The new 2015 BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M will have their world premiere at the 2014 LA Auto Show. Even though known for its “green car” auto show reputation, the Staples Center in Los Angeles will welcome BMW’s top SUVs.
Earlier this year, we learned that the upcoming 2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M will use an upgraded version of the already powerful S63Tü V8 twin-turbo engine from the F10 BMW M5. We initially heard that the new engine will produce certainly more than 560 horsepower but recent reports put the actual output value close to 600 horsepower.
The F85 X5 M and X6 M will launch in Spring 2015 and comes with large air intakes, wider bodykit, rear diffuser and blue calipers M brakes. At the rear end, the two brothers features the typical quad exhaust pipes. The typical front end from the X5 and X6 – headlights flowing into the 3D kidney grille – will also be seen on the M versions.
The standard sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is expected to be completed, for both models and thanks to all-wheel drive, in less than five seconds. Top speed is limited to 250 km / h from the factory but the M Driver’s Package will raise it to 275 km / h.
