As a luxury SUV, the 2020 BMW X3 offers lots of style, power, and cutting-edge technologies. However, it can also tow a great deal for your travels around Annapolis, Highland Beach, and Hillsmere Shores.
We’ll go over that in more detail with our BMW X3 towing capacity review. Read through the information below, then contact BMW of Annapolis to test drive this vehicle.
The 2020 BMW X3 is one high-powered vehicle. When properly equipped with its most powerful engine and other necessary towing features, you’ll be able to tow up to 4,400 pounds of trailer weight. In order to tow this much weight, you’ll need an available trailer hitch, tongue, and towing ball.
You may be wondering what this kind of towing capacity looks like. At 4,400 pounds, you could hitch a camping trailer to the back of the SUV or a small ski boat. So, if you’re taking the family to the woods or beach for a vacation, you can bring along those larger items with ease.
After your belongings are loaded into the BMW X3 or hitched to the back, you’ll be well on your way. At that point, you can enjoy the powerful performance that this automobile provides.
It comes standard with a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that delivers 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Upgrade to a higher trim level, and you’ll get a 3.0L TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder that churns out 382 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque.
Even with all that power at your disposal, you’ll still have a highly fuel-efficient SUV. After all, it achieves an EPA-estimated 21 city/27 highway MPG with the 3.0L engine. If you need to get to work, then pick up the kids from school, then run errands, you can do all that long before needing to stop for gas.
Furthermore, the X3 gives you optimum traction on the road when you need it thanks to the available xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which continually monitors road conditions. Once it detects excess slip, it’ll send power to the wheel with the surest footing. As a result, you’ll get responsive handling and maximum grip on even the slickest surfaces.
What about the smaller items? With the 2020 BMW X3, you’ll have more than enough room for the everyday objects or special cargo.
This BMW SUV provides 28.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the back row. With the standard 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats, one or two sides can go down—ensuring you have space for longer items while still leaving room for a couple of rear passengers.
If you need to utilize all the available cargo room, simply fold the entire back row down. You’ll then have 62.7 cubic feet for small pieces of furniture, luggage, or other large items.
Not only does the vehicle provide a big cargo area, but all the space is useable. There’s a small hidden part under the floor that’s great for keeping valuables neatly tucked away.
While the towing and hauling capabilities of the 2020 BMW X3 are impressive, they’re far from all that this luxury SUV has to offer.
