2011 BMW X6 M

2011 BMW X6 M

The BMW X6 M for the first time carries over the high-performance character of those very special cars from BMW M GmbH into the segment of BMW X models.

BMW X6 M: High Performance SUV Redefined

Source: BMW | Published: Thu Aug 05, 2010

(continued from above)

The superior driving qualities of the BMW X6 M are clearly visualized by specific BMW M design. The BMW X6 M, through its design, reflects outstanding dynamism and athletic performance. Common design elements at the front of the X6 M bear clear reference to the dynamic driving potential, while within the interior a truly luxurious ambience forms a perfect symbiosis with the cockpit design so typical of a BMW M Model. The fundamental message in creating the interior design in each case is to reflect the truly outstanding dynamism of both models in superior style.

M TwinPower Turbo Engine and the M Sports Automatic Transmission

The BMW X6 M comes with a new V8 high-performance power unit boasting performance features precisely tailored to the character of the model. Displacing 4,395 cubic centimeters, the engine delivers maximum output of 555 hp from 5,750-6,000 rpm. The new M TwinPower Turbo engine is indeed the world's first power unit with a common exhaust emission manifold joining both rows of cylinders as well as Twin Scroll Twin Turbo Technology. The turbocharger and the catalytic converters are positioned in the V-section between the two rows of cylinders ensuring the spontaneous and direct response so typical of BMW M as well as a linear surge of power for a consistent flow of torque at all times. As a result, peak torque of 501 lb-ft is maintained consistently all the way from 1,500-5,650 rpm.

Over and above its superior driving dynamics, the X6 M offers by far the highest level of efficiency in its respective segments. In addition to the power unit optimized for efficiency by means of High Precision Injection, proven and newly developed BMW EfficientDynamics technologies serve to ensure this superiority in practice. These cutting-edge technologies comprise Brake Energy Regeneration as well as on-demand control of the electrical fuel pump, the detachable a/c compressor and the volume flow-controlled supply of hydraulic fluid to the anti-roll system introduced for the first time on the new BMW 7 Series. And last but not least, the car naturally complies with the LEV II emission standards.

The M Sports Automatic transmission with six gears, optimized gearshift dynamics and outstanding gearshift comfort confirms the sporting orientation of the car. The innovative torque reduction concept is achieved by briefly cancelling out fuel injection and ignition for extremely short gearshift times. The driver himself shifts gears either via an electronic gear selector lever or, if he prefers, through aluminum shift paddles on the steering wheel again specific to BMW M. At the same time he can spontaneously intervene into the gearshift process whenever he wishes by operating one of the paddles also in the D Mode. The Launch Control function for maximum acceleration, in turn, may also be activated in the M Mode, while in the Power Mode, finally, the driver may vary the engine and transmission control, using either the Sport or the Efficiency driving programs.
