BMW has just released the F15 generation of the X5 M50d performance diesel model. The previous generation's model 3.0 liter tri-turbocharged inline-six diesel with 375hp and a peak torque of 740Nm gets into a bigger but lighter body of the F15 X5.

Even though the engine remains the same, the new model reaches 100km/h 0.1 seconds faster at 5.3 seconds. Fuel economy is also improved by more than ten percent at 6.7l/100km (equal to 35.1 mpg US or 42.2 mpg UK) on the combined cycle, with CO2 emissions of 177 g/km.
