Ahead of official premieres at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, BMW M has unveiled the next X5 and X6 models.

Performance, engines

The BMW X5 M is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine shared with a new M8. It delivers 600 hp and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque.

The SUV accelerates from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds. A more potent Competition model uses the same 4.4-liter mill, that develops up to 625 hp and enables a faster acceleration.

This engine also powers the BMW X6 M. In this car, acceleration 0-62 mph takes 3.8 seconds.

The top speed of both models electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h). It lifts to 180 mph (290 km/h) with an optional M Driver’s Package.

An 8-speed automatic gearbox transmits power to a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system (BMW’s xDrive).

Unlike in the standard X5 and X6, the M models’ chassis and suspension are uprated for better performance. The M cars feature special setups and driving modes. They have the front 21-inch lightweight alloy wheels and the 22-inch rear ones.

M-specific elements can be found everywhere inside and outside: M-buttons, interior trims with M logos, M-specific displays of a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, M-marked exterior details (a roof spoiler, in particular).

Both models received a muscular body and an aggressive makeover to remind us that they are M Performance developments.
