It is, by and large, a modern crossover SUV that does a good job when it gets on asphalt. Unlike some of its peers in its class, the BMW X5 2017 offers a dynamic road feel. It is elegant, comfortable and is stylish looking.

Power is one thing that remains a common denominator with any of the BMW X5 trim models. The X5 xDrive50i, for instance, cranks out a whopping 445 hp that helps it sprint from 0-60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. Those looking for more excitement can opt for the 2017 BMW X5 M model that ups the power output to a whopping 567 horsepower.

In addition to offering an ‘insane’ output, the 2017 BMW X5 M model also offers eighteen-way sport seats, 21” wheels unique body styling, an adaptive sport suspension, and massive brakes. On the flipside, though, the X5 M model’s ride quality feels a bit harsher, and the sensitive gas pedal makes it difficult for a driver to pull away from a stoplight.

Even with these downsides, the X5 M model manages to shine through. Solid rivals here include the Mercedes-AMG GLE63, Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR, and the Porsche Cayenne. The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover SVR price starts from an MSRP of around $111,350, and for that amount it gets you a composed handling, true off-road capability, a powerful supercharged V8 engine, an available seven-passenger seating, and a fuel-efficient diesel option. Additional Land Rover Range Rover SVR specs include a special interior and exterior styling and trim details. A sport-tuned suspension and steering, 21” wheels, rear sport wheels, and a sportier transmission programming. The Land Rover Range Rover release date should be expected at the fall of 2017.
