Who said BMWs were only made for looks? Contrary to popular belief, BMW models can get just as down and dirty as some of the most powerful off-road vehicles on the market. For either the BMW X5 or X7, you have the opportunity to add the xOffroad Package and conquer any driving condition imaginable. Take a look and see what you can do with it!
What is the xOffRoad Package?
The package gives you the best combination of supreme ride comfort with the versatility of multi-terrain management, all at just the press of a button. With it, you get up to four different driving modes for different terrains: xSnow, xSand, xGravel, and xRocks. Choose between any of these modes and feel how both the suspension and engine’s transmission change accordingly.
How Does xOffroad Work?
Located on the centre console of your compatible BMW model, you’ll find a rocker switch that can turn on/off the xOffRoad settings. From there, depending on what mode you use, the Two Axle Air Suspension adjusts its height to meet whatever terrain you’re driving on and gives you optimal settings for the conditions you’re driving on.
What Does Each xOffroad Driving Mode Do?
The xOffRoad Package gives you up to four different driving modes. Each one affects vehicle settings differently:
- xSnow: Normal height, comfort throttle, shifts gears earlier and changes them gently.
- xSand: Changes suspension by 20mm, adds aggressive throttle by holding the gear longer to change later for a higher RPM.
- xGravel: Adjusts the suspension by 20mm.
- xRocks: Highest suspension of 40mm, optimized throttle, holds gears longer for RPM to get through tougher terrain.
