2020 BMW X5 M and X6 M pricing announced

BMW’s new X5 M and X6 M rivals for the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S and Porsche Cayenne Turbo are soon to arrive in Australia.

BMW AUSTRALIA HAS announced pricing and specifications for its brutish Bavarian duo the X5 M and X6 M, which will land in showrooms this May carrying an increase in price, power and specification over their predecessors.

Arriving on the new third-generation X5/6 platform, both will be sold in Australia exclusively in Competition spec which includes added M Performance parts and an uprated engine.

Underneath the bonnet is a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing 460kW and 750Nm through an eight-speed automatic transmission, an increase of 37kW and 70Nm over the previous generation vehicles. Driving BMW’s latest all-wheel drive xDrive system, power can be shuffled from the front to rear wheels, providing up to 100 per cent torque on the rear axle alone. Acceleration is a fast 3.8 seconds from a standing start to 100km/h.
