BMW X5 M And X6 M Pricing Announced - Web Exclusive

On the occasion of the world debut of the BMW X5 M at the Shanghai International Auto Show, BMW has announced US retail pricing for both the X5 M and the X6 M. The X6 M was unveiled for the first time at the New York International Auto Show on April 8th.

When the X5 M and X6 M go on sale this fall as 2010 model vehicles, they will retail for $86,225 and $89,725 respectively (including $825 Destination & Handling).

Both the BMW X5 M and X6 M feature a new reverse-flow V8 engine with patented twin-turbo technology. The lag-eliminating Cylinder-bank Comprehensive Manifold (CCM) enables the engine to produce 555hp and accelerate both models from 0-60mph in 4.5sec.

At BMW M, "the chassis must always be more powerful than the engine." So the X5 M and X6 M exploit the limits of physics through their reworked Integrated Chassis Management systems to provide maximum road-holding without conceding to harsh ride characteristics.

Power is delivered through an M derivative of BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system, allowing typical M throttle-steering. At the rear axle is BMW's revolutionary Dynamic Performance Control, tailored by BMW M to ensure near-perfect distribution of power.

Four characteristic M tailpipes emerge from the aerodynamic diffuser in the rear. Enormous brakes round out the package, providing confidence under all conditions.

The modern, sustainable legacy of BMW M began in 1985 when engineers placed the race-bred inline six-cylinder engine from the M1 supercar into the production BMW 5-Series sedan, reworked the suspension and brakes, and created BMW's first M5. The M5 redefined the capabilities of a sedan with levels of power, precision and linear control never before imaginable. Ever since, the craftsmen at BMW M have been focused on finding new ways to expand the performance.
