The 2024 BMW X5 M Sports Activity Vehicle and 2024 X6 M Sports Activity Coupe represent a new era of high-performance vehicles from BMW M GmbH. These models showcase dynamic flair, a powerful presence, and modern luxury that define their character. The BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M will now be exclusively offered as Competition models, equipped with the latest-generation iDrive control/operation system, complete with the BMW Curved Display and BMW Operating System 8.

What’s more, the new BMW X5 M Competition and new BMW X6 M Competition will feature a new V8 engine with 48V mild-hybrid technology, delivering a maximum output of 617 hp. These models represent the first high-performance vehicles from BMW M GmbH to feature 48V technology. The electric motor, complete with power electronics, is integrated into the compact housing of the 8-speed M Steptronic transmission, delivering up to 12 hp of output and 147 lb-ft of torque. This enhances the boost provided by the V8 engine, taking the performance for which M cars are renowned to an even more compelling level.

The new V8 engine in the 2024 BMW X5 M Competition and X6 M Competition is optimized for power delivery and increased efficiency compared to its predecessor. It produces peak torque of 553 lb-ft between 1,800 and 5,800 rpm, generating a maximum output of 617 hp at 6,000 rpm. These models accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph, or 177 mph with the optional M Driver’s Package.

The new S68 4.4-liter V8 engine features a cross-bank exhaust manifold, a reinforced crankshaft drive, and further developed turbocharging with an electrically controlled blow-off valve. Additionally, it boasts a new air intake duct, a new vane-type oil pump, and a weight-optimized plastic oil sump. These features produce a willingness to rev and seamless power delivery, providing suitably dramatic sounds from the standard M Sport exhaust system, which features dual-branch pipes with large cross-sections, high-capacity silencers, electrically controlled flaps, and two pairs of tailpipes with Black Chrome finishers positioned either side of the rear apron in customary M fashion.

Overall, the new BMW X5 M Competition and new BMW X6 M Competition represent a significant step forward in high-performance vehicles. These models boast cutting-edge technology, optimized power delivery, and increased efficiency, all while providing a dynamic flair, powerful presence, and modern luxury that defines the character of BMW M vehicles. The new BMW X5 M Competition and new BMW X6 M Competition will make their public debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in March, with production beginning at BMW Group Plant Spartanburg in April.
