2009 BMW X6 to debut in Detroit show
BMW has announced that they will publicly debut their new X6 “sport activity coupe” at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2008. They have, however, released details on this confused vehicle, which will be powered by a 3.0-litre turbo-I6 and a 4.4-litre turbo-V8.
As the world’s first “sports activity coupe,” whatever that is, the BMW X6 will be available in two engine variants — the xDrive50i (4.4 V8 engine, 400 hp, 609 Nm torque) and the xDrive35i (3.0 inline six-cylinder engine, 300 hp, 406 Nm torque), both with Twin Turbo and direct injection.
Dynamic Performance Control is a standard feature that can direct torque to either rear wheel, further aiding steering in both dry weather and sloppier conditions. BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive technology, Dynamic Stability Control, optional Active Steering and Adaptive Drive are all available.
The interior is almost exactly the same as that of an X5, but without the headroom, although BMW claims generous space for four adults inside this four-seater, and four golf bags in the luggage area. It includes all the usual X5 toys such as iDrive navigation, multiple airbags, optional rear-seat DVD player and that joystick-like gear lever.
