2013 X5 Production to start in April 2012
 
I asked sales person to check on the production date for 2013 X5. This is what he wrote back to me.

"I tried looking up the production schedule for the 2013 X5 but it looks like it is not available yet. However, when looking at the production schedule for the 2012 model year it is scheduled to end in March of this year and began production in April of 2011. This would likely mean that the 2013 model will follow the same schedule but I do not have any specific confirmation regarding that information"

Looks like may be a good idea to hold for two more months and get better price on the 2012 or order the 2013 model.

No one wants to wait to drive this beauty. I will get this one couple of years later.

Me530 01-24-2012 01:16 PM

Will the 2013 be the F15?

I would tend to trust the above info more then your dealer.

Realgeni 01-24-2012 02:42 PM

So according to the above chart the production 2012 will go on till June 2012. So no 2013 till then or it will be running in parallel.

BMW has released that the F15 will be on sale late 2013 as a 2014 model.

550isport 01-24-2012 09:54 PM

hmm
 
I have an X6 on order and not happy about the LCI being around the corner. We're off lease i March.. Can't wait for August (memo says end of production for pre lci is 7/12).

But... my sales guy said we can order an X6 with M performance package that wouldn't be in until May. I think that would be an LCI car? May I can wait for...

I'm confused. We need to hear from someone with some inside info from the plant.

As for the X5, all sources I've read say the redesign is not coming until next year...

Regards,
David

Form the X6 LCI press release:

"The 2013 BMW X6 arrives in US showrooms in the spring of 2012."

I would think that the X5 would be around the same time frame.

My 2013 X5 is also a week 20 (May) production... cant wait!

BenF12400 03-27-2012 10:47 AM

I ordered a "2013" X5 on March 17, nothing on the BMWUSA website that it is in production(SA had production number before I even committed), so I emailed BMWUSA and just got a reply yesterday that "the X5 with your production number is in production and is in the body shop" (not the exact words). Even today nothing on the "add new vehicle" site but previous posts suggest to expect a delay in this info reaching the website. Would need some advance notice for PCD (like a month) if I proceed that way.
My order:
X5 premiun
plat. gray metallic
beige interior, light poplar wood
conv. pkg
premium sound
multi-contour seats
space saver spare
cold weather pkg, BMW apps
My 2008 RX350 with 125,000 miles will be given to my daughter to replace my previous RX330(2004) I had given her which now has 145,000 miles. Will miss the "reliability" but the new RX given as loaners was boring. As wife said..."it's a girl's car".

Hi Ben, Can I ask how much you paid above invoice? I am In No CAL and ready to order. Thanks.

not sure, since my lease is up on 6/30, so I am in no great rush for it (relatively) I will head down to the dealer in SoCal and drive back up Rt 1 to make a weekend of it!

I need to ask any moderator if it's ok to mention what I paid - anybody know? (I'm buying, not leasing)

mgcyr 03-27-2012 03:15 PM

My dealer said that he will receive his first 2013's in late April or early May.
Do you think its worth it to get a 2013, or buy a 2012? I assume the 2012's will be discounted.

BenF12400 03-27-2012 03:21 PM

Dealer had about 10 2012s - half were diesels, the other half had 3rd row seats; CA didn't even try to sell me a 2012. Maybe he gets a bonus if he sells the first 2013?!

mgcyr 03-27-2012 03:35 PM

I need 3rd row seats.

durango9898 03-28-2012 07:15 AM

My dealer said that mine is going into Production during week 15. Ordered it on March 23rd. When I call the 800 number I get the message "Your vehicle is scheduled for Production with no confirmed production date". Nothing on the tracking website yet. Can't wait to get it. Need to clean out the garage and make room.

mgcyr 03-28-2012 08:19 AM

We still don't have prices for the MY2013. My dealer thinks they will be similar to 2012, but they reconfigured the packages offered.
I think I'll wait for a 2013 as the prices will likely be similar.

Yes they are. My order shows that it is a 2013. The only change was the price of the Convenience package (MSRP - $100 more). They changed the name of the Active seat package to Luxury Seating package. Price is the same as before. I ordered the Tech Pkg, Conv. Pkg, Luxury seat pkg, running boards and BMW Apps.

dme369 03-28-2012 09:11 AM

Ordered on February 27th....

Dealers have the X5 and X5M 2013 order guides already, pricing is about the same, some new options etc most importantly the M Performance Pkg (ZMX) $1600 gets you about 10% more power and some additional torque and some pretty trim bits... for to xDrive50 440bhp, 480ft/lbs

production starts in April, my order is wk 20 build in May... I believe this *should* be the same for the X6 as well

skyhome 03-28-2012 07:11 PM

Just ordered mine today and The dealer told me that the production date is is week 18...not sure why...
