The launch of the new face-lifted BMW X6 is kind of overshadowed by the M Performance Automobiles. Still, the new X6M is not a car you take for granted.
As minor the changes are on the new X6, they are even less significant on the X6M. The car looks basically the same as the current model. It does get a revised, bolder front grille, and new LED lights, but they don’t really make a difference.
Same goes for the interior. Everything remain the same, but you do get new colors for the leather upholstery. You also get the latest BMW ConectedDrive features with a range of electronic stuff for safety, connectivity and entertainment.
The engine, obviously, is the same as well. A 4.4 liter bi-turbo V8 developing 555hp and 680 Nm of torque. It does not get the new 8-speed transmission, however, because the M engine works best with the 6-speed Sport automatic transmission tailored for it.
Performance-wise, the X6M does 0 to 100km/h in slightly over 4.5 seconds and tops out at 250km/h (limited). One thing that won’t stay the same will be probably be the price tag. It is yet to be confirmed but expect it to be a few grand more than the outgoing model.
