The 2024 BMW X5 Shines in Blue Ridge Mountain Paint

In BMW’s lineup, the spotlight often gravitates towards pricier models, like the M60i and M versions, known for their hefty profit margins. But let’s not overlook the charm of the regular xDrive40i. Dressed in Blue Ridge Mountain Metallic, sans the M Sport Package, it stood alongside the X5 M60i at the 2023 Test Fest in Greenville, South Carolina.

This xDrive40i boasts extras, including 21-inch wheels for an extra cost. Inside, the Sensafin Cognac upholstery is a no-cost luxury. The major splurge here is the Executive Package, bundling glass controls, remote engine start, Harman Kardon sound, and full LED adaptive headlights, along with Live Cockpit Pro and gesture controls.

Additional costs include the Driving Assistance Package, Parking Assistance, and the Climate Comfort Package, adding front and rear heated seats, four-zone climate control, heated front armrests, and a steering wheel. Topping it off are contour seats, adding the destination charge, and the grand total for this X5 xDrive40i is $80,145.

In today’s SUV market with soaring prices, this might not seem exorbitant, especially for a BMW bearing the iconic roundel. Compare it to the ALPINA XB7 or the XM, and it’s downright reasonable. Even with the Competition-only X5 M, the X5 M60i seems like a budget option.
