i t does have many ideas from the X3. In all honesty, its not a big departure from the current X5

In any case, when should we be sellign the current ones before they take a depreciation dive?

I agree, looks so much like the X3 and changes are very moderate compared to the current model.

BTW, thanks for the post of the spy pics, been dying to see how the new model would look. I'm tempted to buy a 06 X5 seeing how moderate the changes are.

I've always liked the X5's styling (though I'm not an SUV fan...). This new model looks nice, so far.

It doesn't look much different from the current X5. By the way, do you know if they will offer the ride height control on this model?

Yes, the car is coming with air suspension. But I do not know if it will be standard on all models, or just on the top end ones.

Also expect: "revolution under the evolutionary skin".

Much better xDrive, and more other goodies.

The new E70 X5 will change the rules in the SUV / SAV segment again. Just like the E53 did in 1999.

Forgot to say - those pics are great, thanks for posting them. If I remember correctly, there will be a 3.0i I6, 4.8i v8 and a M5.0i(?) v10, right? I don't understand why not the 3.0i bi-turbo? That engine would do well with the new X5. I also wonder whether there will be a sport package for the 3.0i and 4.8i. I really can't wait to see more info on the new X5.

E70 X5 will come with various I6 & V8 petrol & diesel engines. N54 3.0L I6 bi-turbo among them. But I'm not sure it will be offered in US market or not.

There will be a "Si" variant. With turbo charged V8 engine (around 400hp). But not available at launch.

More info to come soon ...

You mean "is". Current rumors are that it will have V10 5.0 engine and wear an ///M badge.

No M version of X5. Only S version - with V8 turbo (approx 400hp) charged engine.

they should just bring the turbo diesel...and end the multiple engine options...it will perform way better anyways.

Note the tires and rims. It is not the "big" one, more in line with the 4.4. Assume this will be a "full size" SAV.
Thanks for the pics.

Hopefully a sport package will be shown at launch. The pictures shown above aren't really that appealing to me. Also, they should put some LED lights on the X5 so that it will look more high tech, IMO.

There will be CELIS LEDs - rings in the front ("angel eyes"), strips in the rear ("neon tubes" - like 7er, 6er, 3er, FL Z4, etc).

You want High tech? I have two words for you: "Flex Ray". Coming in E70.

Tine, you certainly have great info. Hopefully the FlexRay you referred to does not mean brake by wire.

No, no, no. No brake-by-wire in BMW cars. Certainly no after MB's debacle with SBC.

FlexRay will be used e.g. to control new active drive control functions. Imagine: even quicker reacting xDrive - now with power distribution not only front-to-rear, but also left-to-right. Not to mention new DCS++ functions. And all the other ConnectedDrive functons.

But mind: in E70 X5 FlexRay will be used for operating / controlling air suspension only. Fully operating FR will be used in BMW vehicles coming in year 2008 (e.g. new 7 - serries).
