Navigation has been updated to iDrive 5.0, with touchscreen functionality for its display. BMW’s xLine is now standard, including stainless steel underbody cladding, a Cerium Gray “kidney” grille and front air intakes, aluminum window trim, an anthracite headliner, and revised 19-inch Y-spoke wheels. The M Sport is now an option package; its 20-inch double-spoke wheels are offered in black. Premium and Executive Packages include wireless charging and a wi-fi hotspot. Extended Merino leather upholstery with a leather dashboard is newly available
All X6 models can carry five passengers along with 20 cubic feet of cargo. With the rear seat out of the way, you’re good to haul up to 54 cubic feet of stuff, about the same as a compact wagon. As before, interior trimming are first-rate, even for this class.
The standard 3-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine develops 300 horsepower and can be paired with rear- or all-wheel drive. The available turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 achieves 445 horsepower and comes exclusively with all-wheel drive. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard across the board.
