BMW X3 Towing Capacity & Capability

The BMW X3 has the brilliance you’ll find in any BMW model and pairs that shimmer with everyday capability.

When guided by its available 3.0L BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine, the BMW X3 can generate a whopping 4,400 pounds of maximum towing capacity. That figure looks even more impressive when you consider the standing curb weight of the vehicle is a mere 4,610 pounds.

In addition to the towing capabilities, you can bring along a maximum of 904 pounds of payload inside the vehicle when properly equipped.


Understanding the Engine Specifications

The delightful BMW X3 comes with two engine options. Each engine delivers sterling specifications and provides the necessary power for your towing and family hauling needs.

The standard powerplant is a 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder that generates 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This motor can also get up to 60 MPH in six seconds flat while reaching a top speed of 130 MPH.

From there, you can jump to the aforementioned 3.0L BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder with its mighty output of 473 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. You’ll also find sizzling speed with this engine as it moves the SUV to 60 MPH in 3.9 seconds and hits a top speed of 155 MPH.

Paired with the engine is an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission that’s coupled with Sport and Manual shift modes. These different modes allow you to customize your performance while cruising down the street.

Sport mode ups the athleticism, creating a more rigid suspension and tightening body roll around winding roads. With the Manual mode, you can transition between gears on your own whim, creating a more engaged driving experience.

Additional Performance Features

When you opt for a BMW model like the sterling BMW X3, you expect a wealth of advanced performance features beyond the high-powered engine and deft transmission.

For instance, the run-flat performance tires are ultra-sticky and provide confidence in all driving scenarios. The vehicle weight distribution is almost equal, too, with 48.6% in the front and 51.4% in the rear. That balance is stunning in an SUV of this size, providing drivers with sublime handling whether you’re cruising solo or hauling the kids as well as pulling a hefty trailer.
