2023 BMW XM is an ultimate beast

BMW has an illustrious history of producing world-class cars that deliver incredible performance, innovative features, and offer high-level luxury. However, the German automaker only released one model built from the ground up over the past 50 years: the M1. However, there will now be a second new model with the 2023 BMW XM high-performance SUV.

Performance specifications remain unconfirmed, but rumors have suggested the model will be offered with three different powertrains including two plug-in hybrid variants. One of them could have a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, an electric motor and a roughly 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. In the X5 xDrive45e, this allows for a combined output of 389 hp (290 kW / 394 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque.

As amazing as the powertrain sounds, what everyone will really be talking about is the XM's styling. The XM is based on the huge three-row X7, but it has a lower roofline similar to that of the Lamborghini Urus and only has two rows of seats. I wouldn't necessarily call it a coupe as the rear hatch is still fairly upright, but it definitely has a sportier and sleeker profile and more interesting proportions. To give a bit of a sense of scale the wheels are 23 inches, and even then they look a little small from certain angles.
