2023 BMW XM – Overview

The performance-oriented XM, a two-row crossover with sporty aspirations and tuning by BMW‘s renowned M division, will sit above the three-row X7 in BMW’s SUV lineup.

The XM wears an aggressive design with gaping kidney-shaped grille apertures, stacked tailpipes, and a slightly slanted roof that hints at a fastback layout, as seen here in concept form.

A 644-hp plug-in hybrid powertrain receives juice from a twin-turbocharged V-8 under the hood.

With a fully charged battery, about 30 miles of electric-only driving should be achievable, but the XM’s performance potential has grabbed our interest.

BMW XM Release Date

The BMW XM is a new vehicle that will go into production at the end of 2022 and be available in showrooms in early 2023.

2023 BMW XM Price

BMW hasn’t announced how much the XM will cost or how many trim levels it will come in, but we expect it to start at least in the six-figure range, with the most abundant models costing even more.

BMW XM Interior Design

While we believe the concept’s appearance is a close representation of what will eventually roll off the line at BMW’s South Carolina facility, we anticipate that several of the concept’s opulent interior elements will not transition to production.

For example, the geometric headliner will most likely be replaced with a cloth or a panoramic sunroof.

Although we adore the old leather upholstery and quilted velvet rear seats, we believe BMW will opt for more modest materials in the final product.

Center Console

A big, curving display runs the length of the dashboard until it reaches the passenger’s grab handle, which is connected to the centre console.

The display functions as both a digital gauge cluster and on-board infotainment, while BMW’s iDrive rotary controller is visible just to the right of the shift lever.

Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are expected to come standard, and other features like SiriusXM satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a quality sound system.

Engine Specs/Powertrains

The 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V-8 isn’t new to the BMW engine lineup, but it’ll be paired with an EV motor and a battery pack in the XM to produce a staggering 644 horsepower.

BMW claims that a 750-hp model will be added to the lineup later.

We noted the powertrain’s rapid power delivery in the prototype model in Austria.

We estimated that it should get the XM to 60 mph in around 3.5 seconds.

That comes in the same league as performance SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, which clocked 3.2 seconds from zero to 60 mph during our testing.

The XM utilizes a coil-spring suspension system enhanced by adjustable dampers and active anti-roll bars to give a surprisingly pleasant ride when set to Comfort driving mode.

The XM’s handling is responsive and eager when set on Sport, making fantastic fun on a twisting road.

Battery capacity, reach and recharging.

BMW hasn’t revealed the XM’s battery pack size, but it’s expected to provide roughly 30 miles of electric-only range each charge.

Stay tuned for more updates.
