Furthermore, the 2019 BMW X5 will come with four-zone climate control, Panoramic glass roof with a 30 percent larger seethrough area than the current model. After seeing the leaked photos there isn't too much left to surprise us here, but the 2019 X5 does get a long list of new tech features.

Only days after teasing pictures of its fourth-generation X5 crossover in the ubiquitous black and white camouflage, BMW has now released a set of images showing the new X5 in all its unclothed glory.

However, despite those increases in its exterior dimensions, the 2019 X5 has the same trunk capacity of 645 liters as the outgoing third-generation X5, which can rise to as much as 1860 liters when the 60:40 split rear seats are folded away. To provide more room inside, the 2019 X5's wheelbase has been stretched by 1.65-inches. The BMW X5 xDrive40i is powered by a 3.0L six-cylinder engine with 340 hp and 332 lb-ft. of torque.

The two diesel engine options will include a 400bhp unit in the M50d and a 265bhp unit in the xDrive30d. Positioned at the top-of-the initial line-up will be the M50d M Performance, whose quad-turbocharged 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder diesel engine delivers 294kW and 760Nm of torque. You'll also notice the digitalized instrument cluster flanked by a large central touchscreen for controlling all infotainment functions on the right. By the end of 2018, the fourth generation BMW X5 will be available with the optional third row of seats with electric fore-and-aft adjustment. The package offers four driving modes: sand, rock, gravel or snow.

Harvey Weinstein pleads not guilty to rape and sexual assault charges
Harvey Weinstein appeared in court in NY on Tuesday, to plead not guilty on rape and criminal sex act charges . The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assaults unless they come forward publicly.

As with today's X5, all models come as standard with an eight-speed torque converter equipped automatic gearbox and BMW's xDrive four-wheel drive system. In front of the driver, the head-up display is now larger with 3D graphics and more display content.

Apart from a fake air breather duct mounted behind the front wheel arches, the flanks of the new X5 go largely unadorned; there's a feature line that runs from the trailing edge of front wheel arch underneath the front door handles and kicks up halfway along the rear doors as well as a second feature line within the lower part of the section of the doors, but they're both very subtle.

The new Emergency Stop Assistant brakes the vehicle automatically and steers it to the side of the road to avoid a collision, while the Parking Assistant features automated longitudinal and lateral guidance.
