The 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show will be one to remember. BMW will bring the Concept X5 eDrive plug-in hybrid, i8 plug-in hybrid sports car, i3 EV, X4, M4 Coupe, M6 Gran Coupe, and more to sate our enthusiasm. But what’s got us most excited at Perillo BMW is the announcement that the new BMW X5 M and X6 M will both debut at the auto show.
Why is that exciting? The X5 M and X6 M are one-of-a-kind vehicles that you can only expect from BMW. They combine the robustness, agility, and everyday use characteristics of the BMW X family with the commitment to high performance that defines the popular BMW M vehicles.
Forget Mercedes-AMG or Land Rover Special Ops—the X5/6 M come with an xDrive all-wheel-drive system, 567 ponies, 553 lb-ft of torque, a new eight-speed Steptronic transmission, and the ability to hit 60 mph from a dead start in only four seconds. That’s incredible for a car that weighs more than 5,000 pounds!
You’d think all those performance improvements would come at a cost, but no: emissions and fuel consumption are down by 20 percent on the European cycle. Don’t miss the big reveal at the auto show!
