2014 BMW X5 Priced From $53,725

Follow Nelson

Unveiled just over a month ago, the 2014 BMW X5 adds some interesting new features and options, but the additions have increased the price by more than $6,000 to $53,725.

Last year's X5 xDrive 35i started at $47,500, and included standard all-wheel drive. The new entry price is for the rear-wheel drive 2014 X5 sDrive35i--a difference that most buyers won't likely notice in actual use, but might feel is a shortcoming at the dealership.

The price differential includes new standard equipment, however, such as: auto start-stop; BMW's latest iDrive 4.2 infotainment system with navigation and touchpad; 10 years of BMW Assist eCall service; 10 years of BMW TeleService; BMW Apps; 40-20-40 spit-folding rear seat; and standard Servotronic speed-sensitive power steering.

It's clear that BMW has decided to replace its all-wheel drive system with a more luxurious, more service-supported vehicle. That may be fine for drivers in warmer states, but those in the snow belt will want to opt for the all-wheel drive xDrive35i or xDrive50i models, which start from $56,025 and $69,125 respectively.

For those seeking better fuel economy, the 2014 X5 xDrive35d diesel should prove a useful companion, and its price premium--which includes the all-wheel drive system of the xDrive35i--is relatively small, starting at $57,525, or just $1,500 more than the gasoline-powered equivalent.

The 2014 BMW X5 will reach U.S. dealers in the fourth quarter of 2013, with gasoline models only at launch. The diesel-powered X5 xDrive35d will follow in early 2014.
