and X6 M: Official Details and Video!

no denying that purists have a field day trashing two SUVs that have BMW#8217;s M line-up. The fact they both debuted like this probably that BMW considers the X5 and X6 internally to be two bodystyles of the same car, the E90 and E92.

In any case, the reason two siblings exist is because of the ML AMG and the Turbo. People buy them. the new BMW X5 M and the BMW X6 M carry many firsts for the M

First off is the fact that are the first set of all-wheel drive M They are also the first to be with a torque converter transmission. They are the first M to use run-flat tyres (even the M3 uses regular tyres).

And they#8217;re also the first to a twin-turbocharged V8.

BMW calls the engine the hood the M TwinPower Turbo It#8217;s a 4.4 litre V8 (likely from the xDrive50i engine) produces 555 horsepower between to 6,000rpm and 680Nm of torque 1,500rpm to 5,650rpm, thanks to 1.5 of boost. There#8217;s no official on the engine code yet but it being S63B44 should be likely? the non-M N63B44, it features the two turbos in the middle of the V bank.

the X6 M and X5 M are EU5-compliant.

The M engine has its own specific cooling designed to sustain the higher levels. The water reservoir is in the V-bank to reduce the amount of and weight of the system. There is a radiator, and an additional electrical pump with an after-run for the turbocharger bearing mounts so continue to be cooled after off the engine.

The engine also has its own M and camshafts. Compression ratio has dropped from 10.0:1 to

0 to 100km/h takes only 4.7 and this applies for both of the The car goes up to 250km/h but this is limited. If you buy the M Driver#8217;s Package you get an 25km/h of top speed.

The engines sip only 13.9 per 100km in the EU cycle, and puts out of CO2 emissions.

The transmission is called the M Automatic transmission and is likely by ZF, like all its other automatic It has a special aluminum oil sump a finned structure for M usage. are swappable either by letting the do its own thing or via aluminum paddle on the steering wheel #8211; for down and right for up. The transmission can cancel out fuel injection and to achieve extremely short times.

There is also a control mode that can be in the M Mode.

BMW uses a specific M system that switches two control maps. Low speeds use one which increases steering this allow comfortable while there is another map provides better feedback at speeds. The sporty map can also be up using the EDC or M Drive button.

A system called Integrated Management controls various functions such as xDrive drive, Dynamic Performance Dynamic Stability Control, Drive and even the above Servotronic system. The suspension a double wishbone design electronically adjustable dampers, and the shocks use air suspension with The X5 and X6 M are 10mm lower compared to the models.

Of course being an SUV will be people using two M cars for towing so the X5 gets a with an electrically swivelling head, while the X6 gets an towbar with a removable head. The max trailer load is 3

Other than the fact these are M SUVs, there is WTF that springs to my mind for one, look at the interior. The seats barely have any support, and even the M-Sport (which aren#8217;t really M have this in cars the 1-er and 3-er.

Is this car not to go very much sideways?
