A prototype for the high-performance M variant of the new 2014 BMW X5 passed in front of the spy lens today, revealing some subtle details we can expect on the future X5 M. While the vehicle clearly has a long way to go before development is complete, we’re expecting very good things.

Unique front and rear bumpers, larger brakes, quad exhaust outlets, and wide, meaty tires give this camouflaged X5’s secret away. Like the standard 2014 X5 it’s based on, the X5 M will benefit from the next-generation design with weight savings  – improvements related to the F10 5-Series platform, which is expected to be the (loose) basis for the 2014 X5.

As with all M vehicles, the 2014 X5 M is also sure to get a specially-tuned, track-worthy suspension, wheel, and tire package. The current model’s grip, composure, and balance is phenomenal considering its mass. With the next X5’s weight-saving strategy, the next X5 M could improve on the formula even if powertrains just tread water.

Holding steady on power output may be just what BMW chooses to do, too. With 555 horsepower and 500 pound feet of torque rocketing the current model to 100 km/h in just 4.0 seconds with the M Driver’s Package, there’s not really much need for more grunt – especially if the next generation manages to shave the weight down.

Weight savings could also aid one of the X5 M’s few weak spots: fuel economy. Gas mileage in the single digits in real-world use has proved common in our time behind the wheel of the X5 M, if only because it’s just so fun to drive faster than you need to. Getting consumption down could help sell more units, even if the X5 M’s price tag puts it into the I’ve-got-money-to-burn category anyway.
