BREAKING: 2014 BMW X5 leaked

2014 BMW X5 leaked photo

Larger and lighter

These are the first images with the 2014 BMW X5 ahead of its launch sometime this year.

The third generation of the German SUV – codenamed F15 – has been spotted on a recently launched brochure of scale models made by Jadi Modelcraft. The photos were uploaded on the Facebook account of one of their dealers (Diecast Empire) and we get to see how the new X5 is shaping up.

If these images turn out to be accurate, the 2014 X5 will get the front fascia of the 3-Series,  with the air vents on both sides of the front bumper from the 4-Series, while at the back the taillights come from the X3. We already know the interior will be more premium and in the United States (at least) it will be offered with a third-row seating option.

There aren't any confirmed details about the engine lineup, but it could include a 2.0-liter diesel with 245 hp (183 kW), a 3.0-liter diesel with 302 hp (225 kW) and a V8 4.4-liter twin-turbo generating 402 hp (300 kW). A hybrid variant is also possible, featuring a 3.0-liter twin-turbo and an electric motor generating a combined output of 335 hp (340 PS) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm).

The X5 M is expected to get a different wheel/tire combo, a specially tuned suspension and slightly more power from the V8 4.4-liter turbo which in the current X5 M version puts out 547 hp (408 kW) and 502 lb-ft (680 Nm).

So is this like what Mercedes and VW does and claim an extensive face-lift as a new model? (SLK, SL, Golf: Previous generation)

If this is really the X5 then it is a step backward

No guys, this is a Photoshop, i can tell from experience. Proportions are wrong. Some details have wrong lighting, wrong perspective, etc.

Really BMW, you have to stop with the cut & paste with a few touch ups. It looks like a rehash of the X1 backside grafted onto 5 front end and something else thrown in the middle. Can you get back to some originality instead of BMW generic?

Just boooooring...doesn't look bad either good. It is not much different from first X5 generation. I was hoping they would come up with something more inovative and couragious. I am big fan of BMWs but the SUVs aren't my cup of coffee.

I think with all other companies from Merc to Jeep getting too much media attention than BMW, something from BMW just had to be leaked.

Already looks like I've seen it for months. This is a design evolution, no revolution here.

Ugly, and out of design direction. What's up with those fog lights, they look like warts out of the X1 design language. Better get an Italian involved, after Michellotti(80s), BMW is gone downhill and stuck with old, staid design lines!

What is with BMW in the last time? And Mercedes too. I hope that the next next generations will be more beautiful and give more class, like they did long time ago.

I get the impression that there are a lot of X5 enthusiasts here because this 3rd Gen version is by far the ugliest on record. The sales of the original game-changer must be going throught the roof on the Used Market now! The previous Gen is larger, but kept the good looks of the original in some style and now this monstrosity. What is going on with BMW designs nowadays? Makes you wanna go Back In Time to the 80s!

the front looks like the 5 series and the back just like the 7 series. it looks much better than any SUV on the current market. The X5 has the performance but the thing that I did not like about it is the ride quality and quietness. it gives you sprty feeling and not the isolation that you get from the (ML or RX). other than that, as I said i think this is the best looking car in its category.

It feels like the first generation (1999) has looked better than all subsequent generations.

No progress in design. Same with Apple and its products....will be getting in trouble in some years.
