Recently, the latest additions to the M GmbH family, both the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M were officially released, allowing BMW to venture into the high performance, high ground clearance vehicle segment, a segment which was, till now, dominated by the Porsche Cayenne. According to BimmerFile, it now has the juicy pricing details for both the twin-turbo SUV’s.
The slightly modest looking BMW X5 M can be fetched for US$ 85,400, while the ‘coupe-ish’ X6 M carries a US$ 88,900 price tag (yes, only US$ 3,000 difference). The above mentioned prices should be for the base-line models, as you can expect them to hike up a little as you add more ticks on the options list.
Both all wheel drive performance SUV’s are powered by the M TwinPower Turbo engine, which is a 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 that is able to crank out 555HP between 5,750rpm to 6,000rpm and 680Nm of torque between 1,500rpm to 5,650rpm. Both cars can sprint to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, all the way up to a governed top speed of 250 km/h.
