2021 BMW X3 Driving on Highway


The 2022 BMW X3 configurations offer luxe interiors, advanced safety features, and top-tier performance capabilities. When equipped with the optional BMW towing hitch, the 2022 BMW X3 towing capacity maxes out at 4,000 pounds. This is plenty of power to tow a lightweight aluminum boat on weekend camping outside of Smithtown or haul dirt bikes and ATVs for off-roading excursions in Westbury. While all of the X3 trim levels can achieve this impressive towing capacity–with the optional hitch–, you’ll still have to decide between available drivetrains and powertrains.
