The German manufacturer has unveiled the second-generation X5 M Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV).

The new BMW X5 M has been designed for use on the road. This elite Sport machine combines the raised seating position of an all-wheel-drive BMW X model with the overall concept balance of a BMW M vehicle. In order to visually reinforce the further improved on-road attributes of the new M model, the whole body is painted the same color. In combination with a 10-millimeter reduction in ride height and the wider track created by the use of mixed-size tires, the vehicle has a lower, more powerful stance, cut an even sportier figure even when stationary, and as a result enjoys a very distinct personality when compared with its BMW X5 sibling.

The 2015 BMW X5 M will be offered at a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $99,650, including $950 Destination and Handling. It will arrive in US showrooms in the Spring of 2015.

Athletic Looks

The new BMW X5 M features an athletic, muscular looks betraying its high-performance credentials before it so much as turns a wheel. The four large air intakes and flaps at the front end, and the diffuser at the rear, are fully functional, they are an essential part of the engineers' drive to optimize aerodynamics and ensure efficient cooling.

The rear end of the BMW X5 M differs significantly from its standard sibling, exuding a stronger aura and majoring on bold, sporty accents. This approach is underlined in particular by the wide rear tires (which are a different size from the fronts), the distinctive M rear aprons painted in body color and the hallmark M four-tailpipe exhaust.

New M TwinPower Turbo Engine

The peak output of the new M turbocharged engine powering the BMW X5 M is, at 567 hp, three percent higher than that of its predecessor and is available between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. At the same time, the engine's peak torque has been boosted by around 10 percent to 553 lb-ft, which can be enjoyed across an extremely broad rev band - from 2,200 to 5,000 rpm. The power development of this M turbocharged engine allows the new M version to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4 seconds. The top speed of both is electronically limited to 155 mph.

The outstanding efficiency of the new M TwinPower Turbo engine is illustrated by its 20 percent lower fuel consumption and emissions in the in the European cycle (official EPA values will be available closer to the start of sales) compared to its predecessor. All of which means that the range of the two vehicles on a single, identically sized tank of fuel has increased by 26 percent to 475 miles) in each case (European cycle).
