The BMW XM is the first pure M model since the M1. Instead of a mid-engine supercar, the new one is a big SUV with a hybrid-assisted V8. If this is your thing then the configurator is now available to build your ideal example. For each available option, the most expensive available is $168,395.
the xm starts at $159,995 after the $995 determination fee. There is only one trim level. There are seven exterior colors available, and all are complimentary options. They are: Carbon Black Metallic, Black Sapphire Metallic, Mineral White Metallic, Marina Bay Blue Metallic, Dravit Gray Metallic, Toronto Red Metallic, and Cape York Green Metallic.
There are also four wheels to choose from, and choosing one doesn’t affect the price of the XM. A 22-inch, five-spoke design is available with performance or high-performance tires. A 23-inch size has seven thick spokes with pentagonal holes in them, and buyers can choose either an aluminum or Nightgold finish.
Inside, XM customers can choose four merino leather colors. Black is the only free option. There’s a mix of Sakhir Orange and Black for $1,500. A combination of Silverstone white and vintage coffee brown retails for $2,500. Deep Lagoon Teal and Vintage Coffee are also $2,500.
A few options are available. At $3,400, the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System is the most expensive and adds Diamond Dome tweeters, fully active amplification channels, and QuantumLogic Surround/Dynamic Sound Equalizing. The “M Driver’s Package” costs $2,500 and increases the limited top speed to 168 mph (270 kilometers per hour) from the standard 155 mph (250 km/h). It also includes a one-day course at the BMW Performance Center.
There are three free options available. The exterior trim in Nightgold metallic can accentuate the kidney grille, the upper part of the windows, along the doors and the rear diffuser. Customers also have a choice of red or blue brake calipers.
All examples of the XM use the S68 twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 and have an electric motor integrated with the eight-speed automatic transmission. The result is a total output of 644 hp (480 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm). Despite boasting a curb weight of 2,750 kilograms (6,062 pounds), the SUV accelerates to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 4.1 seconds.
