BMW USA has released pricing for the 2013 BMW X5 M and X6 M facelift models but has not made an official announcement yet according to BMWblog.com.
Both LCI - Life Cycle Impulse (aka facelift) models hit the market in the spring with a price of $88,850 for the X5 M and $91,900 for the X6 M - an increase of approximately $1,600 for both models compared to the 2012 model year.
As previously reported, the 2013 models look almost identical the outgoing 2012 except the LCI has a revised grille, new LED-infused headlights and taillights with LED light bar. Full LED headlights are optional for $1,900. M light alloy wheels can be specified at no additional charge and M brake calipers in blue color is now standard. There are also minor changes to the interior with a new choice in leather upholstery: Mugello Red Full Merino Leather.
Power remains the same at 555 PS (408 kW / 547 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine. Transmission is a six-speed M Sport automatic for the all-wheel drive system. 0-100 km/h takes 4.7 seconds; top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
The BMW X6 M and X5 M LCIs will make their public premieres at the New York Auto Show in April.
