The performance-oriented 2023 BMW XM, a two-row crossover with sporty aspirations and tuning by BMW’s renowned M division, will sit above the three-row BMW X7 in the brand’s SUV portfolio. The XM wears an aggressive design, unique grille, sloping roof, and new tailpipes. Under the hood is a 750-hp plug-in hybrid powertrain powered by a twin-turbo V8.
A completely charged battery should allow for approximately 30 miles of electric-only driving, but it’s the XM’s performance potential that has caught our curiosity the most. This SUV will hit the dealerships in the first quarter of 2023 and it will cost over $100k.
BMW XM Exterior Design
The all-new 2023 BMW XM is still in concept shape, and we have no idea where it will wind up. As far as we can tell, the XM will be distinguished from the rest of BMW’s vehicles by sharper lines that make it appear more futuristic.
The next XM features aggressive styling with a gaping kidney-shaped grille and a sloping roof. It features a more fastback shape than the other X models in the line. On the back, we saw taillights that seemed identical to the one on the BMW 8-series. It certainly appears athletic, and we dig the new stacked tailpipes. Generally, we think the styling is impressive and the new XM SUV will surely grab instant attention.
The cabin of the 2023 BMW XM will be just as appealing as that of the X7. One concept image of the next SUV is released, and it shows that the XM will be sporty, modern, and capacious. Unlike the X7 model, which has three rows of seats, the new XM will only have two rows. However, it will have the same dimensions as the X7 model, so expect better comfort for the rear occupants.
We also noticed that the concept model has a leather interior, but BMW will most likely replace it with more modest materials as a finishing touch. In terms of technology, this SUV is likely to outperform the X7 model. Anyway, the interior is both premium and futuristic. It provides an amazing panoramic sunroof, a new center console, and much more. Interestingly, BMW said the final XM product will keep around 90% of the concept’s design.
Driving Range, Acceleration
The 2023 BMW XM is a high-performance model and it will apparently feature a PHEV system in conjunction with a reliable 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. According to the most recent research, this combination would be capable of producing more than 750 horsepower. Furthermore, the XM will come with a battery pack that should provide roughly 30 miles of electric-only range.
We also anticipate that this model will come standard with xdrive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Unfortunately, battery capacity, charging time, and other hybrid specifics are not currently available. On the other hand, we know the XM SUV will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds.
2023 BMW XM Competition, Release Date
The manufacturer didn’t say how much the new model will cost. We think the 2023 BMW XM should cost around $120,000 or slightly above that. After all, it is a luxury SUV with a plug-in hybrid powertrain option. The sales will begin in the first quarter of 2023. The new XM model will rival other luxury SUVs such as Lamborghini Urus, Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, and Range Rover SVR.
