Article by Christian A., on October 30, 2014

The new MY2015 BMW X6 M will be available to purchase at a starting price of $103,050 (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price). The tag already includes $950 in Destination and Handling. This piece of high-performance mobile machine is part of the latest salvo of offerings from BMW M GmbH.

The other one is the BMW X5 M, which will have a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $99,650, including $950 Destination and Handling. Both the BMW X6 M and the BMW X5 M are included in BMW M’s strategy to continue setting the pace in the high-performance Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) segment.

The two new models make it obvious that BMW M is pulling no punches in terms of its commitment to offer to high performance vehicles. Likewise, the BMW X6 M and its sibling still don the typical characteristics of the BMW X family – exclusivity, robustness, agility and everyday usability.

The BMW X6 M in particular is putting up impressive performance numbers. It could accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds on the way to reach an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). It is powered by a new 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbo V8, which is regarded as the most powerful engine BMW has ever developed for an all-wheel-drive vehicle.

Thanks to innovations like the M TwinPower Turbo technology -- TwinScroll turbochargers, cross-bank exhaust manifolds, VALVETRONIC and High Precision Direct Injection -- the M TwinPower Turbo V8 could produce up to 567 hp of output between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm – around 3 percent better than previous models.

The engine could also churn out peak torque of up to 553 lb-ft (10-percent increase) available at between 2,200 and 5,000 rpm. Power is not the only thing outstanding with the BMW X6 M.

Its fuel consumption in the European cycle was lowered by 20 percent while carbon dioxide emissions were also cut by more than 20 percent to 258 g/km. The M TwinPower Turbo V8 is mated to a new eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. The power and consumption specs are also the same for the BMW X5 M.
