What the Critics Say

The X6’s all about outward appearances. The 2020 version is longer, lower and wider than before, with a sharper nose and can’t-miss gate this time around.” — The Car Connection

Like other large BMW crossovers, the 2020 BMW X6 sports a massive twin kidney grille with its own unique shape, and for the first time, you can opt for an illuminated one. The grille also has active grille shutters that open and close to improve the crossover’s ability to cheat the wind.” — Motor Trend

BMW X6 Styling

Confident Styling

While the height of the new BMW X6 has been reduced by 0.7 inches for increased aerodynamics, it’s also slightly larger with 1 additional inch of overall length, a 1.6-inch longer wheelbase, and 0.6 inches of extra body width for a bold stance on the road. It’s also the first BMW vehicle to debut the optional illuminated BMW kidney grille. This large, single-piece grille can illuminate by unlocking and locking the vehicle or it can be switched on and off manually. Standard 20-inch alloy wheels can be upgraded even further to 21-inch and 22-inch staggered wheels with performance tires to enhance its handling capabilities. Slim L-shaped LED taillights complements the top of the rear hatch while its signature exhaust surrounds are cleanly integrated into a lower rear diffuser panel.

Standard power for X6 sDrive40i and xDrive40i models comes in the form of balanced 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine with 335 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque.

An available factory trailer package gives the BMW X6 a maximum towing capacity of up to 7,200 pounds. The optional Active Roll Stabilization system on the new BMW X6 also increases straight-line comfort by actively countering the vibrations triggered by bumps on one side of the road. Also helping to increase steering response, available Integral Active Steering is able to turn the rear wheels in the same or the opposite direction of the front wheels.
