US BMW dealers are receiving order guides for the upcoming 2014 BMW X5 (F15), along with a special order form to order their first demo cars. The order guides reveal the lines, options and packages that will be available on the F15 X5.

Images of the production model were already leaked last month (copied below) and it showed the latest in BMW styling and design elements, including headlights which connect to the kidney grilles, air curtain technology in the bumper and functional front fender vents. Other technologies expected to debut on the F15 X5 include a pedestrian airbag system and the iDrive Touch Controller System.

The new X5 is expected to weigh less than the current X5 and ride on a modified version of the F10 5 series chassis and continue being produced in BMW’s Spartanburg, South Carolina plant.

Production starts this summer, so expect the new X5 to bow at either the Geneva show next week or the NY auto show in late March. We will print pricing information as soon as it becomes available.

The ordering guide shows that colors, trims, leather, and wheels options (and options/packages) that will be available. Also seen is the introduction of different “Lines” for the X5 – the “Luxury Line” and the “xLine”.
