The 2014 BMW X5 may not be one of BMW’s most performance-oriented models, but the company has released a full suite of M Performance parts that will be available for this luxury SUV. These accessories include numerous exterior upgrades, along with interior trim pieces, brake upgrades, and even a power kit that adds 20 hp to the BMW X5 xDrive 35i model.
To sharpen the exterior of the BMW X5, available performance parts include a front splitter, a rear diffuser, and a rear spoiler, along with 21-inch wheels wrapped in performance tires. There are also carbon fiber mirror caps, a black kidney grille, and M Performance decals for the rocker panels. Interior upgrades comprise of an available Alcantara steering wheel, a carbon fiber gear selector, and stainless steel pedals.
The M Performance upgrades go under the skin though, with available packages that beef up the X5’s braking, and power capabilities. A performance brake kit includes many parts adapted from the previous-generation BMW X5M, including six-piston calipers with 19-inch steel rotors. The M Performance power kit ups the output of the X5 xDrive 35i’s turbocharged inline-six to 320 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Along with the power increase comes sharper throttle calibration, and an available performance exhaust package gives the X5 a sportier engine note to compliment the extra power.
The M Performance Parts for the 2014 BMW X5 will be on sale online and at BMW dealers. These parts can be installed before delivery of the car and carry the full factory warranty that comes with any new X5.
