BMW has announced the pricing details on its two latest additions – the 2010 BMW X6 M and the 2010 BMW X5 M. The 2010 BMW X6 M will have a starting price tag of $88,900 while the 2010 X5 M will start at $85,400.
Both M edition SUVs are powered by a 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 producing 555-hp with a maximum torque of 500 lb-ft. That allows the X6 M and the X5 to go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. Both models feature an M tuned version of Dynamic Performance Control combined with xDrive, large intakes, a rear diffuser with quad tailpipes, M side grille and 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the X6 M and the X5 M get M sport seats, an M shifter, steering wheels with paddle shifting, red needle gauges and Merino Leather.
We’ve all been wondering who is actually going to buy these high-performance behemoths. BMW says it expects most buyers to upgrade from an M5 or M6. Additionally BMW expects potential customers who have previously owned an AMG or Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV in the past.
Sales will begin later this fall. Orders will begin later next month.
