After rolling out the third generation model of the X5 Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) in the Indian market back in May 2014, BMW India have added a new entry-level variant called ‘Expedition’ to the X5’s range. The new BMW X5 Expedition has been priced at Rs 64.9 lakh (ex-showroom, India), which makes it cheaper by Rs 6 lakh than the more expensive Design Pure Experience variant that retails for Rs 70.9 lakh. 

The massive price cut has been achieved by ditching a number of serious equipment such as the sports gearbox, paddle shifts, LED headlights and fog lamps, launch control, electric seat lumbar support and folding third row seats. On the outside, the X5 Expedition has dropped the gloss-finished B- and C-pillars, the titanium-finished radiator grille and chrome finished tailpipes. Instead of LED headlights, the X5 Expedition gets bi-xenon headlights. Some of the connectivity features such as the 600W Harman Kardon system, BMW Apps, Navigation, the 26 cm display with DVD, hard drive and handwriting recognition have all been given a miss. 

The mechanical changes remain unchanged. This means that the X5 Expedition trim will be powered by the same 3.0-litre, six-cylinder diesel engine that is rated at 260PS and 560Nm. This engine comes mated to an 8-Speed automatic transmission, which sends power to all wheels with BMW’s xDrive technology.
