According to Autocar, BMW will rollout high-performance versions of its X5 and X6 SUVs by the end of next year. BMW recently introduced a new version of its X5 and an updated X6 is expected to debut this August at the Moscow Motor Show.
Like the current generation X5 M and X6 M, the next iteration of the SUVs will use a 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8, but power levels are expected to grow from today’s 555 horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque. Despite that bump in power, look for improved economy figures.
On the styling front, the X5 M and X6 M should adopt a few more distinctive M design cues to help differentiate them from lesser models.
