This 2023 XM is the most powerful BMW SUV to date. BMW continues to wow us with their designs and there is no going back. By “wow” I don’t mean “wow, beautiful”! Its either you love or hate the way it looks. In my opinion, it looks great! Only thing I do not like is the night gold metallic exterior trim which reminds me of the early 2000’s SUV’s.
This plug-in hybrid 2023 BMW XM has an 8-speed automatic transmission which is mated to a 4.4L twin-turbo V8 producing 483hp and 479lb-ft of torque. The electric motor adds and additional 194hp and 207lb-ft of torque. Together they generate a maximum of 644hp! 0-100km/62mph is done in about 4.1 seconds. All Wheel Drive is standard for the BMW XM. Drivers have the option of Hybrid, Electric, and e-control mode.
The XM comes standard with 22-inch wheels but there is an option for 23-inch alloys. The interior of the 2023 XM resembles the interior of the X7 and other BMW SUV’s. It is simple but a very high end feel with all the expensive materials used throughout the cabin. The seats come standard in merino leather and you have different color options to choose from. The dash and door panels come with Nappa leather trims. The 2023 XM comes standard with the BMW Iconic Sounds Electric which is a special sound design inside the SUV before beginning your drive. Another thing that makes this 2023 XM exciting on the inside is the illuminated sculptural roof liner. The color selection can be changed to set the driving mode and atmosphere. I’d say the interior makes up for how it looks on the outside.
Pricing for the 2023 BMW XM starts at around $160,000 USD with the XM Red label starting at over $185,000 USD and is expected to go on sale late 2023.
