Exploits maximum forces and supreme driving dynamics as efficiently as possible: the xDrive technology in the BMW X6 M distributes 555 hp of driving force flexibly over all four wheels, thus ensuring optimum traction and the typical M driving sensation in all weather conditions.
Sensors in the DSC chassis control system detect the first signs of a loss in traction on one or more of the wheels, e.g. on a slippery carriageway. The power distribution is shifted instantly to match the road conditions so that the wheels with the highest traction each receive the optimum driving power. Higher tracking stability and safe driving characteristics at all times and in all weather conditions are the result.
Under normal conditions, the BMW xDrive specially tuned to the BMW X6 M distributes the drive power to the front and rear axles in a 40:60 ratio. This conscious focus in design on the rear of the vehicle means that the torque is directed considerably later and more deliberately to the front axle. The result is that the BMW X6 M remains agile and nimble in maintaining close contact with the road – without in any way diminishing that special sensation of the rear-wheel drive.
