This past weekend I brought you a story coming to us from Australia, of all places, telling us that the next-gen BMW X5 had been fast tracked.

In other words, the current-gen X5 is going to get dumped quicker than expected.

There's multiple reasons for this but we're thinking the two primary levers for this action are the following:

1) The current-gen lacks any sizzle with a lot of all-new competition hitting the market; and,

2) The all-new and highly anticipated X7 is finally going to get released — following the all-new X5 — in 2018.

We think this is a great idea after being pretty lukewarm with the current-gen model.

Captured in all-new spy shots, the next-gen X5 is seen not wearing any heavy duty cladding or overtly kooky camouflage. While we're hoping for its design to get a bit more panache, that doesn't seem to be patently obvious in the latest spy pics.

What is apparent, however, is that the X5 will be able to take on the Nürburgring at high speed. According to the latest reports, the all-new X5 will benefit from significant weigh savings and a mixture of four-, six- and eight-cylinder motors.

I think it's safe to say we can expect standard gasoline-powered motors, an electric version and, of course, an M-powered monster good for ~600 horsepower.
