X5 vs. GLE: Performance & Capacities  

While both vehicles are strong performers, the GLE offers smoother transitions with its 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission. The X5 lacks the same gears with its 8-speed automatic transmission. In addition to varied performance, drivers will be able to bring more along their San Bernardino County travels, thanks to the capabilities of the GLE: 

  • Seating: Both SUVs offer standard seating for five passengers, but the GLE has the option to seat up to seven. 
  • Towing: The maximum towing capacity for the X5 is 6,603 lbs. The GLE pushes well beyond the X5’s capabilities and can tow up to 7,700 lbs around Chino or Rancho Cucamonga with the proper equipment. 
  • Cargo Capacity: The X5 offers up to 72.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded, while the GLE interior offers more cargo carrying capabilities with up to 80.3 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded. 

X5 vs. GLE: Luxury Features 

The BMW X5 offers a wide variety of features for drivers and their passengers to appreciate, including: 

  • Heated front seats
  • Telematics service
  • Power sunroof
  • Electronic trunk lid
  • Garage door opener
  • Driver memory settings
  • Optional cooled seats 

The major difference between the X5 and GLE is price. For around $4,000 less, you’ll get similar features plus additions like the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) and ATTENTION ASSIST®
