BMW X5 Tow Package

Are BMW X5 SUVs good for towing? As you now know, absolutely! Let’s check out the various available tow packages to make towing a breeze around St. Louis, MO. If you opt for the BMW X5 tow package, you’ll receive a Class III trailer hitch for $550. Although BMW makes this hitch easy to use, it’s important to consult your owner’s manual to be certain that you are familiar with its uses and processes before towing anything.

It’s important to note that if you opt for the BMW X5 tow hitch, this means that you won’t be able to take advantage of the Comfort Access feature that allows you to open the tailgate by waving your foot under the rear bumper. However, with the towing power the X5 provides, this is a small trade to make!
