BMW’s top management were hosting the event where journalists and special guests from around the world came to see the second generation of the most powerful SUVs ever built.
The new M TwinPower Turbo engine for the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M is the most powerful unit ever developed by BMW for an all-wheel-drive vehicle. Boasting innovative M TwinPower Turbo technology with a pair of TwinScroll turbochargers, cross-bank exhaust manifolds, VALVETRONIC and High Precision Direct Petrol Injection, the 4.4-litre V8 produces maximum output of 423 kW/575 hp between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. That represents a four percent increase over the predecessor models.
Peak torque has been boosted by 70 Nm (52 lb-ft), which equates to a rise of 10 percent for a total of 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) between 2,200 and 5,000 rpm.
The 2015 BMW X5 M will be offered at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $99,650 and the 2015 BMW X6 M will start at $103,050, including $950 Destination and Handling.
