2006 BMW X5 Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2006 4dr SUV turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6 8-sp shiftable automatic AWD The 3.0L i6 is rather underpowered, and it's hard for me to squeeze even 22 mpg out of my X5. Most of the time, I get close to 20. Most V8 X5s from this generation get 16-18 mpg.
