The first BMW X6 M photos made their way onto the web a day before the official release. As promised, we’re returning with more exclusive information regarding the X6 M but also the “twin”, BMW X5 M.
Both models are powered by a tuned up 4.4 liter V8 M engine delivering 555 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque from 1,500 to 5,650 rpm. The engine uses the twin-scroll twin turbo technology with High Precision Direct Injection. BMW patented their manifold technology which improved performance.
The 6-speed M Sports Automatic transmission is featured for the first time on a BMW M vehicle. There are two other modes available beside the regular Drive, Sport and M Manual. Gears can be manually shifted through the paddles located on the M steering wheel.
Due to the M Suspension, the BMW X6 M and X5 M are sitting about 0.4 inch lower compared to the regular models. T
Both cars feature heated front M Sport seats, M steering wheel, M door sills and driver’s footrest.
They both receive the latest iDrive system with Real-Time Traffic data.
No pricing has been announced yet, but stick around, we’ll get that for you soon.
