A member of Germancarforum put together an impressive table showcasing the technical specs of all the German performance SUVs. The comparison includes the new BMW X5 M and X6 M, the base models X5 and X6, Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG and Porsche Cayenne Turbo 958. 3,200 horsepower between these six performance SUVs and an impressive 4,300 Nm of torque. The sprint times are equally impressive, raging from 4.2 seconds to 4.8, considering all these SUVs are on the heavy side. Until real life test drives are available, let’s have a look at the official specs of these cars:

Yesterday, the new BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M made their world debut. New generation of BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M continue with the next chapter in this successful story ensuring the drivers once again experience these cars in the best way possible. The two M-brothers provide the well-known dynamic capabilities, distinctive and aggressive design and for the first time, outstanding efficiency wrapped up in a high-performance outstanding package. Both cars are powered by a reworked M TwinPower Turbo engine, a V8 that provides more power and torque, and better power delivery. All of this is wrapped up with an emotionally rich soundtrack, thanks to quad exhaust pipes found on both vehicles.

The peak output of the new M turbocharged engine is 567 hp, three percent higher than that of its predecessor and is available between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. At the same time, the engine’s peak torque has been boosted by around 10 percent to 553 lb-ft, which can be enjoyed across an extremely broad rev band – from 2,200 to 5,000 rpm. The extraordinary power development of this M turbocharged engine allows the new M versions of the BMW X5 and BMW X6 to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4.0 seconds. The top speed of both is electronically limited to 155 mph.
