When BMW first unveiled X6 it received mixed reviews and you can easily see why – it is an SUV that has a form of a coupe, which was a concept that was not familiar at the time, but the controversial model was able to grab attention of customers with deep pockets and in no-time it became very popular. Actually, it became so popular that other manufacturers have started unveiling models to compete with it. The German manufacturer has recently introduced a new model, the 2015 BMW X6 that received lots of updates and it is completely redesigned.
New BMW X6 Exterior
The new BMW X6 is very similar to the X5, another SUV in the lineup of BMW. Actually, when you take a look at the new X6, you might find it difficult to see what has changed, even though the German manufacturer updated the car both in the front and in the back. The front of the car now has a little bigger signature kidney grille with headlights starting right where the grille ends.
The adaptive headlights come with LED elements and LED daytime running lights, which is a first for the X6. The front bumper looks like it was sculpted out of clay – with fluid design and curvy lines. The biggest news in the back are the LED taillights. The bumper is black with a metallic bar that houses the twin exhaust pipes. Apart from that, the rest of the 2015 BMW X6 is fairly similar to its predecessor.
The amount of chrome details depends mostly on the trim level or the market where the car is sold (there are more chrome detailing on all models that are sold in the North American car market). The German manufacturer plans to offer the new X6 in more colors and with newly designed alloy wheels.
BMW X6 2015 Interior
One of the key selling points of the BMW X6 (from the first model) is the amazing interior. The 2015 BMW X6 has an interior that is a great mix of comfort, luxury, functionality and beautiful design. BMW is still using the shelf-like dashboards – with the big wooden accents that strikes the dashboard through the middle.
The big wide-screen display is located on top of the dashboard and it is ideal for both satellite navigation and for handling media. The German manufacturer has chosen only the high quality materials for the interior, of which the leather leaves the best impression.
BMW X6 Engine
The BMW X6 2015 brings one really exciting update – the X6 sDrive35i is going to be the first rear-wheel drive version of this model. The engines that are going to be offered with the new X6 are the 3.0l inline-6 turbocharged engine that produces 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque.
Furthermore, there is going to be a 4.4l V8 engine that now produces even more power – 450 horsepower, while the M version produces around 567 horsepower.
2015 BMW X6 Price
The price of the 2015 BMW X6 xDrive35i will start at around $62,000.
2015 BMW X6 Release date
