The BMW X6 was a hit the second it appeared on the roads. This was back in 2008, and it’s been a big favorite of BMW fans and buyers ever since. The very next year, BMW discovered how to give the X6 a nice little boost – they added in the M version. The M performance version is even better and those with that particular X6 under their hands know how to have a good time.
Of course, no one expected BMW to stop there. We’re in 2015 and the continued tweaking and enhancing of the X6 that BMW loves to do is ongoing, always surprising people with just how much power a car this size can offer up. The M package brings the X6 into a new class altogether. It’s like merging together the power of an SUV and the exhilaration of a sports car into something that looks like nothing more than an average X6. Then again, it’s not quite what it was after the M package gets into it.
From the large kidney grille, sizable air intakes, everything about the BMW X6 with the M performance additions just shouts “Drive me!” While it still can’t officially be called a BMW X Series SUV, it definitely has the get-up-and-go that an SUV uses, all while remaining streamlined and skipping out on the boxy look that many SUVs end up showing off. The M additions mean everything from carbon fiber to stainless steel pedals, a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 with 567 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque.
There are dozens of added controls that make sure this X6 stays in full domination, well and balanced at all times. From dry braking function to cornering brake control, stability control to adaptive drive, and much, much more, you never once have to worry about anything feeling unwieldy.
Test one out for yourself at Braman BMW West Palm Beach and you’ll soon realize what sets the X6 M apart from other BMWs out there.
