With the BMW Company, we can always expect positive surprises, and exactly the same case we can expect with the introduction of the upcoming 2018 BMW X6. This model is probably the best vehicle in the X lineup, and also their flagship model. We can expect it on the dealership probably at the beginning of 2018. The company also says that we can expect a lot of redesigns and modifications in order to keep their leader position on the market. Starting from the exterior design and then to some technologies inside, everything will be improved. This model will come next year, and meanwhile, here you can read something more about it. Enjoy the review!
2018 BMW X6 – A lot of New Features
From the outside, the 2018 BMW X6 looks very nice. First of all, we have to say that the chassis of this model will be improved and that we can expect a lot of lightweight materials in the chassis construction. Thanks to that fact, the 2018 BMW X6 will provide more efficient engine. That means that the fuel consumption will be enhanced. The company confirmed that there will be 200-pound weight saving, which is amazing.
The front side of this model is the nicer part of this vehicle, and it is very similar to the X5 model. Here we can expect double kidney grille that will receive some slight modifications. Below the grille, it seems that the bumper is more massive compared to the previous model. It will be fitted with the fog lights and with the large air intakes. At the sides, we can see large wheels fitted with high-quality tires. The size of the wheels will be 19 inches. The headlights will be powered by LED technology of course, and the same case we can expect with the taillights.
We don’t have so many details about the interior design, but what is certain is that the cabin will provide premium luxury. When the cabin of this model is full, we can see five passengers inside. Also, the cabin is a little bit more spacious compared to the previous model, and we can expect quite enough legroom for the rear passengers. The comfort will be very good, and all the seats in the cabin will be wrapped in the premium leather, most likely Alcantara. According to some rumors, this model will provide some wooden parts inside. Also, the aluminum trim is available. Some of the interior features will include dual-zone climate control, AM/FM Stereo, updated infotainment system, Graphic Equalizer, Satellite Radio Preparation, Steering Wheel Controls, as well as a lot of safety and connectivity options.
2018 BMW X6 – Engine Department
Underneath the bonnet, the future 2018 BMW X6 will be most likely powered by the same 3.0-liter twin turbo V6 engine. This engine will be capable of producing up to 300 horsepower as well as 300 lb.ft of torque. We can also expect the introduction of an electric motor with excellent lithium-ion electric battery. We can expect second engine options as well, and that will be a more powerful 4.4 L V8 engine. This engine will generate up to 445 horses accompanied by 480 lb-ft of torque. The EPA says that we can expect improved fuel consumption, but at this moment, we don’t have official details.
