The new BMW X5 is a comfy, techy crossover, and comes with a powerful V8 option.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

This is the middle child of the X5 range, slotting between the xDrive50i and X5 M.

It comes with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8.

This is the same V8 you'll find in other X5s, but here it produces 523 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque.

Power is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
