BMW X5 Facelift Spied with X6 Front Bumper

Our spy photographers have managed to catch another round of pictures showing the facelifted 2010 BMW X5 undergoing final testing.

With the current model dating back to 2007, BMW decided to give the facelifted X5 a more aggressive appearance by adopting the X6's front bumper. Other styling changes are expected to include a slightly modified rear bumper, minor interior updates, and a possible switch to LED taillights.

Engine options will most likely mirror that of today's X5, but the new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine with 400 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque will replace the aging 4.8-liter V8 that produces 350 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Should potential owners fail to be impressed by a sport-ute that can run from 0-60 mph in nearly six seconds flat, BMW will unveil a new X5 M which will boast a twin-turbo V8 that cranks out an monstrous 550 hp.
