The M Sport package provides clues as to what the dedicated M version of the new X6 will look like. It features a handful of aerodynamic enhancements including a more aggressive front apron, new side skirts and a rear diffuser insert. It also adds a matte aluminum finish for the grille, wheel arches that match the body color and 19-inch light alloys. Another performance upgrade is Adaptive M suspension. Inside, there are sports seats with leather and Alcantara trim, a sports steering wheel, and M badging.

Combined with xDrive all-wheel drive, the potent diesel engine will rocket the X6 M50d from 0-62 mph in just over 5.0 seconds and see it easily reach its governed top speed of 155 mph.
The 2015 BMW X6 reaches showrooms later this year, with X6 sDrive35i, X6 xDrive35i, and X6 xDrive50i models available at launch. While the U.S. misses out on the X6 M50d, we should receive an X6 xDrive35d diesel model at some point.
