The latest versions of the X5 M & X6 M have been announced.

BMW X5 M Competition

BMW M GmbH gas unveiled the third generation of its high-performance executive Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) models. The allure of the new BMW X5 M and new BMW X6 M - and the BMW X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M Competition models set to be launched alongside them in April 2020 - resides not only in their flamboyant design and luxurious character, but most notably also in class-leading dynamism, agility and precision. At the heart of their sublime powertrain / chassis composition is the latest incarnation of the high-revving V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology developed by BMW M GmbH. The eight-cylinder unit boasts two turbochargers with indirect charge air cooling, a cross-bank exhaust manifold, direct petrol injection and VALVETRONIC variable valve timing, enabling it to deliver maximum output of 441 kW/600 hp in the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M and 460 kW/625 hp in the Competition models.

The 4.4-litre V8 works in tandem with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, a version of the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system specially tuned for these models and the Active M Differential, delivering superlative propulsive power over any terrain and revealing signature M performance combined with X model versatility. The new BMW X5 M and new BMW X6 M both accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and they reach 200 km/h (124 mph) in 13.7 and 13.5 seconds respectively. The new BMW X5 M Competition races to 100 km/h (62 mph) from rest in 3.8 seconds and to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 13.4 seconds. The new BMW X6 M Competition, meanwhile, stops the clock at 3.8 seconds and 13.2 seconds for the same two sprints. All models have an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), which increases to 290 km/h (180 mph) if the optional M Driver's Package is selected.

New BMW X5 M and X6 M gain 616bhp Competition variants

BMW reveals the third-generation X5 M and X6 M ahead of their LA motor show debut, with the UK to receive only the Competition models

BMW M has revealed the third generation of its performance SUV flagships, the X5 M and coupé-styled X6 M, with both available in Competition form for the first time.

Detailed ahead of their public debut at November's LA motor show, both are set for a market launch commencing in April next year. A spokesperson has confirmed that the UK will only be able to order the Competition variants, priced from £110,610 for the X5 M and £113,310 for the X6 M.

They will rival the Porsche Cayenne and Cayenne Coupé in Turbo forms, and are both powered by BMW M's now familiar twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8. The standard X5 M and X6 M put out 592bhp, which is 25bhp more than both outgoing models. However, in keeping with the tradition set first by the latest M5, the Competition models boost this output to 616bhp. Torque is pegged at 553lb ft in all variants.

The motor in both is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox with all-wheel drive and an Active M differential, said to help deliver the power through the wheels over any terrain. BMW claims super-stiff engine mountings boost response and refinement, while the engine oil supply system has been designed to cope with extensive track use.

The result is a 0-62mph time quoted at 3.9sec for both cars, and a 0-124mph time of 13.7sec for the X5 M and 13.5sec for the X6 M. The Competition models drop the 0-62mph sprint down to 3.8sec, while the 0-124mph sprint is 13.4sec for the X5 M and 13.2sec for the X6 M.

All models hit the same 155mph limiter unless you spec the optional M Driver's Package, which raises the top speed to 180mph. Conversely, BMW quotes between 21.7mpg and 22.6mpg, depending on model and spec, with CO2 figures ranging from 284-296g/km.

Competition Spec V8 for BMW X5 M and X6 M

The vehicles which revolutionized BMW’s M-Division are now in their third-generation.

If you desire M5 performance with the ability to occasionally drive on gravel, BMW has released the specifications of its latest X5- and X6 M. When BMW launched its first M-Division SUVs a decade ago, they became the first high-performance BMWs to feature automatic transmissions, all-wheel drive and turbocharging.

Hot V8 delivers Competition grade performance
The most significant changes apply to these M-Divisions SUVs and their mechanical bits. Powering both versions is BMW’s 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. With its turbocharger nestled inside the engine’s vee-architecture, and featuring a cross-bank manifold, air- and gasflow efficiency is very good.

BMW will be offering the X5 and X6 M in two output options. The standard engine boosts 441 kW and for those who seek even more potency, there will be a Competition version, good for 460 kW. Both engines peak similar torque numbers, at 750 Nm, and these engines will spin to 7200rpm, despite their complicated turbocharging systems.

BMW X5 M and X6 M debut with up to 460kW

BMW has unleashed its new-generation X5 M and X6 M beastly crossovers in both standard and Competition forms. As you might have expected, they follow the same performance script as the latest M5 equivalents, just in a high-riding format for those to whom towering above traffic is more important than corner-gobbling dynamics.

All four versions inherit the BMW M Division’s latest 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbo petrol, paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox with steering-mounted paddles. If you choose the standard flavour then 441kW is at your disposal at 6000rpm, while the Competition versions give you 460kW, with a maximum torque figure of 750Nm quoted for both.

Against the clock, the former will get you from 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds, BMW says, while the Comp models take 3.8 secs to do their thing. Top speeds are limited to 250km/h in all cases, unless you order the optional M Driver’s Package, which then allows 290km/h.

It appears as though only the Competition models will be offered in South Africa, with first deliveries expected in May 2020.

An M-tuned xDrive all-wheel-drive system gets the torque to all four wheels, while an Active M Differential splits it between the back wheels as needed. Although it is a fully variable, rear-biased all-wheel-drive system, there is no mention of a rear-wheel-drive Drift Mode as there is in the M5, which is probably a good thing in this case, but BMW says the 4WD Sport mode does allow “controlled drifts”.

BMW reveals new X5 M and X6 M together with Competition models!

BMW knows a thing or two about creating a performance SUV and the new X5 M and X6 M have arrived to drive this point home.

Plus, BMW says the hotter X5 M Competition and X6 M Competition derivatives are scheduled to arrive on South African shores in May 2020.

Under the bonnet you’ll find the German automaker’s 4,4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine delivering 441 kW and 750 N.m in the standard variants, while gaining an additional 19 kW in the Competition models.

BMW claims the X5 M Competition complet a 0-100 km/h dash in just 3,9 seconds, while the X6 M Competition will reach the three-figure marker from standstill a tenth of a second sooner. Power is sent to all four corners via BMW’s rear-wheel-biased M xDrive all-wheel-drive system. A standard active M differential optimises traction and enhances the dynamic capabilities of both these performance-based SUVs.

The German carmaker says extensive measures have been taken to increase the torsional stiffness of the body structure. The dynamism of these performance SUVs is further enhances with an M-specific adaptive suspension (with electronically controlled dampers), active roll stabilisation, M Servotronic steering and DSC. M mode offers two driving settings (road and sport) in non-Competition models, while a track mode is added in the two more focused derivatives.

BMW M Performace Parts Available For New X6 M And X5 M

These additional body parts are made by hand carbon fibre and sealed with a clear finish for a greater visual impact.

You will find these parts almost everywhere, from the kidney grille up front to the rear diffuser, while the side sill inserts are also made from CFRP. For the X5 M, there is a slick-looking roof edge spoiler giving the car a more sporty profile.

RE: Title.

It really sounded like the MyBB competitions were upping their game. :(
