Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
For the 2011 model year the X6 received both a new in-line-6 and 8-speed automatic transmission. The only significant addition to the 2012 BMW X6 is the availability of a split-folding rear seat, enabling three passengers to sit abreast when, of course, said seat isn't folded. This increases the X6 passenger volume by 25 percent, a nod to practicality you won't find elsewhere in the X6 architecture.
For 2010, the BMW X6 receives a power rear tailgate and HD Radio. New options include Automatic High Beam headlamps and a top view perspective for the rear backup camera. The available navigation system features an 8.8-inch high resolution screen and an 80GB media server. A hybrid model and M high-performance trim join the line.
When launched in 2008, the BMW X6 defied SUV conventions. It was brawny and featured all-wheel drive as many sport-utility vehicles do, but in other respects the X6 was an intentional compromise. Performance and aesthetics took precedence over pragmatics, yet the concoction connected with buyers seeking a personal luxury vehicle that's confident in any weather. 2015 marks the 2nd-generation X6, and it arrives sleeker, smarter and more efficient. As rivals like the Acura ZDX have come and gone and Mercedes-Benz preps its own foe in the GLE, the X6 keeps marching to the beat of its own drum.
