"For those who love the feel and drive of a BMW. not to mention those who don't need a third row or a sport/ute capable of crawling over rocks. the new (2008) X5 is surely worth the premium. " -- Motor Trend 

"In sum. BMW seems to have made a good thing still better in the new (2008) X5. " – Newsday 

"All in all. we found this big vehicle to be a pleasure to drive with excellent road manners -- one of the best sport utilities that we have driven. " -- MarketWatch 

6) HISTORY

The BMW E70 (2007 – 2013) is second-generation BMW X5 mid-size luxury crossover SUV. It replaced the BMW X5 (E53) in November 2006. The xDrive AWD system updates previewed in the face lifted X5 have continued with further detail improvements for the E70. It uses a double wishbone suspension at the front. The manual transmission is entirely dropped. leaving only the automatic transmission.  

The E70 features many new technological advancements for this class as standard equipment including BMW's iDrive system. electronic 'joystick' gearshift (no mechanical connection to the gearbox to win space in the console). LED tail lamps. the first ever all-polypropylene single module fender module. and options such as head-up display HUD. active steering. active damping. and Dynamic Drive which uses active anti-roll bars which use a hydraulic servo in the middle to actively counteract body roll.  

The interior of the new. larger. X5 is completely new. It has a large center-mounted display screen and the simplified iDrive. a man-machine interface system also found in the rest of the BMW model range. The E70 further incorporates many comfort options such as a glass panorama roof. and. for the first time in a BMW. an optional third row seat which has increased the seating capacity in E70 to 7 passengers. addressing criticism of the E53 model which had been regarded as being slightly too small for this market segment.  

The E70 is also the first production vehicle to use FlexRay. a new extremely fast electrical bus system; it is only used for the control of the chassis damping system. The new joy-stick-style electronic space-saving shifter has since been adopted in the new 2008 BMW 5 Series.

12) 2008 BMW X5 Performance Overview 

Note: This performance review was created when the 2008 BMW X5 was new.  

The 2008 BMW X5 offers two engine choices: The 260-horsepower inline six standard in the X5 3. 0si is plenty strong for a family drive. and the 350-hp 4. 8-liter V8 in the X5 4. 8i adds the punch desired by true driving enthusiasts.  

Consumer Guide reports "outstanding balance. grip. steering feel make X5 feel more like a sport sedan than an SUV. " Along with plenty of power (particularly in the V8). the X5 has exacting steering. a sport-tuned suspension. powerful brakes and an efficient all-wheel drive system. causing reviewers to rave over its complete driving experience. The Kansas City Star calls the X5 "a pavement burner. " 

It's in the X5's performance that BMW gives its unique take on the SUV. "Compared with the Mercedes-Benz M-class. says Automobile Magazine. "the new X5 is still a little firmer. edgier and more aggressive in the way it translates driver inputs. " Though the X5 pleased the majority of reviewers on the road. it isn't meant for off-roading. "Without a low range. all-terrain tires or adequate ground clearance. the X5 is still a soft-roader. explains Motor Trend.  

With power to spare and handling like a sports sedan. MSN simply says the BMW X5 "is a kick to drive" while the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette adds that the X5 "corners aggressively. shifts firmly and accelerates powerfully. "
 

Acceleration and Power 

The 2008 X5 is available as a 3. 0si (with a 3. 0 liter in-line six making 260 horsepower) or a more-powerful 4. 8i (with a 4. 8-liter V8 making 350 horsepower). The 4. 8i has an admirable 6. 4-second zero-to-60 time. and the 3. 0si comes in at 7. 8 seconds. As for top speeds. the 3. 0si can get up to 130 mph. and though the 4. 8i has a 150 mph top speed. its governor kicks in at 130. The X5's acceleration and overall speed are so strong that The Car Connection reports "anything like legal speed driving doesn't begin to challenge its composure. " 

Both of the powerful X5 engines are paired with a six-speed automatic steptronic transmission. The transmission was well-liked by all reviewers. "Shift timing. quality. and firmness are what you'd expect from a BMW -- nicely aggressive when driving aggressively. but smooth as glass when you're just cruising along. adds Cars. com. Many reviewers bemoaned the lack of paddle shifters. which Autobytel called "a glaring omission. " That aside. all reviewers liked the transmission.  

However. it's in the transmission that the X5 makes no bones about the fact that it isn't intended for heavy off-road use. There is no low-range gearing. and the all-wheel-drive system is always on. "Going off-road?" asks Motor Trend. "Unless you plan on some light-duty action. the X5 isn't your rig. " TopSpeed calls the transmission "road oriented. noting that it "directed 60% of the engine's torque to the rear wheels. making it feel as close as possible to the company's rear-wheel drive sedans. " 

The X5 has an admirable tow system. and when properly equipped the 4. 8i can handle pulling up to 6. 00 pounds.
 

Handling and Braking 

A new double wishbone front suspension meshes with the rear multi-link setup and a body structure that's 15 percent stiffer than previous X5 models to give the X5 handling and ride capabilities characteristic of BMW. "We think the switch to a control-arm suspension up front -- BMW's first since 1961 -- is real progress. says Car and Driver. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette adds that the X5 "corners aggressively. shifts firmly and accelerates powerfully. " 

X5 families will enjoy a ride that most reviewers said is similar to any of BMW's other cars. The Atlantic City Press comments that "an all-new body structure gives the X5 great handling abilities and ride comfort. " But in typical BMW style. the ride is best appreciated by the driver. "The ride is a bit harder than Americans typically prefer. but you want road feel in a BMW. observes BusinessWeek.  

When it's time to stop the X5. the four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes don't disappoint. "The brakes are. of course. amazing. writes the Los Angeles Times. The brakes are made even more capable by dynamic brake control. which applies the brakes to individual wheels in slippery situations. and automatic brake drying to ensure the brakes don't become slippery themselves. Brake fade control and brake stand-by are also standard.
