The new BMW X3 model will also be getting a fresh new look with a diesel engine in the form of an xDrive28d. The BMW X3 xDrive28d will be powered by a 2 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder diesel offering up 180 hp complete with 280 lb-ft of torque. The X3 xDrive28i will be powered by a turbo four cylinder which is the same as the X4 xDrive28i. The new 2015 X3 model will be available this spring.
The X4 Sports Activity Coupe will be offered as an off-road coupe with a few choices for an engine. There are two TwinPower turbo engines to choose from. One of those is the X4 xDrive28i, which will be equipped with a four cylinder capable of cranking out 240 horsepower. The other is the xDrive35i which features a 3 liter inline six cylinder engine with 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque.

BMW’s X5 eDrive concept will be on display at the NY auto show demonstrating the latest in vehicle technology. The X5 will offer BMW’s 2 liter four cylinder with a 95 hp electric motor. When the X5 is in “all electric” mode, the eDrive is said to get a manufacturer-estimated 19 mile range of speed up to 76 mph. In the luggage compartment floor there is a lithium-ion battery pack, which provides the most interior capacity and comfort. With European testing, the X5 eDrive was given a fuel efficiency rating of about 74 mpg.
