2019 BMW X5 M Renderings Look Pretty Convincing

Shortly after the fourth generation BMW X5 broke cover, we were also treated to its range-topping version, the X5 M. Unfortunately, it’s nothing official.

Notice the reworked front bumper with carbon fiber apron, blacked-out kidney grille, updated side skirts, and more carbon fiber used on the side mirror casings and roof. At the rear, Aksyonov Nikita imagined the high-performance model with a mean diffuser and double tailpipes smaller than the ones used in the xDrive30d flavor.

The rest of the vehicle’s body was adorned with M specific decals and, as a final touch, the SUV gets a new set of rims.

Despite having a larger footprint than the outgoing model, the all-new BMW X5 M will be a tad lighter. The CLAR architecture and other work carried beneath the skin will improve its handling, while the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine will allow it to challenge other high-end SUVs, such as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

It’s been said that the upcoming BMW X5 M will have as much as 600PS (592hp / 442kW) available via the right pedal. Thus, it should be able to sprint to 100km/h (62mph), from a standstill, in less than 4 seconds.

An exact reveal date for the all-new BMW X5 M has yet to be announced. Still, we could be looking at an official presentation later this year, and the 2018 Paris Auto Show, which kicks off at the beginning of October, might be the ideal place for the unveiling.
