If you’re in the market for a new SUV for those weekend road trips out of Chula Vista, take a look at the 2020 BMW X5. Need to pull a boat or RV? No problem. The BMW X5 towing capacity is one of the best in its class! With BMW X5 towing you can haul between 6,202 and 7,200 pounds depending on whether or not you equip the BMW X5 tow package. Read more about the BMW X5 towing capacity here, and when you’re ready to get behind the wheel, contact BMW of San Diego.

Maximum BMW X5 Towing

A standard BMW X5 with no upgrades provides a towing capacity of 6,202 pounds. To reach the maximum 7,200-pound upper limit, you’ll need to go with the optional BMW X5 towing package which includes a special BMW X5 tow hitch (class 3). Adding the Class 3 BMW X5 tow hitch requires that you forgo the gesture-activated tailgate feature, but those who need the extra power will find that it’s an easy trade-off.
