BMW has announced an update for its US-built X5 SUV. The facelifted model debuts in September 2003 at the Frankfurt motor show, and goes on sale soon after with right hand drive models available from January 2004. The X5 receives three new engines (two in the US which won't get the diesel). Eight-cylinder power comes from a 4.4i V8, with a new high performance X5 4.8iS arriving in spring 2004. BMW's latest six-cylinder 3.0 diesel engine is added to the line up, and is complemented by the 3.0i petrol engine carried over from the existing car.
