The refreshed 2024 BMW X5 and X6 were announced in early February 2023. This time, the M Competition variants of the SUVs get the spotlight with updated features and a hybrid assist powertrain.
Like the standard 2024 BMW X5 and X6, the updated M Competition models feature new, slimmed-down headlights, black kidney grilles, and new exterior paint schemes that include Brooklyn Gray metallic, Isle of Man Green metallic, and Frozen Pure Gray metallic.
The interior also gets a few updates that include the BMW combined Curved Display that has a 12.3-inch information screen and a 14.9-inch control monitor, carbon-fiber trim cabin, Fineline Black or Silver Ash Root Open Pore wood options, ambient light strips with crystal patterns, and standard carbon fiber trim on both models.
The X5 and X6 M Competition variants will still use a 617 hp 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 553 lb-ft of torque, but it will now come with a 48-volt mild-hybrid assistance. A 12 hp electric motor is integrated into the 8-speed automatic transmission, giving the engine 147 lb-ft of torque. The cars are clocked to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, with a stock top speed limited to 155 mph, but raised to 177 mph for the M Driver’s Package.
BMW will start production of the 2024 BMW X5 and X6 M Competition models in April after its debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. The X5 is expected to have a starting price tag of $123,295 with a $995 destination fee, while the X6 M is likely to go for $128,195.
