2024 BMW X5 M And X6 M Make Official Video Debut

BMW has unveiled the 2024 X5 M and X6 M Competition models, both now only available in Competition trim with a redesigned V8 engine that utilizes 48V mild-hybrid technology.

These modifications increase power output to 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, giving the X5 M and X6 M faster 0-60 times as well as an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph or 177 mph with the M Driver's Package.

The X5 M

For SUV enthusiasts who crave the spaciousness of a big SUV but also require durability, the X5 M is an ideal option. Its powerful 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine puts 600 horsepower and 553 pounds of torque at your command in just 3.5 seconds, taking you from zero to 60 mph in no time!

For even greater speed and power, the Competition package offers 17 horsepower extra and some additional engine torque. It also includes larger-diameter rear wheels and tires, a more aggressive exhaust system, exclusive Track mode, as well as additional leather upholstery for ultimate luxury.

The X5 M Competition stands out with its reshaped front end, more chiseled sheet metal design and crisp exterior lighting elements. Inside the model gets new trim as well as a dual-display for instruments and infotainment that replaces the standard 12.3-inch units.

BMW has also equipped the X5 M and X6 M with additional standard safety technology, such as an M-specific version of iDrive. Additionally, BMW says it has made switching between driving modes that activate various assistive and safety systems easier while deactivating them when you want to focus on steering and handling.

Both models now feature a 48-volt mild hybrid system for their V-8 engines. This marks the first time BMW's M lineup has adopted this technology, which will also be featured in other BMW models such as the 2023 X7 SUV and 7 Series sedan.

The BMW X5 M and X6 use a mild hybrid powertrain in both models that combines a 4.4 liter turbocharged V-8 that produces 617 horsepower with an electric motor, 48-volt battery, and eight-speed automatic transmission. The M-specific transmission has been optimized for acceleration; drivers can select either maximum traction in Sport mode or extra agility in Track mode.

Next month, the BMW X5 M and X6 M make their official video debut at Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. Here you can get your firsthand impression of these vehicles to decide if they're suitable for you.

The X6 M

The 2024 BMW X6 M is the top-of-the-line version of their popular SUV range, and they've just unveiled their official video debut. Redesigned with a new engine and eight-speed transmission that use mild hybrid tech, thin headlights with black kidney grille, as well as an upgraded interior featuring a curved center display and M-specific driver assistance systems, this high-performance model stands tall among competitors.

The X6 M is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and 48-volt mild hybrid system that generates 617 horsepower. It also features Dynamic Performance Control (DPC) chassis control system which uses electronically controlled motors to deliver torque to the rear axle, helping regulate traction and correct over- and understeer.

In addition to the new engine, the X6 M boasts an all-new eight-speed M Steptronic gearbox with shorter ratios for the first three cogs. Additionally, it includes a cast aluminum oil pan with cooling fins designed to help keep the transmission running smoothly.

This model also features an M Sport exhaust system with quad-exhaust tips finished in black, as well as a unique lip spoiler and large air intakes on its front fascia.

The 2024 BMW X6 M Competition offers an extended array of standard features, such as the upgraded iDrive touchscreen with curved center display, new carbon shift paddles and additional safety equipment. Plus, it comes equipped with M-specific driving aids like Remote Control Parking and Manoeuvre Assistant for added peace of mind on long journeys.

Overall, the new X6 M is an impressive package that blends high-octane driving dynamics with a luxurious interior. Unfortunately, it lacks quite as much cargo capacity as its bigger sibling and its coupe-like styling won't hold up well on rough roads.

For anyone seeking an SUV that exudes style and power, the 2024 X6 M is an excellent option. Available now at your local dealership, its price tag may be slightly higher than the base model but it comes packed with impressive features.

The M3 Touring

BMW's M division has been hard at work updating their X5 M and X6 M models for 2024. The X5 M gets an aesthetic upgrade, while the X6 M gains access to BMW's light hybrid system upgrade.

First and foremost, the X5 M and X6 M now boast slimmer headlights with black kidney grille horizontal slats. Furthermore, their taillights now feature an "X" theme.

BMW's X5 M and X6 M feature a dual-display design inside their vehicles that displays both instruments and infotainment. A 12.3-inch cluster faces the driver, while an 14.9-inch touchscreen serves both front passengers.

Standard on this vehicle is the new Adaptive M Suspension system, featuring rear dampers that use electromagnetic valves to adjust stiffness in milliseconds. There are also new thrust arms and tunnel bridge at the rear as well as revised toe-in values designed to enhance stability at higher speeds.

These updates come in addition to the light 48-volt hybrid system introduced last year to the X5 M and X6 models. According to BMW, both cars can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

That's faster than BMW's M3 sedan's 3.5-second speed record, but not quite there yet. Even close to that speed is only the 3.4 seconds claimed for their M4 coupe and sedan models with twin turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engines making 503 hp each.

With such power, BMW fans would surely be eager to get their hands on one of these incredible SUVs. After all, they boast the most powerful M-badged SUVs ever produced!

To celebrate the 2024 model year, BMW has released an official video debut of their X5 M and X6 models. The clip showcases an X5 M finished in Isle of Man Green and an X6 M finished in Individual Frozen Pure Grey.

Compare the X5 M and X6 on aesthetics, performance, and technology. Although these vehicles are essentially coupe versions of their regular siblings, there's still enough difference to make them stand out from competitors.

The M3 GTS

BMW's top SUVs make their official video debut for the first time ever in 2024 with M-badged models featuring a fresh new look, enhanced digital features and an optional mild hybrid system in addition to their V8 twin-turbo powertrain.

The 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine is now combined with a 48-volt mild hybrid system, producing 12 horsepower (9 kilowatts) and 147 pound-feet of torque - enough to propel both models from zero to 60 in just 3.7 seconds, with top speeds limited to 155 mph for the standard X5 M Competition and 177 mph for X6 M Competition models.

It's now equipped with a seven-speed M DKG Drivelogic gearbox with an aggressive shift pattern. Its shorter ratios for the first three cogs increase acceleration from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) by almost half a second, and its cast aluminum oil pan features cooling fins and increased fluid capacity for improved oil flow.

The M3 GTS has been designed with a stiffer rear axle support and coilover suspension to meet racing demands. Its dampers can be independently variable in traction and compression travel, its brakes have been upgraded for maximum power, and its height has been lowered for improved handling.

The BMW M3 GTS is an all-wheel-drive model that weighs 136 kg (300 lb) less than its regular M3 counterpart. This weight reduction is achieved through lighter centre console and door panels, polycarbonate side and rear windows, as well as the absence of seats in the back compartment.

It also makes moving easier, as the driver has a wider than normal track and plenty of visibility thanks to front and rear spoilers.

BMW's updated models all feature a curved dual-display setup for instruments and infotainment, along with carbon fiber trim throughout and red accents on the shifter and start button.

It's still a stylish SUV, but the M version looks even bolder than before. From vertical slats in the lower grille to horizontal ones in the kidneys and that one-sided filler panel, its front end boasts plenty of visual interest.
