The 2015 BMW X6 M is having its launch party this week for the Russian market.

We recently had the chance to drive the new X6 M on the Formula track in Austin and our review can be found here.

The M SUVs come in two new colors, Long Beach Blue Metallic and Donington Grey Metallic. The typical color finishes is available as well: Mineral White Metallic, Carbon Black Metallic, Silverstone Metallic, Melbourne Red Metallic and Alpine White.

The new BMW X6 M is powered by a reworked M TwinPower Turbo engine, a V8 that provides more power and torque, and better power delivery. The peak output of the new M turbocharged engine is 567 hp, three percent higher than that of its predecessor and is available between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm.

At the same time, the engine’s peak torque has been boosted by around 10 percent to 553 lb-ft, which can be enjoyed across an extremely broad rev band – from 2,200 to 5,000 rpm. The extraordinary power development of this M turbocharged engine allows the new M version of the BMW X6 to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4.0 seconds. The top speed of both is electronically limited to 155 mph.


In the U.S., the 2015 BMW X6 M starts at $103,050, including $950 Destination and Handling.
