Ahead of its official unveil tomorrow, the new 2015 BMW X5 M and 2015 BMW X6 M made their public debut in a private event in West Hollywood, CA.
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.
