While BMW has done a considerable amount of work over the last several years building electric and hybrid vehicles, the 2020 BMW X5 M proves that designers aren’t ignoring the types of vehicles that originally made BMW a forerunner among high-performance luxury auto brands. Put simply, the 2020 BMW X5 M shows the automaker’s commitment to performance, and it does it in the shape of a midsized crossover.

2020 BMW X5 M Details

The 2020 version of the BMW X5 builds upon the 2019 model overhaul, and while the 2020 BMW X5 M looks a lot like its non-M counterparts, the performance upgrades in this model make it clear just how different it is once the driver presses the gas a little. The 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine is the heart of a drivetrain that can generate as much as 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, both of which are elite numbers for this segment and more than enough to put the road at a driver’s mercy. Those are seriously powerful numbers.

Performance Features

Other performance features like a lowered suspension, quad exhaust tips, and larger wheels give it a slightly sportier appearance while also serving as further enhancements for the way the crossovers sticks to the road. An eight-speed automatic ZF transmission and M xDrive all-wheel drive system further enhance the performance.

All of this is a fancy way of saying that this crossover can go fast, and it can get to those top speeds incredibly quickly.
