1648 × 927


Mama D here and this week I am absolutely thrilled to be driving this gorgeous 2017 BMW X5/xDrive50i/M Sport throughout the Dallas area which has $8,000 in options. The reason I am so thrilled to be driving this Bimmer is because it is the exact one I drove at the BMW Driving School in SC, and let me tell you it can do amazing things!!!!

This 2017 BMW X5 has a Mineral White Metallic exterior which is stunning with a black interior and Dakota leather seats. It is accented with 20” M 5 Double-Spoke Black Wheels which really look sharp against the exterior. This BMW X5 has an M Sport Package option which is loaded with goodies such as Sport Automatic Transmission, M Steering Wheel, Aerodynamic Kit, M Foot Rest & M Door Sills,Without Lines Designation Outside, Shadowline Exterior Trim, High-Gloss Roof Rails, Launch Control and the M Sport Package.

This BMW X5 is equipped with a 445 HP 4.4 liter turbo V8 that can go 0-60 in just 4.7 seconds so it’s a beast to drive through the Dallas/Fort Worth Streets!! This X5 also has the added option of the Driving Assistance Plus Package. One awesome feature is that you can drive for 50 seconds hands free and stay in your lane with the Active Driving Assistant. There is Lane Department Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Pedestrian Warning and City Collision Mitigation all great safety features! My personal favorites though are the Active Blind Spot Detection and the Surround View which to me is priceless.

If you are up North right now experiencing the frigid weather you will love the Cold Weather Package which features Heated Steering Wheel, Heated Rear Seats and Retractable Headlight Washers.

The interior of this 2017 BMW X5 is both luxurious, super comfortable and well laid out. It has a 10.2 inch touch screen iDrive display which I found to be extremely user friendly. This xDrive50i also has lots of standard extras that are options on other models; such as 20-way multicontour front seats, quad- zone climate control, 16 speaker Harman Kardon Surround Sound System, satellite radio and a rearview camera to name a few.

For those of you that dare to take this gorgeous 2017 BMW X5 off road let me just brief you on some of the amazing things we did in driving school. We drove through rocky terrain (and perched the car on 2 big rocks on just 2 wheels), drove through high water features, had the car auto brake down a mountain and scaled the side of a wall which would have freaked me out had I not known that the BMW X5 was designed so the center of gravity was such that we wouldn’t tip over!! Unfortunately I did not get to drive the BMW X5 on the track but I took it on the express lanes in Dallas and most definitely this BMW has awesome power with superior handling!

This 2017 BMW X5 is just a pleasure to drive and has so many great features that I could go on and on. It truly is a culmination of all great things in one; luxury, style, comfort, safety and power delivering the “ultimate driving experience” and I cannot recommend a better luxury midsize crossover than this!!

So head on over to eCarOne – your luxury used car dealership in Carrollton and test drive this BMW through Plano, Irving, Frisco or Dallas for yourself and experience all it has to offer and tell them Mama D sent you.

Until next time my friends, safe and happy driving!
