BMW M550d & X6 M50d performance specs leaked - rumors

According to a recent report, the BMW X6 M50d will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds.

New details are starting to emerge about the BMW X6 M50d and M550d xDrive.

First up, the X6 M50d is expected to go into production in April with a tri-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that develops 381 PS (280 kW / 375 hp) and 740 Nm (546 lb-ft) of torque - 40 Nm (30 lb-ft) more than originally speculated. This could enable the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds which is just 0.2 seconds slower than the standard X6 M.

The report also indicates the M550d xDrive will use the same engine and accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds. In terms of efficiency, the sedan is expected to average 6.3 L/100 km (37.3 mpg US / 44.8 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 165 g/km. If everything pans out, it will roll off the assembly line in March and be offered exclusively in Europe.
