The X6 M 2023, with its distinctive and uncommon form, boasts an impressive 600 horsepower from its ferocious twin-turbo V8 engine. This powerhouse glides through the roads, thanks to its rear-oriented all-wheel drive that distributes the power with unmatched efficiency. The driving experience in this masterpiece from M-Power is a chic affair, elevating you to new heights of luxury. The interior, designed with precision and detail, is a high-tech haven of indulgence, featuring an array of lavish standard equipment and impeccable fit and finish, offering an unparalleled driving experience.
The X6 M’s summer tires grip the road with fierce determination, but their unwavering grip translates to a firmer, more intense ride compared to its standard X6 counterpart. But BMW doesn’t shy away from excitement, turning the volume all the way up with the optional Competition package. This package delivers a breathtaking 17 horsepower boost, a deafening M-Sports exhaust, and sports seats that provide an even higher level of thrill. The X6 M is a mid-size luxury SUV that’s not afraid to leave a lasting impression.
The sleek, sloping rear line of the BMW X6 M has inspired other SUVs such as the Porsche Cayenne Coupé and the Mercedes-AMG GLE-Class to put style first. Instead of prioritizing maximum storage space in the back, these vehicles are a testament to the beauty of form over function.
What’s new for 2023?
The 2023 BMW X6 M remains a force to be reckoned with, with its sleek, coupe-like silhouette and bold stance. Despite rumors of major overhauls, the German automaker has chosen to keep the X6 M mostly unchanged, maintaining its luxurious and performance-driven ethos.
While some may argue that the X6 M’s impractical design commands a higher price tag, we believe that the real value lies in the Competition package. With a powerful 617 horsepower engine, and a host of upgraded features, the X6 M Competition is a true driver’s machine. From the sporty exhaust to the exclusive track mode, every detail has been designed to enhance your driving experience. And with 22-inch rear wheels, a premium leather interior, and center console knee pads, the X6 M Competition is a truly opulent ride.
So, while the 2023 BMW X6 M may not be making any major changes, it’s still a vehicle that demands attention and commands respect. And with the Competition package, it offers an unparalleled driving experience that will leave you yearning for more.

The X6 M roars to life with the pulse-pounding engine from the BMW M5 sedan – a beastly 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V8. With a standard output of 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, this powerhouse is a force to be reckoned with. But wait, there’s more! Upgrade to the Competition package and unlock an even more impressive 617 horses. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, delivering a smooth and seamless ride to the dynamic all-wheel drive system. Get ready to conquer the road with the X6 M’s raw power.
Unleash the full potential of your ride with the X6 M’s dynamic powertrain. Choose between an all-wheel drive for superior traction or a rear-wheel drive for a thrilling driving experience.

Plus, adjust your brake pedal feedback to your personal preference for the ultimate driving experience.
The BMW X6 M Competition is a magnificent machine, boasting a sleek design and dynamic features. It’s equipped with adaptive dampers and a stylish set of 21-inch rims, but for those who crave more, an upgrade to the impressive 22-inchers can be added to the rear.
We had the privilege of experiencing the X6 M Competition and were blown away by its lightning-fast acceleration and unwavering grip on the curves. The strong and dependable brakes only added to the thrill of the ride. The car glided smoothly on the freeway, but the large wheels and stiff springs resulted in a slightly bumpy experience on rougher roads.
Fuel consumption and MPG in practice
With a mesmerizing 13mpg in the city and a thrilling 18mpg on the highway, the X6 M truly puts the “M” in “magnificent.” Matching its sibling, the X5 M, in fuel efficiency, this Bimmer is a true powerhouse. Unfortunately, we were unable to test this beauty on our rigorous 75-mph Highway Fuel Economy route. But fear not, curious adventurers!

Interior, comfort, and cargo

The heated rear seats ensure everyone stays cozy, no matter where they sit.
Organize your essentials in style with the concealable compartment under the center console and the convenient center console storage. Though the sleek coupe-like profile looks stylish, it may hinder your view and limit your cargo space. The X5 M boasts 34 cubic meters of storage space, while the X6 M has a slightly smaller 27 cubic meters. However, the X6 M’s design remains unrivaled in the realm of sporty luxury.
infotainment and connectivity
