For the 2024 model year, the BMW XM lineup expands with a new Label Red model. It brings an even more powerful plug-in hybrid engine that makes it the most powerful M-badged car that BMW has made.
The 2024 BMW XM will have the same exterior design as the current SUV that’s on sale. The large SUV features an aggressive design with an angular fascia, split front lights, and oversized kidney grilles. Along the side, the XM has large fender flares, prominent body lines, and a roofline that slopes as it reaches the back of the SUV. The rear end of the XM features slim taillights, vertically oriented exhaust outlets, and a large diffuser.
Similar to other modern BMWs, the XM has a high-end interior design with premium materials, high-tech features, and a sharp design. The XM’s large screens are integrated into a single display for a high-end look. As a high-performance M vehicle, the XM has sporty touches like carbon fiber trim, large paddle shifters, and a sport steering wheel with numerous controls. The 2024 BMW XM’s interior design is expected to go unchanged for the upcoming model year.
On the tech front, the 2024 XM comes with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch touchscreen as standard. Other features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a head-up display, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a wireless charging pad, and gesture control. A 20-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system is optional. These features should continue to be available for 2024.
With the introduction of the new Red Label model, the 2024 XM will be available in two powertrains. The base XM will come with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine, an electric motor, and a 25.7-kWh battery pack, and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Power is rated at 644 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The high-performance Red Label has an upgraded version of the engine with up to 738 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. Both come with standard all-wheel drive and can travel up to 30 miles on electricity.
Standard safety features on the XM currently include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane change assist, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, a surround-view camera, parking sensors, park assist, traffic sign recognition, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high-beam assist. These features will continue to be standard for the 2024 model year.
