2015 BMW X6 – the new model will certainly make use of X5 mechanicals to supply considerably less functionality and significantly much more design than that model. One prominent source within the style globe tells us, somewhat shockingly, that the X6’s shape has ended up being “legendary, like a Porsche 911.”.
The BMW design team has crafted a successful reinterpretation of the original, with a rather taller hood and brand-new headlights that blend into the renal grilles like the new X5’s. The interior will come to be much more sophisticated compared to that these days’s version, once again following the lead taken by its traditionally proportioned sibling.
The next-generation X6 will share its system with the new-for-2014 X5. Secret measurements will certainly remain essentially the same to in 2013’s version, but weight will certainly stop by as long as 200 pounds. Electrically aided power steering will certainly be carried out, and the car’s electronics design will be upgraded to accommodate the most up to date in BMW’s infotainment and telematics systems.
In america, customers will have a choice between a 300-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six and a 445-hp, 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8. We anticipate that the next-gen X6 will be readily available solely with xDrive four-wheel drive, although it’s possible that rear-wheel drive could be supplied.
Rear-drive became available on the X5 for the first time as part of the 2014 redesign as a low-cost, more efficient alternative. As the image-conscious SUV of both, nonetheless, the X6 does not always have to cater to those bothered with price or effectiveness.
A diesel engine is feasible, although that may not fit the picture BMW has actually built for the X6 either, making a follower to the ActiveHybrid X6 most likely. A follow up to the X6 M, this moment producing as much as 600 horsepower, is a sure thing. Each design will certainly utilize an eight-speed automated.
Release date and price
In Europe, the brand-new X6 will certainly release in December with a preliminary selection of 3 designs, all mated to an 8-speed automatic and four-wheel drive as basic, starting with the xDrive30d sporting a 258PS (255hp) 3.0-liter straight six-diesel that reaches 100km/h (62mph) in 6.7 sec, has a full blast of 230km/h (143mph) and returns a combined usage of 6.0 l/100km (39.2 mpg US or 47mpg UK).
The 2015 BMW X6 will certainly be introduced next summer. Base prices could edge slightly northward from the existing $61,725 point of entry, potentially extending the present premium over an identically furnished X5 from $8000 to $10,000.
