The future generation of the BMW X5 has been recently caught on camera while it was being tested on the famous German track, the Nurburgring.
The Nurburgring might file for bankruptcy pretty soon because of its financial problems and huge debts but that isn’t stopping most automakers to test their vehicles there because this is still one of the greatest tracks in the world. The latest example of a new model testing on the Nurburgring is the next generation of the BMW X5, which was recently spotted by the spy photographers. As you can see from the video posted below, despite the new BMW X5 is covered in a thick layer of camouflage, its design is evolutionary and the model is expected to get more technical upgrades.
The 2014 BMW X5 will ride on a brand new architecture which is known as “X for All” in-house and this will be used across the whole BMW X range. The next generation of the mid-size crossover will weigh approximately 150 kg less to a total of 2,000 kg (4,409 lbs) and under its hood we will find a 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, producing 565 HP on the successor of the X5M, as well as the new 2.0 liter diesel with 245 HP and 349 Nmof torque (258 lb-ft). A hybrid is also expected to make its way into the range and the 2014 X5 should enter production next year.
