A few weeks ago, the facelifted 2015 BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M were unveiled. Now official details from the ordering guide have been released with the extensive options list now fully available.
First and foremost, two different packages for the new X5 M and X6 M duo will be offered. The first is the Driver Assistance Plus Package which costs $1900 and consists of Active Blind Spot Detection, Active Driving Assistant, side and top cameras as well as speed limit alerts. Customers can also opt for the Executive Package which will set them back $4500.
The Executive Package includes a heated steering wheel, window shades as standard, ventilated and heated seats, soft-close automatic doors, a head-up display complete with options for concierge services as well as adaptive full LED headlights with automatic high beams.
Elsewhere, the 2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M can be outfitted with a Bang & Olufsen sound system costing $3700, rear TV screens ($1700) as well as a Night Vision system complete with pedestrian protection for $2300.
Prior to the car’s debuting, it was rumoured that they’d utilise exactly the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine as the outgoing models in the same tune. However, the 2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M deliver an extra 12 hp and 53 lb-ft of additional torque resulting in final figures of 567 hp and 553 lb-ft at a very low 2200 rpm. When it is all said and done, both the new BMW X5 M and X6 M sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a brisk 4.2 seconds when using the potent launch control system. That is entry-level supercar levels of acceleration.
The power and grace of the 2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M models are worthy opponents to their Mercedes rivals… Eventually in time, the upgraded pages will not cost so much money…
