This is the basic engine among those belonging to the N62 family. It was born on the basis of the M62TUB35 unit, of which the stroke has been extended, from 78.9 to 81.2 mm. The bore, on the other hand, has remained unchanged at 84 mm. The total displacement therefore rises from 3498 to exactly 3600 cm³. The performance values ​​also undergo an increase: the maximum power goes from 245 to 272 HP at 6200 rpm, while the maximum torque rises from 320 to 360 Nm, available however at 3700 rpm instead of 3200.

The first variant is credited with a maximum power of 355 hp at 6300 rpm, while the maximum torque reaches 480 N · m at 3400 rpm. This version has been installed on the BMW X5 xDrive48i E70 (2007- 10 ). The second variant of this engine delivers 360 hp at 6200 rpm, with a maximum torque of 500 N m at 3600 rpm.
