The new BMW X5 M combines the features of the successful BMW X family – exclusivity, robustness, agility and everyday usability – with the commitment to high performance that defines an M car. Powered by a newly developed 4.4-liter V8 M engine, the BMW X5 delivers 575 hp at 6,000 to 6,500 rpm.
The new M TwinPower Turbo engine for the BMW X5 M is the most powerful unit ever developed by BMW for an all-wheel-drive vehicle. The engine features a closed-deck crankcase with an extremely rigid construction. This enables higher cylinder pressures to be achieved, paving the way for improved power output. The rapid gear changes and instantaneous response to load flux highlight the innovative technology behind this turbocharged engine.
The outstanding efficiency of the new M TwinPower Turbo engine is illustrated by its fuel consumption and emissions: 25.5 mpg and 258 g/km CO2. This represents an improvement of more than 20 percent when compared to its predecessor. The range of the BMW X5 M on a single tank of fuel has increased by 26 percent to 475 miles.
BMW xDrive intelligent all wheel-drive plays a key role in the outstanding dynamics of the new BMW X5. The xDrive system uses an electronically controlled clutch to allow a distribution of drive between front and rear axles-from 100 percent at the rear to up to 100 percent at the front. This ensures the best possible traction in all road conditions.
With powerful looks and exclusive equipment, the new BMW X5 M is the next chapter of BMW’s success story.
