The BMW X5 was unveiled in 1999 at the North American International Auto Show, and has been in production since then. To commemorate this, BMW is producing a limited-edition X5 xDrive 35d 10-Year Edition model.
To create the anniversary version of the X5, BMW added unique exterior features to differentiate the vehicles. The 10-Year Edition comes in Sophisto Grey metallic with unique 20-inch Y-spoke aluminum wheels along with matte-aluminum roof rails and exterior trim. BMW’s huge panoramic sunroof comes standard as well.
Inside, BMW’s electronically adjustable “comfort seats” come standard, covered with an exclusive shade of Nappa leather plus an anthracite headliner and BMW Individual piano-black trim. BMW also fitted “10-Year” plaques to the front doors, sill plates, and dashboard.
The 10-Year Edition X5 is available with only one engine choice, and as its full name — BMW X5 xDrive35d 10-Year Edition — suggests, it’s BMW’s 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder diesel. Other “normal” X5 options remain, including a hard-drive-based navigation system and an 825-watt, 16-speaker sound system.
Only 2000 of the BMW X5 xDrive35d 10-Year Edition models will be produced worldwide.
