Article: The New BMW X5 M And X6 M Set New Performance Benchmarks

Known for setting new benchmarks, BMW is introducing two powerful and dynamically capable models, the BMW X5 M and X6 M in a four-wheel drive package. As the first xDrive cars, both models take BMW into a new territory, while their twin-turbocharged 555hp V8 engine makes them the most powerful road-going M cars BMW has ever launched.

The 4,395cc twin turbocharged V8 engine produces 555hp at 6,000 rpm. Its prodigious performance includes acceleration from 0 to 62mph in just 4.7 seconds on par with the highly acclaimed BMW M3. Courtesy of its twin-scroll twin-turbo technology, the BMW X5 and X6 has the flexibility of a diesel-powered engine producing a peak torque of 680Nm from 1,500 rpm to 5,650 rpm.

Both the models are equipped with 6-speed M Sport Automatic transmission, Dynamic Performance Control and xDrive 4-wheel drive system which suits such high performance vehicles.

The customers can fine tune the car for greater enjoyment. The Head-Up Display, Electronic Damper Control, Dynamic Stability Control setting and Servotronic steering system can all be configured by the customer. The driver can tailor the car’s characteristics with a single press of a button on the steering wheel using the M Drive Manager system. With this feature, even while riding on the day to day comfort mode the driver can have the sport setting on standby. All these systems are co-ordinated by the highly advanced electronic Integrated Chassis Management system.

Rolling off the BMW conveyors on the 24th October 2009, both the cars will be available with two-zone air-conditioning, MP3 music storage, Multimedia Navigation system and emergency assist functions, as standard.
