BMW M division has not forgotten about the X3 M and X4 M‘s bigger brothers. Oh no, quite the opposite, in fact. It is a lot of trickery, honing, and ensure that they deliver to M ‘ s promise. It seems, by you, at least on paper.

2020 BMW X5 M and X6 M were revealed on Tuesday with the kind of specifications we have come to expect from the German brand’s go-fast division. Let’s start with what the two Bavarian monsters: the engine. Under the hood is a well-known twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 sits, but there is more force this time. The mill has 600 HP and 553 pound-feet of torque, and if you not counting at home, that’s 33 more horsepower than the outgoing models.

the driver more room to play with the torque, since the full torque range of 1,090 U / min more. The maximum torque comes in at 5,690 U / min.

I Have mentioned already, there are competing models? Oh, Yes, there are competitive models. Both the X5 M remains the competition and X6 M competitors continue to dial things in with 617 HP, but torque is the same at 553 pound-feet. No matter whether it is the default M, or Competition version, an eight-speed automatic transmission funnel M xDrive all-wheel-drive system makes. As the current M5 sedan introduced, there is a rear is a stressed system, but the power goes to all four wheels, if necessary.

Stomp on the accelerator to show a 0-to-60-mph time of 3.8 seconds for the X5 M and X6 M, and it drops to 3.7 seconds for M competing models. Keep you planted the throttle and the SUV is up to 155 mph; an optional M Driver’s Package, the cap raises to 177 mph.

There is no hiding the fact that X5 and X6 are great vehicles. However, BMW M division swept both of them away to various locations for the suspension and chassis tuning, you keep light on your feet. BMW said agility is for both SUV’s cornerstone. Whether it should be in the South of France or the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the X5 M and X6 M, just as appealing on a winding road, such as it is, push hard on the track.

as you can see, each of them look like a M-friendly BMW X5 and X6. Not that it’s a bad thing. The typical changes are present, with a larger grille, rear spoiler and fender flares. Easy to the power to distinguish stronger competition models, you get black exterior accents.

Peering amongst the SUVs,’ brawny, shows a front wheel suspension, which has a double-wishbone setup with forged upper wishbone, while the rear sports a five-link design. A larger piece of the agility locks into place with the M adaptive suspension with active roll stabilization standard for all four models. The system swallows every bit of data from steering wheel movements, movement of the body and the road surface actively adjust damping and stabilization. Standard on all models, the 21-inch wheels, although a staggered setup is available. It is a no-cost option for the competition models.

On the X5 M and X6 M models, Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus provide various behavioral changes. Competitive SUVs get a Track setting, specifically for race tracks, obviously.

Take a seat inside a cabin, which should be familiar to anyone who sat in the last M car. The new BMW (and controversial) measuring instruments are front-and-center, which is located on a 12.3-inch digital display. Another 12.3-inch display sits in the middle for the infotainment needs, and the latest iDrive system is running. A head-up display can also widget areas for things such as tire temperature and load pressure.

M badge are in abundance in the interior with splashes of red-on-the Merino leather interior. For the competition models, they Merino leather interior get a full. Carbon fiber breaks down the leather in spots, and tri-color M stitching adorns the steering wheel for good measure. A suite of active safety gear is also on Board for safekeeping, while the more advanced systems such as adaptive cruise control are part of an optional package.

Check the X5-M-competition and the price increases to $115,095. For the more rakish X6 M, it’s $109,595 costs, while the competition version rings in at $118,595.
