2014 LA Auto Show: 2016 BMW X5 M and X6 M

BMW has been producing X model vehicles for fifteen years now. The X was originally used to designate an all-wheel drive BMW, but starting with the X5 in 1999, the German manufacturer envisioned something different for the letter. Rather than building a regular SUV, they decided to create a line of vehicles that were as agile as they were versatile. More than three million sold models later, what many considered a risk has paid off. Now, every third BMW registered is an X model. It’s difficult to imagine a world without Sports Activity Vehicles.

At the Los Angeles Auto Show, the latest addition to this story of success is also the most powerful. The 2016 BMW X5 M adapts the latest updates to the X5 model and adds in M performance power. It packs a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 567 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, and reportedly reaches 60 miles-per-hour in only four seconds. Not bad for a car weighing in at greater than five thousand pounds.

Alongside the X5 M is the 2016 X6 M, which shares the same powertrain. It adds a rear spoiler, and both models are equipped with the signature quad tailpipes and exclusive M light alloy wheels to distinguish them as peak performance vehicles.
