BMW's new X5 M50d has made its official debut overseas this week, following the new model's unveiling earlier this year.

Teased in a set of leaked images back in May, the X5 M50d enters as a performance hero in the diesel range, sitting just below the top-shelf X5 M.

Wearing a styling kit similar to the new X5 M Sport, the M50d gets a new bumper, skirts, and 19-inch alloy wheels - with 20-inch rims also available.

The M50d's engine carries over from the current and outgoing model, the big 3.0 litre six pumping out 280kW at 4000rpm and 740Nm between 2-3000rpm.

An eight-speed auto is again featured with the M50d, and BMW says the all-wheel-drive SUV will hit 100km/h in 5.3 seconds, on its way to a 250km/h top speed.

Fuel economy is improved in the new model, falling 10 percent to a remarkable 6.7 l/100km on the combined cycle. CO2 emissions are listed at 177g/km.

Features with the new X5 M50d include a lower sports suspension package, adjustable chassis controls and larger brakes.

Watch for the M50d to join the Australian range sometime after the late 2013 debut of the regular X5 models.
