Meet The M550d xDrive

Meet The M550d xDriveThis has helped it become the most powerful six-cylinder diesel engine in the world. The quad-turbo 3.0-liter straight-six makes 395 horsepower at 4,400 rpm – equaling the E39 M5’s V8 – and 560 lb-ft of torque from just 2,000 rpm, which is a fair chunk more than the 501 lb-ft generated by the outgoing M5. BMW says 332 lb-ft of that is also available from 1,000 rpm.

Two low pressure turbos replace the previous large-sized third turbo and are permanently powered while the car is in motion. A second high-pressure turbo joins the party when the engine exceeds 2,500 rpm.

Like its gasoline twin, the diesel monster gets an M sports suspension as standard and that drops the ride height by 10 millimeters (0.4 inches). Exclusive 19-inch M alloy wheels are part of the deal as well, as are the M brakes, a subtle aerodynamic kit, and Integral Active Steering, which is BMW’s fancy way of saying rear-wheel steering.
