the quad-turbo BMW M550d xDrive

the quad-turbo BMW M550d xDrive 1And yes, we did say quad-turbocharged. You’ll remember the old M550d, and its X5 and X6 sisters, used a triple-turbocharged six-cylinder diesel engine. Very few folks clambered out of those cars thinking ‘hmm, bit sluggish, isn’t it?’ In fact, the word ‘overkill’ came to mind, for us.

The M550d is back for 2017, and this time, it has four (!) turbochargers pushing air into a 3.0-liter diesel straight-six. The engine now makes 400 horsepower and 560 lb.-ft. of torque, and sends all that twist through an eight-speed automatic transmission, and a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system.

And of course the M550d comes with the full range of 5 Series driver aids, including active lane change warning, active cruise control and remote parking, as well as the latest version of BMW Connected, that links your phone, tablet and even your smart watch to the car and the internet, reading your daily movement patterns until it knows you better than your secretary does.

It is perfect for the executive who wants power and utility without being too showy, which is what people who did a lot of cocaine in the 1980s also said about BMWs back then.
