Spyshots: 2010 BMW X5 Facelift, Less Camo
Still, the camo does let us see the overall shape of the changes. The facelifted X5 will receive a redesigned front fender, with a more upright position for the foglights. The bumper is also bulkier than in the current version, while the kidney grille is a bit bigger.
At the back, although even if it seems the overall shape of the taillight cluster has remained basically the same, the addition of LED stoplights appears to be the main change. The rear fender will not change much; not the same can be said about the hatch, which appears to boast some new lines.
On the inside, the X5 will receive, reportedly, the most of the modifications, with more accent placed on high-quality materials.
From the engine standpoint, the fact that this is only a facelift hints to no major changes. A new unit is however said to get ready an join the range, namely the 4.4l Twin Scroll turbocharged V8 featured on the M version of the SUV.
Sometimes in the future, BMW is rumored to plan the addition of a possible triturbo engine. The unit is said to develop 354 horsepower and, if true, will become the first high performance diesel version of the X5.
