2020 BMW X6 Release Date, Engines, Spy shots, Price. After an early redesign of the company’s basic mid-size crossover X5, we are expecting 2020 BMW X6 to go in the same way. The famous coupe-like crossover has established a completely new segment in the car industry and it’s getting more and more competitors these days. Considering that fact, and the fact that the new X5 is ready, this redesign seems natural.
The new model will come with a lot of novelties. Of course, there is a new styling to come, as well as new interior design. Expect to see the new model next year.
2020 BMW X6 Engines
Base 2020 BMW X6 will continue with a familiar inline-six twin-turbo. The new version will have a max output of 340 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque.
An optional V8 will also get a power boost, but not so big. This 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 will now feature around 462 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. Both engines will use the same 8-speed automatic transmission.
Outside the U.S. the 2020 BMW X6 will be available with diesel engines too. The other one is a large V8, with a max power of probably around 400 horses.
Expect to see a hi-performance M version in the future, probably for the 2021-year model.
2020 BMW X6 Styling
When it comes to styling, the new 2020 BMW X6 will definitely look sportier compared to the current model. Basically, the front end will be the same as on the new X5. Of course, bodywork will be completely new and it will include new bumpers, side skirts etc.
Another aspect where we expect 2020 BMW X6 to mimic the new X5. The thing that will characterize new 2020 BMW X6’s cabin is new, higher-quality materials. Considering that the new model will be slightly bigger, we expect to see more space on the inside as well, through various reports actually suggest less cargo volume.
2020 BMW X6 Redesign
The basis of the 2020 BMW X6 will be the company’s new CLAR platform. The new architecture has been introduced in some models already and it will soon have its premiere in the next-generation X5.
The new platform brings a 2-inch increase of the wheelbase, which should have a positive effect on the interior space. Some reports suggest the 2020 X6 will feature less cargo room compared to the outgoing model.
The new model should be more off-road capable, thanks to the introduction of a new “Off-Road” package, which should come with the same upgrades as for the X5 model.
Another important novelty for the BMW X6 will be a new “Off-Road” package. Of course, there will be some visual upgrade in terms of underbody protection and similar things, but the core will be a new 4 × 4 system. This version will get a completely new adjustable air suspension, as well as a new-generation locking differential.
2020 BMW X6 Release Date and Price
The 2020 BMW X6 is expected to come sometime in the next year. When it comes to the price, there is no reason why the new model shouldn’t keep the same or similar price range.
Nowadays, you can find a bunch of similar models, which are seen as potential competitors. Of course, other mid-size crossovers could be seen as competitors, so consider models like Maserati Levante, Range Rover Velar etc.
