Both models generate a top performance of 423 kW from the 4.4-litre V8 engine. Both cars do 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds with the standard 8-speed M Steptronic gearbox. The maximum torque of 750 Nm produces impressive drive in the rpm range between 2,200 und 5,000 min-1. The xDrive four-wheel drive system has been set up with a rear-wheel bias, which improves the agility of the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M. The Dynamic Performance Control system seamlessly distributes the drive torque between the rear wheels. Everything is in place to allow an agile and dynamic driving style. The unmistakable sound of the M TwinPower turbo engine makes the impressive performance of both models audible, thus providing an extremely emotional driving experience. The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) also allows every driver to adapt the sportiness of their BMW X5 M or BMW X6 M to any situation and to suit their individual preferences, at the push of a button. In “DSC on” mode, the brake interventions work to prevent understeer and oversteer. “MDM” allows greater wheel slip, meaning ambitious drivers are able to perform small drifts. Deactivating DSC (“DSC off”) makes it possible to explore the limits on the racetrack, and to use the accelerator pedal to get the car drifting.
