White BMW X5

If you’re in the market for a new luxury SUV for those weekend adventures out of Bloomington, the 2021 BMW X5 may be perfect–especially if you want to pull a boat or RV. Without a doubt, this model is one of the top competitors in its class! With the 2021 BMW X5 and the BMW X5 tow package, you can pull up to 7,200 pounds. Read on to learn more about the BMW X5 towing capacity here, and when you’re ready to take a test drive, contact Motorwerks BMW.

Reaching the Maximum BMW X5 Towing Capacity

To achieve the maximum 7,200-pound BMW X5 towing capacity, you’ll need to upgrade with the available BMW X5 tow package and the accompanying tow hitch (Class III). If maximizing your towing capacity is an important concern, you’ll want to choose one of the three non-hybrid trims. However, even the plug-in X5 is more than capable in most settings.Adding the Class III BMW X5 tow hitch requires you to forgo the gesture-activated tailgate feature, but for the hardest-working St Paul and Minneapolis drivers, this is just a small price to pay.
