powerful twin-turbo V-8, and rear-biased all-wheel drive.

The X5 M defies the rules of physics with its acceleration, cornering grip, and stopping power thanks to performance enhancements and orchestration by BMW's renowned M division. It is the reason why some people are unfazed by its six-figure price tag or gripe about its uncomfortable ride. The rest will give way to the BMW M5 sedan, which is more conventional.

What has Changed for 2022?

BMW modifies the X5 M somewhat for 2022, adding improved Bluetooth technology to every model and removing wireless device charging from the list of standard amenities. Some minor improvements include new Dravit Grey Metallic vehicle paint, Silver stone Extended Merino leather upholstery, and altered option packages.

2022 BMW X5 M: Pricing

The BMW X5 M is available at a starting price of $2,60,213. The car is available in 1 variant, with 1 engine option and 1 Transmission option.

Which one to Purchase?

We advise investing the extra money in the Competition package for improved results. It has more horsepower, a louder exhaust system, a special Track mode, and bigger rear wheels and tires as standard equipment. Additionally, it adds padding to the edges of the center console and even finer leather upholstery to reduce knee bruising during sharp corners.

2022 BMW X5 M: Engine and Performance

Every X5 M has a monster hiding under the hood. Two turbochargers are forcing air into the 4.4-liter V-8 there, allowing it to produce 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. Another 17 ponies are included in the Competition package. An eight-speed automatic transmission and a variable all-wheel-drive system are standard on every X5 M. The latter gives the driver the option of increased agility in the rear-biased track mode or maximum traction at all four wheels.

Adaptive dampers and a pair of 21-inch wheels are included as standard features. However, there is also the option for individuals who like a staggered pair of rollers with 22 inches out back. The Competition package comes standard with the larger rear wheels. Our test drive of a Competition-equipped vehicle was impressive because of its eye-watering acceleration and sports-car-like cornering grip.

2022 BMW X5 M: Interior and Comfort

The X5 M's interior is superbly finished and equipped with a wide range of attractive amenities. Behind its leather-wrapped steering wheel, which houses a set of paddle shifters and red M drive-mode switches, is a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. Standard features include heated front armrests, an expansive head-up display, ambient inside lighting, and racy materials.

For an additional fee, one can add features like finer leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, heated back seats, and more. There is plenty of room for passengers in the front and back seats, and the luggage section behind the back row is large enough to accommodate 11 carry-on suitcases.

2022 BMW X5 M: Connectivity

Each X5 M boasts an extensive infotainment system and a tonne of connectivity options. A 12.3-inch touchscreen that can be operated with hand gestures, voice commands, and a rotary controller in the center console is used to display the company's iDrive software. A Bowers & Wilkins sound system is an add-on to the standard Harman/Kardon audio system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and other features.
