It goes without saying that it’s astonishing how quickly the market has blossomed for luxury performance SUVs. What was once a niche market of vehicles that seemed too zany to catch on rapidly transformed into one of the automotive industry’s most competitive and lively segments, full of excellent vehicles that pose an interesting challenge for manufacturers: which is to not only combine luxury, style, and comfort with hot-blooded performance but also to add SUV practicality to the mix. The fierce competition that the segment has seen has forced manufacturers all over the world to put their best foot forward when it comes to their luxury performance SUVs, and the X5M and X6M from BMW aren’t exceptions.
For the 2024 model year, both of these iconic models have been updated, and are now only offered as Competition models. What this means is that the 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engines in both boast 553 lb/ft of torque and 617 horsepower. From a standstill, both will reach 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, a blistering number for any SUV. 48v mild hybrid technology is also introduced to both models, and other futuristic tech in the X5M and X6M includes the BMW Curved Display and more. Luxury is, of course, a given with the new BMW X5M and X6M, and equipped as standard are things like a leather dashboard, Harman Kardon sound system, carbon fiber trim, 21 and 22-inch wheels, and more. In an automotive market full of amazing luxury performance SUVs, the new BMW X5M Competition and the BMW X6M Competition have the stuff to stand out.
