Debuting in 2009 as the high-performance version of BMW’s quirky crossover, the X6 M was the immediate power punch befitting of the exotic sport design. Donning special sport suspension, 4-wheel ventilated brakes and 20-inch light alloy wheels, the 2012 BMW X6 M enforces strong European road presence. Propelled by a 547 horsepower version of BMW’s TwinPower 4.4 liter V-8 engine, the 2012 X6 M 501 pounds-feet of torque is guided through an M Sport 6-speed automatic transmission. Despite the 2012 BMW X6 M’s utility quality 4,894 pounds of curb weight, the horsepower production delivered through an xDrive all-wheel drive system sends the vehicle from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.7 seconds. Adaptive Xenon headlamps, Hill Descent Control, Dynamic Cruise Control and Brake Energy Generation are significant standard features found on the 2012 BMW X6 M crossover. Inside the performance crossover vehicle’s cabin, the 2012 BMW X6 M’s brushed aluminum trim comes with 14-way power front seats and rear privacy glass. Taking four occupants along for the ride since introduction in 2009, the 2012 BMW X6 M now adds an optional 5-passenger capacity.Read more Read less

Premiering in 2009 and marketed as a 'Sport Activity Coupe', the X6 is based on the X5 and adeptly combines the sportiness of a coupe with the practicality of an SUV. Quick for its size and height, the X6 offers impressive cornering due to a nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution, wide tires and BMW's Dynamic Performance Control all-wheel drive system.
