2014 bmw x5 spied testing with least camo ever

BMW’s popular X5 SUV is due for a list of changes in 2014 and the company appears to be well on its way to reaching them.

The latest set of spy photos show the car’s headlights, kidney grilles and portions of the body panels, which is more than ever before. While the vehicle, codenamed F15, will ride on a modified version of the current platform, it’s expected to offer significant weight savings over the current model.

Turbocharged six- and eight-cylinder engines are expected along with a diesel, a hybrid and the red-hot X5 M model.

BMW is expected to send the new X5 to production at it’s Spartanburg, SC plant in late 2013 before it reaches showrooms as a 2014 model.

    BMW will make the X5 look just like all the rest of the Beemer line. The DNA is way too strong in this company. It creates a lackluster deja 'vu appearance and a "I've seen this too many times before" feeling
