BMW is electrifying the performance variant of its midsize crossovers.
The 2024 BMW X5 M and X6 M crossovers will be offered exclusively as Competition models — with a new V-8 engine with 48-volt mild hybrid technology, exterior design updates and the latest generation of BMW's iDrive control system.
The freshened M models will debut at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance in March, with output starting in April at BMW's factory in Spartanburg, S.C. Deliveries begin in the summer.
The 2024 X5 M Competition begins at $142,000 and the sporty X6 M Competition starts at $145,000. Prices do not include shipping because BMW Canada allows its retailers to set their own delivery charges, based on a multitude of factors.
The X5 crossover is BMW's workhorse and bestseller in Canad and the United States. The German luxury automaker delivered 6,067 X5s in Canada in 2022 and 82,372 in the U.S. last year.
