Video: BMW releases X6 M testing video

At a time where SUVs are facing sluggish sales and hatred from treehuggers all over the world, BMW is not slowing down development on its SACs or SAVs (or whatever the German automaker wants to call SUVs). Just days after it released the video of the BMW X5 M, BMW today dropped footage of the X6 M.

Unlike the X5 M video, BMW actually provides some technical specs here. We learn that the BMW X6 M will carry a “V8 M turbo engine with twin-scroll turbo chargers” and will of course feature all-wheel-drive. While the chassis of the X6 M is equal to the base X6, it will be more rear-concentrated – meaning it should drive like a rear-wheel-drive vehicle.

The BMW X6 xDrive50i, the range-topper of the X6 lineup, is powered by a 4.4L turbo charged V8 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. We’re guessing BMW will beef it up for a total of 450 or 500-hp. No word on when the X5 M and the X6 M will make their world debut.
