BMW debuts all-new 2020 X6

The new generation of the BMW X6 is wider and longer but mostly retained the same design.

2009 marked the launch of the first SUV Coupe, the BMW X6, or as they called it, a Sports Activity Coupe. Ten years later the German manufacturer presents the third generation of its Sport Utility. Indeed, BMW unveiled on Tuesday its all-new, next-generation 2020 X6.

This new gen is now longer and wider and features a new powerful variant. The 2020 BMW X6 has grown by 26 millimetres in exterior length and by 15 mm in width. It’s also lower by 6 mm and the wheelbase has increased by 42 mm. In short, it’s sitting on the new X5’s underpinning. That said, the interior remains virtually unchanged from the latter.

At the front, we find the signature BMW double-kidney grille. The 2020 X6 is available, for the first time, with the option of an illuminated BMW kidney grille.

A new 2020 BMW X6 M50i that features the twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 develops 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. This combination will be able to reach 60 mph from a standstill in 4.1 seconds, which is a half-second quicker than the outgoing X6 model and the same time as the current X6M. All the versions of the new X6 are getting the eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission but not all of them are getting xDrive.

The base version of the 2020 X6 will indeed be RWD. The version called sDrive40i, will be powered by BMW’s 3.0-litre TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine. This upgraded engine produces 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. An xDrive variant, X6 xDrive40i, is also available.
