New BMW X5M and X6M

We are living in a world where SUVs boast 0-60 sprint times that would be considered supercar levels of acceleration merely a decade ago. For context, a 2009 Ferrari F430 can go from a dead stop to 60 mph (about 100 km/h) in about 3.9 seconds. The 2019 X5M and X6M does that in 3.7 seconds in the top of the line Competition package.

BMW just announced two new additions to their lineup, the X5M and the X6M powered by 4.4 liters of twin turbo oomph. If that power plant seems familiar, that’s because it is. Ripped straight out of the supercar killing family sedan, or as BMW calls it, the M5, the engine can propel you to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h, or 285 km/h if you get the M Drivers package with 600 horsepower on tap. Let that sink in.

There’s also a Competition package available on top of the “regular” 600 horsepower version that bumps up the power even more. All that could be yours today for a cool $105,100 USD for the X5M, and $108,600 USD for the X6M. We can only imagine the prices after they go through Bangladesh’s ridiculous tax levels, should anyone dare to import them here. Unfortunately Executive Motors, the local BMW dealership, will not be importing any.

Should you choose to purchase the M Drivers package, BMW will offer you a complimentary training course in one of their training facilities to get yourself familiar with all that new found power.
