The 2020 BMW X3 might be a compact SUV, but it’s still capable of powering exciting East Greenwich and Providence adventures! When properly equipped, the BMW X3 can tow up to 4,400 pounds! That’s more than enough to pull a small camper or boat out to your favorite getaway.

Explore the engines and towing features that make the BMW X3 so capable! Then, visit BMW of Warwick to experience its power in person.

BMW X3 Performance

With an optional trailer hitch, every BMW X3 configuration can tow the maximum weight of 4,400 pounds. With the standard I4, your choice between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive will not impact your capacities. However, opting for the available twin-turbocharged V6 will net you more horsepower, more torque, and a higher maximum payload.

If you’re getting ready to move heavy cargo, here’s what you should know about all three BMW X3 configurations:

  • 2020 BMW X3 sDrive30i 2.0L TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder
    • 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque
    • Rear Wheel Drive
    • Maximum Payload Capacity of 893 pounds
    • Curb Weight of 3,931 pounds
  • 2020 BMW X3 xDrive30i 2.0L TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder
    • 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque
    • BMW xDrive all-wheel drive
    • Maximum Payload of 893 pounds
    • Curb weight of 4,401 pounds
  • 2020 BMW X3 M40i 3.0L M Performance TwinPower Turbo V6
    • 382 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque
    • BMW xDrive all-wheel drive
    • Maximum Payload of 915 pounds
    • Curb weight of 4,317 pounds

Don’t feel like hooking up a trailer? The X3 dimensions provide plenty of room for cargo, with 28.7 cubic feet behind the 2nd row of seats. Fold them flat, and you’ll have 62.7 cubic feet to play around with. Think you might need even more space and towing power? Check out the BMW X7 towing capacity or pit the X5 vs. Audi Q7 to learn more about your options.

BMW X3 Towing Features

While the BMW X3 engine options give you the power you’ll need to tow heavy loads, they’re not the only factors that make this SUV so popular with the Cranston region’s adventurers! You’ll receive much more in exchange for the BMW X3 price.

BMW has designed every X3 with advanced safety and stability technologies that make major jobs feel like a walk in the park. Here are just a few of the standard and available BMW towing features:

  • Dynamic Traction Control
  • Dynamic Stability Control, including Brake Fade Compensation, Start-off Assistant, Brake Drying, and Brake Stand-by features
  • Servetronic power steering assist
  • Rear-view camera
  • Available Descent Control
  • Available Rear Park Distance Control

If you’re considering a pre-owned model, you’ll need an example of what to expect! The 2015 BMW X3 28d towing capacity tops out at 3,500 pounds, like most older pre-owned X3 SUVs in our inventory.
