BMW released the X6 in 2008 and revealed a revised version in the middle of 2012. These changes were the last the first-gen SUV would receive because, starting 2015, BMW begins selling the second-generation X6. The BMW X6 has quickly become a successful model mostly due to the fact that it doesn’t have much competition. That won’t change too soon, but Mercedes-Benz is prepping coupe SUVs of its own.
With that in mind, BMW focused on improving the X6 in just about every area, including a 20-pound diet. Sure, that’s not much considering the X6 tips the scales at over 4,600 pounds, but it’s a worthy achievement for a vehicle that’s longer and wider than the one it replaces. Besides gaining a crisper appearance that blends many cues already seen on 2014 model year BMWs, the coupe SUV also boasts updated technology and a slightly roomier interior.
Engine-wise, only one engine available in the United States has been uprated. Unfortunately, BMW is still stubborn enough not to send a diesel mill over the Pond, so you’ll have to settle for the 3.0-liter gasoline version if you’re looking for something more efficient.
Updated 08/13/2014: BMW announced prices for the revised X6 set to go on sale in the fall of 2014. Prices start from $61,900 for the xDrive35i version and from $72,900 for the xDrive50i version. Prices go way up from these starting points, thanks to the impressive list of options offered by the company. Details after the jump.
