The report further claims that the S68 engine will be a twin-turbo V8 motor with a ‘hot-vee’ configuration like its predecessor. It could receive a mild-hybrid treatment. Expect it to churn out around 535 hp of peak power. It would be 12 hp extra power generating as the current N63 engine returns 523 hp of power and 750 Nm of torque.

The other changes include a technically upgraded turbocharged straight-six B58 engine that is capable of generating 370 hp of power. The report further claims that the B57 turbodiesel inline-six engine too will receive an update.

While there would be a major change in the powertrain front, the 2023 BMW X5 facelift would arrive with significant changes at the exterior and inside the cabin as well. Expect it to come with sleeker and longer headlamps compared to the outgoing model, while the grille would come with a slightly wider appearance. Inside the cabin, it is expected to receive a host of upgrades. It could get a digital overhaul.
