The very first spy images of the next generation BMW X6 have been leaked and this vehicle was spotted testing at Germany’s Nürburgring track. The proto type is being successfully tested and we expect its final version to be showcased by year end. BMW is contemplating launching this vehicle early next year although we are not quite sure whether it will be showcased at Detroit or Geneva Motor Show.

The next generation X6 has been designed at par with its sister model – the X5 – while the X2 and X3 are set to receive a formal upgrade quite soon. BMW claims they will build all future vehicles on a rear wheel drive platform and we expect this X5 to be based on it too. Base dimensions have risen from 4677 to 4910 mm and this move is solely to improve interior space.

Official word is yet to arrive on its power train although we believe that a 3.0 liter turbo charged diesel engine is behind power delivery. BMW wants to implant a tri turbo charged six cylindered 3.0 liter engines although power displacement capabilities are yet to be determined. The range topping version will however be powered by a 4.4 liter V8 petrol engine, standard on all M Class vehicles.

The company is currently working on a 3.0 liter turbocharged diesel engine along with an electric hybrid drive train. This should work on clients demanding fuel efficiency as well as amass tax benefits from Governments. The latest X6 is based on a refurbished platform of the X5 although use of steel is still prevailing on this model.
An aluminum platform is awaited although we are not quite sure when this will be in place.

As on now we are waiting for BMW to formally announce specifications and details while drive test reviews should soon be on its way. We should get out hands behind the wheels of the proto type so stay tuned for drive test reviews soon. BMW shared many components of the X6 with its 5 Series vehicles and this in turn saves production costs.

BMW has worked hard on the exterior design of this vehicle, which in turn is clearly visible. Electronic upgrades have also been offered while level of detail and comfort are quite high. BMW plans on making the X6 available across showrooms by early 2015 although we surely would love to get out hands on one of its proto types by 2014. Although interior trims are yet to be unveiled, we expect nothing but the best from BMW.

BMW is working on a mini SUV based on its X Class although whether it will be brought into production is a totally different story. Design cues have been taken from its other siblings and this vehicle should take on Mercedes Benz G Class SUVs quite efficiently. Additional LED Daytime Running Lights along with new grille integrated head lamps have been added to the X6 and they give the vehicle a whole new appeal and aesthetic value.
