But now BMW has managed to combine the M-specific performance with a bit more sensibleness to create a completely new vehicle, the X6 M50d. As we’ve reported in the past, this is powered by a 3.0-liter M Performance TwinPower Turbo engine that puts out 381 hp and peak torque of 740 Newton metres (546 lb-ft) of peak torque.
This allows the BMW X6 M50d to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.3 seconds. That’s just 0.6 seconds slower than the X6 M, and with more 62 Nm more torque, anything can happen in a real-world sprint.
The X6 M50d does the sensible, boring part just as well, as BMW says average fuel consumption is 7.7 liter/100 km (36.7 mpg), which is equivalent to CO2 emissions of only 204 g/km.
The car will be unveiled officially in Geneva and will be priced at €85,800 in Germany.
