The very first X6 was presented back in the 2008 and revised version hit the dealerships in 2012. But, very soon, the new, second generation of this model saw the daylight – 2015 BMW X6. The new BMW model is redesigned and improved in many areas and it’s offering the choice between two engines.
2015 BMW X6 Engine, Specs, 0-60 and Performance
For the latest 2015 BMW X6 two engine options are available. BMW X6 sDrive35i and xDrive35i are powered by turborcharged 3.0 liter Twin Power Inline-6 (N55) engine which generates 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft. of torque. This engine develops 60 mph from a stand-still in just 6 seconds, which is faster than previous model. The 2016 X6 xDrive50i features 4.4 liters V-8 (N63) which delivers 445 horsepower and torque of 480 lb-ft. It takes 4.8 seconds to accelerate to 60 mph from a stand-still, which is again an improvement comparing the predecessor. Both engines are paired with standard Steptronic automatic transmission.
2015 BMW X6 Interior and Exterior Design
On the front of the BMW X6 2016 is a recognizable twin kidney grille, which is now wider, headlights are narrower and sharper and it features a brand new bumper with air intakes and fog lights. On the rear are redesigned tail lights, restyled bumper and a pair of redesigned exhaust pipes. Except all these visual changes, the 2015 BMW X6 is around 20 pounds lighter than the previous model, but that’s very cool consider it gained in overall width and length.
The 2015 BMW X6 interior is based pretty much around the same upgrades the X5 has. It features sportier design, new front seats, revised dashboard and upgraded instruments. Furthermore, it offers leather steering wheel and a 10 inch screen, a part of the iDrive system. Rear seats are foldable, and while folded the storage capacity of this model is 53.9 cubic feet (unfolded 20.5). The new 2015 BMW X6 is very customizable, it offers 6 color options and wide range of additional equipment. More about it you can find in Prices section of this review.
Overall, this is one huge car. Luckily, increase of dimension didn’t come at the expense of overall weight, quite opposite. It offers a lot of power, very nice sporty design and what’s even more important for this model – there is no proper competition for it… yet (luxury coupe-like SUV). Oh yes, we did mention a wide range of optional technologies available, so let’s see what’s in it.
2015 BMW X6 Price
The price of the new 2016 BMW X6 xDrive35i starts at around 62,000 US dollars while the X6 xDrive50i at around 73,000 US dollars.
