BMW X5 Tow Package

Keep in mind that the foot-activated tailgate must be removed to add the BMW X5 tow hitch. With or without the towing package, you’ll have plenty of room for cargo in the 2020 BMW X5 interior.

BMW X5 Off-Road Package

If you plan on taking your payload off-road this year, you’ll want to add the optional X5 Off-Road Package. The package includes a suite of technology features to increase the BMW X5 towing capacity and stability anytime you tow off the beaten path:

  • Two-Axle Air Suspension — This suspension upgrade allows your X5 to raise and lower itself by 1.6 inches when traveling at low speeds, so it’s easier to take on rough terrain.
  • Electronically-Controlled Rear Differential Lock — This feature gives the X5 a rear-wheel locking effect to improve control during as you take corners.
  • xOffroad Package — This package of advanced features includes front and rear underguard elements, a mechanical differential lock, and four off-roading drive modes. If you know you’ll be tackling a wide variety of terrain, selectable driving modes optimize vehicle height and powertrain settings for sand, rocks, gravel, and snow.
