The BMW engineers are well-known for their engines with low fuel capacity, considerable power and reliability. The German brand BMW likes to surprise its devotees as well as the automotive industry in general. This time the well-known M division of the brand turned its attention to SUVs. The X5 M and X6 M have already received their new twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 engines. Now the smaller X3 is on the way to receive its facelift and become faster.
It is expected that the BMW X3 M will be powered by a tri-turbocharged inline-six engine. The brand-new engine will feature three turbochargers, where one out of three is an electric turbocharger and two others are traditional exhaust-gas-driven units. The engine displacement will be a little bit larger. The new BMW X3 M will be equipped with 3.2-liter engine and will give about 450 hp, but the information about top speed is not confirmed yet. The rumors are spread about the price of the mind-blowing BMW model as well as about the release date. It is said, BMW is going to unveil its phenomenon in 2012. All we have to do is wait for information about availability of this model for the U.S. At present the North American market offers the X3 xDrive28i with a 3.0-liter, inline 6-cylinder engine and X3 xDrive35i with 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine with TwinPower. The maximum speed of 300 hp is developed by the X3 xDrive35i model.
