Even though 2018 is a long way ahead, there are plenty of rumors and news surrounding that year’s BMW X6. So without further ado, let’s kick in:
2018 BMW X6 Release Date
We could expect to see the 2018 BMW X6 no earlier than early 2018, or possibly later.
BMW X6 2018 Price
The exact price tag is still unknown, but anything between $67,000 and $70,000 for the base version is realistic.
Exterior of BMW X6
On the outside, the new 2018 X6 is going to be just as sporty and modern as we were hoping for. Utility was once not a strong suit of this model, but it seems things are slowly changing for the better.
Or at least, the number of cool features are getting more efficient at making people overlook the lack of practicality that comes with some of the X6’s features – such as the awkward roofline, for example.
Sure, it looks awesome from the outside, but once you get in and your head starts bumping, things are not going to be as pretty, believe us.
Still, features such as advanced xenon headlights, LED fog lights, an optional sunroof, and larger, 19-inch wheels are all present and accounted for. Add to it a wide selection of colors and trim options and you get yet another winner in the family.
On the inside, the 2018 BMW X6 is likely not going to offer as much room as you might have expected, but there are going to be plenty of features and gadgets to keep your mind away from the slightly cramped space.
Power adjustable steering wheel, heated power front seats, lots of wood and fine leather for the upholstery, dual-zone climate control and folding rear seats are only some of the niceties that BMW has in store.
Of course, connectivity is also a major factor, and with that in mind there is a special Smartphone app for improved integration, Bluetooth, a state-of-the-art surround sound system, infotainment/navigation and obligatory USB drives.
Optional features such as a rear camera, keyless entry, a satellite radio and many others are there for those willing to pay a little extra. For top-class driving experience.
BMW X6 Engine
Sadly, it is far too soon to talk about the powerplant of the 2018 BMW X6, as there is next to nothing confirmed about it.
However, based on the previous iterations, we could expect something similar to the older 3.0 L turbocharged engine complete with 300+ hp and just as many lb-ft of torque and an all-wheel drive.
Another option was a more powerful 4.4 L V8 engine, capable of 445 hp accompanied by 480 lb-ft of torque. Of course, these as well as all other specs will probably be exceeded by the final version, albeit not by a very large margin.
The older versions could hit 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and rush on to 127 mph, but this came at a cost: the fuel efficiency was abysmal. 15-18 miles on a gallon in the city is absolutely unacceptable for a 2018 model and developers ought to know it.
