BMW X6 M50d to Get Tri-Turbo, Six-Cylinder Diesel With 545 Lb-Ft of Torque?

Rumors are now spreading rampantly since BMW released its teaser video of the first-ever BMW M Diesel in the form of their X6 crossover. It is now widely believed that the X6 M50d will come with a tri-turbo, six-cylinder diesel powerplant pushing out 381-hp with a healthy 545 lb-ft of torque.

The folks over at BMWBlog are also reporting that the X6 M50d will go 0-62 mph in 4.9-seconds and that production of the model will begin April of 2012. An option for the X6 M50d also leaked out; the M division will also offer a revised front hood.

Perhaps even more interesting is that BMW's M550d xDrive will feature the same powerplant, making it go 0-62 mph in just 4.7-seconds and could get 38-mpg. The M550d is expected to go into production in March 2012 but will only be offered in Europe. Whether or not the X6 M50d shares the same fate is unknown, but given how slowly diesels are being embraced in America, we shouldn't hold our breath.
