BMW's X3 and X4 are joining the M lineup for the first time ever, adding a new option for those who want a mid-size utility with a high-performance powertrain. Both models are powered by an M Twin Power Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine that produces 473 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 happens in 4.1 seconds and both models will hit a top speed of 174 mph. 

They will also be available in a competition spec that will raise the power output to 503 hp and will shave .1 seconds off the 0-60 time and will reach a top speed of 177 mph. Other features include an all-wheel-drive M xDrive system, an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic with three shift modes, and an M-tuned chassis and suspension. 

Production for the X3 and X4 M begins in April.
