The two performance models are almost identical, using the same 4.4 liter V8 engine, capable of delivering 5705 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. With such power under the hood and a eight speed automatic transmission, the BMW X5 M and X6 M can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds, a great performance for cars that weight more than two tones each.

This performance makes the SUV`s 0.1 seconds slower than a BMW M4, the performance coupe that replaced the old BMW M3 Coupe. Fuel consumption and emissions are down 20 percent, with an average emissions rate of 258 g/km.
