Under $60,000: 2020 BMW X5 on Everyman Driver

In 2019, BMW introduced the fourth generation of its midsize X5 crossover. For 2020, the X5 gets some important updates.  Both of last year’s trims return. The base xDrive40i package includes a 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine with 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, enough to get to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds.

From CarGurus: Meanwhile, the xDrive50i comes with a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 making 456 hp and 479 lb-ft, along with a 0-to-60 time of just 4.6 seconds. The xDrive40i and xDrive50i both include an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive (AWD). For 2020, BMW introduces the M50i trim as the top performance option. It uses the same basic V8 and AWD system as the xDrive50i but ramped up to 523 hp and 553 lb-ft, plus a sport-tuned version of the 8-speed automatic transmission. The M50i blazes to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. You get an M Sport body kit, unique 20-inch wheels, an adaptive sport suspension, a specially tuned exhaust, uprated brakes, and a performance rear differential. Launch control and a driving mode that allows you to send all of the power to the rear wheels for maximum fun are both available. As of this writing, BMW hasn’t yet released official fuel-economy figures.
