All new, the 2010 BMW X6M is a luxury sports SUV based on the standard X6 but with a lot more power under the hood. A 4.4L V8 benefits from the aid of twin turbochargers to produces 555 hp and 501 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters is the only available transmission. The power is put to the ground via BMW's AWD system.
