The BMW X6 M was the first (along with the X5 M) four wheel drive BMW model to undergo the "M" performance treatment.

The 2010 BMW X6 M is powered by a newly-developed 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine which produces 555 hp at 6,000 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque from 1500 to 5,650 rpm.

Featured for the first time on a BMW M model, the 6-speed M Sports Automatic transmission enhances the high-performance character of the BMW X6 M through its instantaneous response, direct connection to the engine, and a high degree of shifting comfort. The new M Sports Automatic is commanded by an electronic selector on the center console and offers the driver not only the Drive mode, but also Sport and M Manual modes for absolute control of gear selection. Aluminum pull-style paddles on the steering wheel exclusive to BMW M allow manual shifting (Right for upshifts, Left for downshifts).

In developing the X6 M, engineers at BMW M pushed the capabilities of BMW's intelligent xDrive all-wheel-drive system and the Dynamic Performance Control system to manage the power and performance potential of these two new vehicles. The special M suspension includes Adaptive Drive and newly-developed Servotronic power steering. This system provides variable steering assistance geared to the road speed of the vehicle. This allows the driver to negotiate parking maneuvers with lower effort while preserving exact feedback and the highest standard of steering precision at higher speeds.

Visual clues as to the potential of the BMW X6 M include special gills in the front fenders, as well as unique 20-inch light-alloy wheels, quad exhaust tips, rear diffuser and body colored side skirts.

The BMW X6 M is also equipped with an electrohydraulic parking brake which features the Autohold (Auto H) function. Auto H is a convenience feature that holds the vehicle in position as soon as it comes to a stop at an intersection or in stop-and-go traffic, without requiring the driver to hold constant pressure on the brake pedal. As soon as the driver touches the accelerator again, the brake is instantly released.
