BMW defines the X6 as a SAC, the Sport Activity Coupe. Compared with the X5, which is focused on road performance, the X6 evolved more thoroughly on the road performance, combining the sporting ability of the sports car with the versatility of the SUV in terms of shape design and power control. So when the BMW X6 first came out, it attracted a lot of attention.
The BMW X6 debuted from the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, to the start of the production car at the Detroit Auto Show in late 2008, and then to the domestic debut of the Beijing Auto Show. Up to now, the BMW X6 has been around for 12 years.
Recently, BMW officially released the official map of the new generation BMW X6 (third generation), and the BMW X6 M rendering is now exposed, the new car is expected to be officially released in 2020.
As the third generation of the car, the new BMW X6 is based on the CLAR modular architecture. In terms of appearance, the new car adopts a new family-style design language. The iconic kidney grille adopts a one-piece design with sharp angel eyelights on both sides, making the new car look more impactful. In addition, the new car is also equipped with intelligent laser headlights and LED fog lights.
The M version of the model is more aggressive in appearance, the body is blackened, the wheels are black, and the domineering.
In terms of power, the regular version is equipped with a 3.0T inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine with a maximum power of 340 horsepower and a peak torque of 450 Nm. The X6 M50i will be powered by a 4.4T V8 twin-turbo engine with a maximum power of 530 hp, a peak torque of 750 Nm, and a 0-100 km/h plus time of approximately 4.1 seconds. In addition, the new car comes standard with an 8-speed Steptronic gearbox.
xxWhy is the presence of the BMW X6 getting lower and lower?
Why is the presence of the BMW x6 getting lower and lower? There are two main reasons. According to the naming rules, the original BMW X6 is the flagship SUV of the BMW family. It is very high-end and the price is even more expensive than the BMW X5.
But this year BMW introduced a new large SUV BMW X7, which replaced the original BMW X6 and became a brand new family flagship SUV. Therefore, the BMW X6 is quite out of favor.
The second reason is that in recent years, major auto manufacturers are looking for a transformation and want to occupy a place in more car segments. Therefore, in recent years, we can find that more and more manufacturers have launched their own coupe SUVs. Among them is the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. One of the most interesting is the new Porsche Coupe SUV Cayenne Coupe. Its launch can be seen as the BMW X6 Terminator.
The third reason is that today's cars are generally moving in the direction of movement compared to the past few years. Even Lexus, which used to be very business, has become more active now. So currently the BMW family, X3, X5, looks pretty good. There is really no reason to choose X6 for a look.
The fourth reason is that BMW no longer needs the feeling of the coupe SUV brush like the X6. The sports image of the BMW car has already been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. Now that BMW has put its focus on new energy vehicles, we will see new energy vehicles like the i8, which are frequently exposed.
Traditional manufacturers continue to brush the sense of existence by the coupe SUV
