If you look at the BMW 5-Series, we will find a big difference in the power of the M550i xDrive’s top-of-the-line M5 sports. At first engine develops 455 hp. and 650 Nm, and the second – 600 hp. and 750 Nm. However, this will change with the renewal of the “fifth” planned for 2020.
According to Motor1, the Bavarians have decided to add power to the M550i by placing the 4.4-liter V8 engine that was recently introduced on the M850i xDrive. The power of the engine will be 523 hp, which will allow the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 4 seconds.
On the M850i, the acceleration to 100 km/h from the spot takes 3.6 seconds and the maximum speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. Probably the same features from 2020 will be offered by the M550i xDrive.
Interestingly, BMW plans to put the same N63 on all its models that have the 50i in the name. This means the engine will also be available for the X5, X6 and X7 crossovers. This is likely to happen very soon, as the company currently does not offer the M550i xDrive in Europe, but only the diesel M550d. The reason is that the engine fails to meet the environmental standards under the new WLTP standard.
