2015 BMW X6

BMW unveiled a revised version for the X6 in the middle of 2012, but these changes will be the last the car will receive because, in 2015, BMW will begin the SUV’s second generation. The BMW X6 has quickly become a successful model mostly due to the fact that it doesn’t have much competition. This second generation was imperative because, in 2014, both Audi and Mercedes will be bringing out decent competitors.

BMW will work on the car’s overall look, but their focus will mostly be on reducing the SUV’s total weight and its fuel economy. It has been rumored that BMW will cut about 330 lbs, so the next X6 will weigh about 4,400 lbs. The engine line-up will also get some changes: the entry level version will now use a base four-cylinder engine with 245 HP, while the top version plans to get a 405 HP straight-six engine. There will also be a hybrid just like the current generation.

Next to the technical improvements, BMW will also be working on making the car more agile and more aerodynamic. The interior will also receive higher quality materials and all the latest BMW technologies.

Rendering

In creating the new rendering for the second generation BMW X6 we took our inspiration from the recently announced X5. However, we added a coupe-style roof and redesigned the rear- end with new rear lights and a smaller trunk door.

Our second rendering uses the new X5 as a base, but adds a coupe-style roof and a shoulder line similar to the one revealed by the X4 Concept.

Competition

By the time the second generation X6 will arrive on the market, Porsche will also offer an updated version for the second generation Cayenne. Updates will include a revised front bumper and new headlamps and for the rear a new bumper and new rear lights.

Under the hood the model will keep the usual 3.6-liter V-6 engine and a 4.8-liter V-8 biturbo, but we do expect to see slightly increased output.

The new-generation Range Rover Sport was unveiled at the 2013 New York Auto Show. It comes with a choice of four different engines: two gasoline units and two diesel units.

The base version gets a 340-horsepower 3.0-liter V-6 supercharged engine, while top version will be powered by a 5.0-liter V-8 supercharged engine that delivers a total of 510 horsepower. Diesel fans will get an ultra-efficient 3.0-liter V-6 turbo diesel offered in two versions: a 258 horsepower TDV6 and 292 horsepower SDV6.

Hopefully, it’s the last since they are starting on a new development right? It’s the next-generation of BMW.

The face lifted version of BMW is not a good idea if they didn’t focus on what’s really mattered. I suggest to replace the headlamps with LED and reshaping it to more vicious look.

Despite its superb presence of appearance, I still find the lack of an engine update ineffective.

I’m not saying that I don’t trust BMW, but rather, I won’t expect too much from this. I’ll be able to like it anyway even if it’s beaten by its competition.

Since it has a long way to go before unveiling, I expect this to be the best BMW automotive when the time comes.

I’ll patiently wait for BMW to unveil this. I believe that BMW will make this X6 better than other cars.

Does it take that long to do a facelift? I’m genuinely curious. Even though we’re talking about exterior looks here, some even expect mechanical upgrades too.

I am looking forward on seeing much of the design of this car. Not just the back part. I will keep myself updated about the technical improvement of this SUV.

Yeah! They should really do that for the fact that 245 horsepower is not truly enough to beat already its competitor. However, I would admit that it is so attractive and lovely on its aesthetic design.

The fact that its rival is an Audi and Mercedes vehicle, I think BMW should really need to boost its engine for its rival are truly can offer an awesome figure performance.

It sounds great to know that they are more focusing on reducing the weight of this vehicle. Furthermore, I noticed that the exterior detailing of it is really looks so perfect, especially on its side rims and with the body paint that they use on it.

I wonder if what are the other great feature that this BMW X6 can offer aside from its decent and fabulous exterior appearance. Anyway, 245 hp is not a satisfying output for this kind of vehicle.
