After the German automaker launched the X5 model, it is now time for his brother X6. Therefore, we will soon see the new 2018 BMW X6. Although it is not a family oriented SUV or a large SUV because of the limited cargo space, the BMW X6 is always fun to drive and a good choice for commuting.
Exterior and Interior
The point of sale for the current model has been the way it looked and it will not change for the 2018 BMW X6. Even if the car has not been released, if we look at other BMW cars, then it is safe to assume that the X6 will closely follow the original. From the profile and back, the differences will be difficult to detect. Expect new wheels, new color options, new vents on the sides and new tail lights. However, most of the skin of the car will be the same as before. On the other hand, the front will receive a little more attention. Here, we hope to see a face more similar to that of the latest BMW 7 Series with the new design of the headlights and larger kidney grille.
As mentioned before, the changes of the 2018 BMW X6 will be reduced to a minimum to give continuity to the car. However, despite the fact that the cabin should have much more in common with the last series 7. Hope you have better materials than before, as well as a better driving position. This will be possible thanks to the new chassis that will free up space inside the cabin. The big change here will be the addition of a luxury model. This will only have four individual seats, a lot of better materials than the standard car, as well as more features for the rear passengers. Although this has not been confirmed, it is very likely that the model will be launched soon after the launch of the regular car.
Under the hood of the 2018 BMW X6 will be placed several types of engines. The base model will come with sDrive35i (RWD) and xDrive35i (AWD) versions. The base engine will be a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 that will have a power of 300 horsepower. The next option will be a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8. This engine will be able to develop 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. This unit will reach 100 km / h in 4.7 seconds. The last will be the strongest unit in the range. This will be the same 4.4 liter V-8 that will power the M Sport model. As a result, he will be able to produce 567 incredible horses and 553 pounds of torque. All engines will be coupled to an eight-speed Steptronic automatic sports transmission. In terms of fuel economy, the base engine with AWD has a power of 18/24/20 mpg in city / highway / combined. The second unit with 445 horsepower shows 15/21/17 mpg. And the last used in the M Sport version is estimated at 14 mpg in the city, 19 mpg on the highway and 16 mpg combined.
Release and Price
The car will probably be launched at the same time as the all-new 2018 BMW X6 end 2017. Its price should not change too much. This means that a base model will likely start at around $ 62,000 with the high-end model that works well more than $ 80,000.
