How Much Can the 2019 BMW X5 Tow?
The 2019 BMW X5 can tow up to 7,209 pounds when equipped with a factory hitch. At 12% braked (using trailer brakes), the vehicle can tow 6,603 pounds.
You may be wondering what that kind of towing capacity looks like. Between 6,000 and 7,500 pounds could equate to a camping trailer, small horse trailer, or small ski boat. So, whether you’re heading on the trails or the slopes, you can easily take the equipment you need with you.
Furthermore, the BMW X5 has a maximum payload of 871 pounds, which factors in the entire cabin space, from the front row to behind the rear seats. So, whether you need room for people, cargo, or both, this BMW SUV can handle them all with ease.
BMW X5 Cargo Room
As we mentioned before, the 2019 X5 can hold a great deal of cargo. Behind the rear seats, you get 33.9 cubic feet of cargo room. If you’re riding solo and need more cargo space, simply fold the rear seats down to get 72.3 cubic feet.
A power liftgate comes standard and is split in half. The top part raises up like a standard gate, while the bottom part lowers like a pickup truck tailgate. This liftgate gives you a much more convenient way to load, unload, and organize cargo.
In addition, a hands-free power liftgate is available. This feature makes it easy to access the cargo area, even when your hands are full. Simply swipe your foot under the rear bumper, and the liftgate will open in seconds to quickly load up and be on your way.
2019 X5 Performance Specs
Once your belongings are hitched to the SUV or stored securely inside, it’s time to get to your destination. Luckily, the BMW X5 offers a smooth ride and impressive handling both on and off the pavement.
The vehicle comes standard with a 3.0L TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine that delivers 335 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. For even more eager acceleration, there’s the available 4.4L TwinPower Turbo V8. This engine churns out 456 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, giving you ample power in almost any driving situation.
The vehicle also comes standard in xDrive, BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system. It continuously monitors road conditions to detect when extra traction may be needed. It’ll then evenly distribute torque between the front and rear axles before wheel slip can occur. Once it does its magic, you can have an easier time driving on slick surfaces.
