2018 BMW X6 Engine And Release Date

The X6 is the car that set the trend four coupe-like crossovers back in 2007 so it is also the best selling model in its class. The ongoing variation has been introduced back in 2014 and you would expect BMW to help keep it on the market at least until 2020. But, it would appear that this is not the case. The X5 may receive a rework next year and this indicates that the upcoming 2018 BMW X6 may receive most of the changes as well. The largest modify by a big margin is going to be the platform. The new car is going to utilize BMW’s CLAR architecture which is also used on their latest sedans and on the future X5. This will let them to shave quite a bit of weight variety the X6 all while adding a lot of structural rigidity to the car.

Some might believe that that update is rushed but the fact of the matter is that the current car isn’t nearly as good as it should. It is based on an old platform which has been developed from that of the older X5.While the actual driving characteristics are great, the car is not as comfortable as it should, specially when considering the starting price of over $60,000. The new you ought to keep that great driving behavior while adding a lot of comfort to the mix. The new model is expected to hit the market by the end of 2018 but it ought to be introduced significantly earlier than that.

Virtually just just as in all the other BMW cars these times, the upcoming 2018 BMW X6 is expected to keep the design changes to a minimum. This will allow BMW to keep its figure but it will definitely fail some people. The already well known shape of the X6 is expected to be carried over unchanged. But, the car will probably receive a new entrance conclusion with a lot more design cues taken from the likes of 5 and 7 Series. The back might also move through a small upgrade in order to give it a sportier look.



Although several might argue that the most essential part of a car like the X6 is its engine, this is not entirely true. A car that costs more than $60,000 must be great inside the cabin. Because of that we expect the upcoming 2018 BMW X6 to become a lot greater in terms of quality and comfort. First of all, this model might get a lot more from the more costly 7 Series in order to allow it to stay competitive. On top of that, it might receive more space thanks to its new platform which should allow a better interior layout than before.

This is hardly a surprise as of this point. BMW has been moving their small engine across all of their models and the same thing can happen with the X6. The base engine may today be replaced by a 2 liter turbocharged inline 4 with more than 255 horsepower. The higher end models will stick to either a 3 liter turbo inline 6 or with a larger 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8. The V12 from the 7 Series is unlikely as of this point.

Assume small energy upgrades across the range while keeping the fuel consumption at roughly the same levels as before. The diesel engines will be carried over with the exception of the new quad-dual stage turbocharged 3 liter unit. This today makes 400 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque in the 7 Series and it is expected to come to the X6 unchanged. A future M model might receive a new powertrain but nothing has been established as of this point.
