For the 2020 model year, the BMW X6 gets a top to bottom refresh. Taking design cues from the recently redesigned BMW X5, the X6 adds the more aggressive DNA of a Coupe to create a class all its own. Orders start soon with delivery scheduled for the fall.

The 2020 BMW X6 will grow in size, 1.0 inches in length, 1.6 inches in wheelbase, and 0.6 inches in width. Overall height, however, decreases by 0.7 inches to improve aerodynamics and lower the center of gravity. The X6 also features the premiere of the optional illuminated BMW kidney grille. The kidney grille will light up when the vehicle is unlocked and locked and will also stay illuminated as part of the daytime running light feature. Further exterior options include the xLine design package and M Sport Package.

On the inside, Vernasca Leather, Sport seats, and a SensaTec covered dashboard all come standard. The standard panoramic glass roof has an increased surface area of 83% while the optional Panorama glass roof Sky Lounge add 15,000 graphic points to generate a display reminiscent of a starlit sky.

The X6 can be optioned in a variety of powertrains. BMW’s 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 6 can be had with rear wheel drive as the X6 sDrive40i and all-wheel drive as the X6 xDrive40i. This engine has 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque and does 0-60 in 5.2 seconds, almost a full second quicker than the previous model. For the first time, the X6 will also gain an M Performance model with the X6 M50i. This model comes standard with xDrive and a new and potent version of BMW’s 4.4-liter V8. With 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, the M50i does 0-60 in just 4.1 seconds.

Production for all 2020 BMW X6 models set to begin in August 2019 with a market launch of November 2019. The X6 sDrive40i starts at $64,300, while the X6 xDrive40i starts at $66,600. The top of the line X6 M50i starts at $85,650.
