We’ve heard that BMW will introduce its all-new 2015 X5 M (F85) next month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, but nothing is official as of today. Still, we’ve managed to find out more about this upcoming model. According to company insiders, the 2015 BMW X5 (F85) will be available with a new colour called Long Beach Blue, the same colour of the X4 Concept unveiled at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show.
And the new X5 M will not be the only high-performance M model to get this new colour as the upcoming M2 and X6 M (F86) will also receive it.
As expected, the BMW X5 (F85) will also arrive with a new design featuring new M components such as a front bumper with big air intakes, redesigned side skirts as well as a brand new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and quad exhaust pipes.
Under the hood, we expect to see the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine (S63TU) delivering around 560 hp.
The current BMW X5 M model is powered by the same 4.4-liter V8 engine, which delivers 555 hp at 6,000 rpm and 500 lb-ft (680 Nm) of torque from 1,500 to 5,650 rpm. With these numbers, the vehicle accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h.
