The X6 SUV was redesigned in 2020 when the third generation came out. The next-gen model won’t come in the next four or five years. Meanwhile, the 2023 BMW X6 is almost here and it will introduce minor updates. BMW plans to make changes, but the main focus is on electric cars. The iNext concept is being used for the new cars, but this coupe SUV won’t be all-electric as of yet.
Like in the previous years, the X6M variant will be on offer once again. In our opinion, the X6 looks better than X5 SUV, simply because it has a coupe-like body. The X5 has more space and the third row of seats. On the other hand, better aerodynamics will make the X6 faster. Here’s everything you need to know.
Exterior and Interior Upgrades
The SUV looks good, runs well, is reliable, comfortable, and safe. On the other hand, a lot of people won’t like how small the back of the SUV is. Because the changes are minor, we’ll focus on the current trim levels and lists of standard and optional equipment. The 2023 BMW X6 will offer adaptive headlights and LED fog lights as standard. Inside the cabin, a 12-inch screen, and navigation are available too. The interior is dominated by leather materials and some other premium touches. The seats in the front have lumbar support and heating. If you buy this model, you’ll get a panoramic sunroof as well. There are blind-spot monitors, forward collision warnings, and lane-departure alerts in the safety package.
The ride quality is truly amazing and generally, comfort is admirable. Some things are sportier than usual, including the steering wheel. The front seats are providing cooling and heating functions for even better comfort. The X6 model also provides a Wi-Fi hotspot and the latest phone integrations. Lastly, you should definitely check the list of optional packages, because there is a lot of them.
The upcoming BMW X6 is a mid-size SUV, so it needs a powerful six-cylinder engine to get it going. This model provides a potent 3.0-liter turbo-six engine, producing 335 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. The X6 SUV offers an optional four-wheel-drive system once again. There will be no mechanical changes of any type. This model delivers 23 mpg, which isn’t bad, given the amount of power it generates.
If you want more power, the X6 M50i is the high-performance variant. A V8 engine is ready to make 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. This model gets only 18 mpg combined. BMW offers the same eight-speed automatic transmission, as always before. Generally, this coupe-like SUV will not introduce mechanical upgrades, so the performance remains the same.
2023 BMW X6 Release Date, Price
The forthcoming 2023 BMW X6 will retain the price of the outgoing model. This means this premium coupe-SUV will cost around $77,000 once again. The sales will begin at some point in the second half of 2022. As before, the X6 SUV will rival models such as Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, Lincoln Aviator and Lexus RX.
