(2004 model shown)

X5

Graced with powertrain and styling revisions and a new xDrive all-wheel-drive system last year, the mid-size X5 sport-utility vehicle receives only minor changes for 2005. An iPod Adapter is newly available that allows Apple's popular iPod MP3 player to interface with and be operated by the vehicle's audio system. The base 3.0i comes powered by a 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine that, at 226 horsepower, works hard to move this fairly large and heavy vehicle up an on-ramp. Meanwhile, a 4.4-liter V-8 produces a healthier 315 horsepower, while the top 4.8is model offers an even-more-pleasing 355-hp 4.8-liter V-8. A six-speed-manual gearbox is standard on the base version, with a five-speed-automatic transmission optional, while V-8 models offer only a six-speed automatic. Among the vehicle's many upscale options is a Sport Package that adds a tauter suspension for a bit more-precise handling, among other upgrades.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
