Under the skin, both the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M sport the new M TwinPowerTurbo engine, the most powerful production engine made by BMW. When it comes to horsepower, The BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M are unprecedented in this market. This new M engine is the world’s first with a pulse-tuned exhaust manifold that encompasses both rows of cylinders combined with high-performance twin-scroll twin turbo technology.

There is no competition. With an industry-leading 555 hp and a 500 lb-ft torque spread from 1500 to 5650 rpm, you will be launched from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. This enormous amount of power is delivered to the wheels via a 6-speed M sport automatic transmission. It also includes manual paddle shifting that reduces torque through the momentary deactivation of individual cylinders, giving you even more control. As your foot presses down on the accelerator, you will feel the guttural roar from the exhaust and a wave of torque will hit you like a ton of bricks. There is no other way to describe this performance powerhouse.

It is all M. With the help of BMW’s intelligent xDrive all-wheel-drive system and the Dynamic Performance Control system, all this power and performance is smoothly controlled and unmatched driverfeedback is channelled through the new M Servotronic steering, Adaptive Drive Suspension and a massive high-performance braking system, which features giantfour-piston fixed callipers atthe front with floating callipers atthe rear. Internally-vented lightweight brake discs rotors measure 15.6 inches in diameter at front and 15.2 inches at rear.

All these features combine to deliver an exceptionally authentic BMW driving experience: incredible handling, supreme ride quality and stability, as well as performance that others can only dream about. The versatility that comes with a Sports ActivityVehicle or Sports Activity Coupe is simply the icing on the cake. The BMW X5 M and X6 M both share the unique combination of performance and luxurythatyou’ve come to expect with a BMW M series. As a result, there are not many options that are not standard. For those of us that cannot live withoutthe exclusive BMW Executive Package, it may be added when you order.

Indulge yourself with soft close doors, a rear view camera with Top View that provides additional imaging ofthe rear and sides of the vehicle in the control display, a Pearl Leather instrument panel, a Heads-up display with M-Specific colour display that includes a gear indicator and revolution display and of course the exquisite BMW Individual Audio System with Dirac Live™ that features SIRIUS satellite radio. Of course, it is difficult to be completely objective when it comes to a new BMWvehicle butwhen you experience this new addition to the M family, you will understand whyI am so excited aboutthese vehicles. BMW’s success is rooted in their abilityto make their products number 1.

Issues such as cost, production or a shift in the economy do not waiver BMW’s commitmentto produce the ultimate vehicle. The BMW X5 M and X6 M are perfect examples: they meld technology and design combining it with the exquisite fit and finish holding true to BMW’s authenticity and M legacy.
