The BMW X6 is one of those vehicles that many ask why. Why does it exist? Well there is some reason as to why BMW is going ahead with a next-generation model, due within the eighteen months.
Autocar reports that the next-generation X6 will get a more aggressive appearance, helping differentiating itself from the X5. The X6 will be using the X5’s platform, which will be shorten for the X6.Under the skin, the X6 will retain its monocoque chassis, but use much more high-strength steel.
Powertrains will likely remain the same but with some new tweaks. That means the 3.0L turbocharged inline-six and 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8. There is also talk of a new X6 ActiveHybrid being worked on.
