As an M version, the off-road vehicles are given a new engine: a 4.4-liter V8 petrol engine with 441 kW / 600 hp in the basic configuration. In the Competition models, the same engine produces 460 kW / 625 PS.
With up to 750 Nm torque, it accelerates the two large off-road vehicles from 0 to 100 km / h in the best case in 3.8 seconds. The top speed is between 250 and 290 km / h. BMW specifies the standard consumption in the cheapest version with 12.5 liters and the CO2 emissions with 284 g / km.
In addition to the engine, the all-wheel drive was modified and designed to be more rear-heavy. The suspension, steering and brakes have also been re-tuned. There is also a clearly sharpened design and expanded equipment including sports seats.
