Check out the 2020 BMW X5 M and X6 M. This is the first look at the more powerful variation of the X5 M and X6 M. BMW has released pricing on the M division, with the X5 starting at $106,095 and X6 at $109,595.

This will be the third-generation of BMW’s M SUVs. It has a more powerful standard twin-turbo 4.4L V8 with 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission, and an M xDrive AWD system. M xDrive sends all of its power rearward until extra traction is required. After it senses more traction is needed, it will shuffle power to the front axle. Another standard feature is active sport differential. For additional power, the Competition pack upgrade delivers 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Opting for the M Driver’s package to get a top speed of 177 miles per hour. 

The automaker says it will offer a number of AWD modes available, including an AWD Sport setting. All models get BMW’s “Adaptive M suspension Professional with Active Roll Stabilization.” Both the X5 M and X6 M models use electronically controlled dampers to help control body roll and allow the driver adjust the ride and handling preferences through different modes. 

Other optional upgrades include the adjustable brake feel from the M8, extra bracing to increase chassis rigidity, and staggered wheel setup with 21-inch rollers up front and 22-inch wheels in the rear. The new generation super X5 M and X6 M are lower, heavier, and slightly wider than previous models. All models get BMW’s Live Cockpit and iDrive 7 standard on 12.3-inch displays. One of the displays is in the center console, and the other is in the instrument cluster. They will all also come with a head-up display, and options to personalize the instrument panel and HUD display information. Competition pack cars have a “track” setting designated to use on closed circuits.
