2022 X5 Tow Package

The BMW X5 tow package includes a Class III trailer hitch, and is available on every model in the lineup for just $550. While this tow hitch is simple to operate, it’s important to familiarize yourself with each of the BMW X5 towing information in your owner’s manual before you try to hook up and pull a trailer. 

If you opt for the BMW X5 tow hitch, it will require you to remove the optional Comfort Access feature, which lets you open your tailgate by running a foot beneath the bumper. While this will be a fair trade for most drivers, it’s something you’ll want to keep in mind when considering the BMW X5 tow package. 

2022 X5 Towing Features

If you plan on using your BMW X5 for a number of outdoor adventures, you’ll want to consider upgrading to the xDrive all-wheel drive system. This AWD system will allow you to take advantage of extra traction and capability when you take the road less traveled. However, even if you decide to forgo the xDrive AWD system, you’ll enjoy these standard features when you tow and on your everyday Seattle drives:

  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Brake Fade Compensation, Start-off Assistant, Brake Drying, and Brake Stand-by features
  • Dynamic Traction Control (DTC)
  • Dynamic Brake Control (DBC)
  • Hill Descent Control (HDC)
  • Dynamic Damper Control
  • 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes
  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Icon Adaptive Full LED Headlights
  • LED fog lights and Automatic High Beams
  • Programmable LED Daytime Running Lights
  • Active Driving Assistant with Frontal Collision Warning, Active Blind Spot Detection, and a Lane Departure Warning

If you’re looking for added support when you tow a trailer, boat, or camper, these optional BMW X5 features are worth consideration: 

  • The Parking Assistance Package ($800) adds Surround View w/ 3D View, a feature that makes it much easier to hook up a trailer or navigate crowded lots and campsites. You’ll also receive automatic Parking Assistant Plus, which will come in handy elsewhere.
  • The Dynamic Handling Package ($2,600) is offered on the M40i. When equipped, you’ll enjoy superior control due to Adaptive M Suspension Professional, Active Roll Stabilization, and Integral Active Steering.
