BMW X5M and X6M April 2011

Joy Does Not Like To Be Confined

München, (PresseBox) - With the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M, you can experience M fascination for the first time in four-wheel-drive BMW X models. Innovative technologies including a newly developed high-efficiency M TwinPower Turbo engine with 555hp, a fast-shifting M Sport automatic transmission and M-specific chassis and drive control systems such as Adaptive Drive and xDrive with Dynamic Performance Control deliver an unprecedented driving experience.


It is one of the most coveted car badges of all: the M logo. Every vehicle that carries it represents a pure expression of our values: seemingly never-ending acceleration across the entire rev range, thrilling agility and outstanding tracking stability through every bend. The BMW X5 M and the BMW X6 M champion the classic M characteristic driving dynamics, introducing M tuning into a new model range. M now sets the benchmark in this class too.


A world premiere sits under the bonnet of the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M. For the first time, the M-typical linear power curve meets the formidable thrust of twin turbocharging - in BMW's most powerful production engine, the M TwinPower Turbo. This high-performance V8 engine delivers maximum torque of 680Nm and an output of 555hp to power both vehicles from 0-62mph in only 4.7 seconds.
