While they’re up, and you’ve got a full 5 passengers, you’ll have 33.9 cubic feet of cargo space. If you need even more passenger room, you also have the option of adding a third row of seats!

Optional BMW X5 Tow Package

Because the BMW X5 is engineered with your needs in mind, it comes with trailer hitch prewiring. To fully utilize this, you can add an optional BMW X5 tow hitch for $550. Thanks to this Class III trailer hitch, your maximum towing capacity is able to reach the staggering BMW X5 towing capacity of 7,200 pounds. Customize your BMW with more genuine BMW parts and accessories to give your powerful crossover a personal touch.
