The upcoming 2019 BMW X6 is a crossover SUV with good driving dynamics, design and well known BMX’s luxury. Compared to its X5 brother, X6 is perhaps less practical but priority isn’t hauling. BMW wanted to create a vehicle with much more sportier characteristics and put it in a coupe-like form.
BMW X6 comes with plenty of power as well, and it can become even more powerful with an optional engine. The design is more distinct and both X5 and X6 models share the same platform. The cabin is upscale and the ground clearance of 8.3 inches is more than good.
2019 BMW X6 is More Stylish
After a big redesign a few years ago, the 2019 BMW X6 didn’t change that much. The basic contours are still the same, but the skin is well tucked and more stylish. The new BMW X6 looks more refined than its second generation, but it is still as bulky as before. If you are looking for a combination of style and raw power, X6 is a car for you.
The roofline looks sharp and raked, and it leaves little space for rear-seat passengers. While most competitors are sized almost the same as X6, some of them like Range Rover Sport or XC90 are way taller. However, its sleek proportions make this crossover looks like a sedan with more muscles. It is not the most practical model in its segment, but it offers raucous power.
2019 BMW X6 Interior Look
The interior of the approaching 2019 BMW X6 is very familiar to a BMW’s customers. The front seats are comfortable and roomy, the seating position is higher than before and the visibility is great. The armrest that separates driver and passenger seat is wider. The dash comes with a 10.2-inch screen and it controls functions like audio or navigation. X6 is available with five passengers seats, and since the headroom is decreased, those at the back might feel tightness.
Cargo practicality is increased thanks to the folding seats. The leather seats and leather interior are standard, the same stands for the power-adjustable steering wheel. However, heated rear seats and ventilation for the front seats are optional. The list of standard equipment is long, but we must mention features like a power tailgate, rearview camera with parking sensors and universal garage door opener.
2019 BMW X6 Under the Hood

If you opt for a xDrive50i model, your X6 will come with a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine with 445 HP and 480 lb-ft of torque. The “xDrive” means that this model will use all-wheel drive system. All models are using an 8-speed automatic transmission.
2019 BMW X6 Price and Release Date
The base price of the 2019 BMW X6 is around $65,000. Choosing the xDrive50i model with the V8 engine will cost over $77,000. That means the starting price is slightly higher than X5 model but below its main competitor, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Expect that the new X6 will be released at some point next year.
