BMW has released information on its next-generation X5 SUV, which will be assembled in Greer, South Carolina.

The new X5 will have two engine choices: a 350-hp 4.8-liter V-8 or
a 260-hp, 3.0-liter in-line six, either with a six-speed automatic
transmission. The body is 7.4 inches longer, and adaptive steering and
suspension systems are available for the first time. The new vehicle
upgrades its all-wheel-drive system to “xDrive,” which has variable
torque-split capability.

The new X5 also will be offered in seven-seater versions.
