| | 2015 BMW X6M and X5M Revealed Ahead of Los Angeles Auto Show
BMW’s new X5 M and X6 M performance SUVs based on the latest-generation X5 and X6 are finally here, revealed in full ahead of their official debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show in a month’s time. These ultimate power packed high end Crossovers from the German company are propelled by same 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8 engine having tuned with 3.6 percent more power and whooping 10 percent additional torque delivering 567 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, or about 12 hp and 53 lb-ft of torque more than the outgoing models produced. That peak torque, by the way, is produced from as low as 2,200 rpm, helping the vehicles accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds flat (with launch control activated). Like most BMWs, top speed is limited to 155 mph. The suspension has been worked to provide stability around the corners and the BMW xDrive all wheel drive is standard, but with a rear-biased torque split unique to these M variants. The system employs an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch to allow fully variable distribution of drive between the front and rear axles—from 100 percent at the rear to up to 100 percent at the front.
The stock wheels are 21-inch light alloys, which come wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires measuring 285/35 up front and 325/30 in the rear, and the brakes are vented steel discs with massive six-piston calipers up front and a single-piston set at the rear.
The X6M and X5M come with a choice of two new and exclusive paint finishes known as Long Beach Blue Metallic and Donington Gray Metallic.
