Used BMW X6 M For Sale
As we wait for the re-emergence of the X5 M after the 2014 model makeover and the X6 to undergo a similar redesign, we can still rely on the sportier of the two M branded SUVs, the BMW X6 M for sale, for just a tad bit longer. From what we have seen in the SUV, we suspect the redesign will bring some nice changes to the 6. Rumor has power going up and weight coming down, as much as 40 for the former and 200 for the latter, increasing the power-to-weight ratio in an SUV that already embarrasses lesser sports cars at stoplights and doesn’t simply take turns, but plows through them. We wouldn’t expect anything less than something significant from this pair. They broke all the M brand’s unspoken rules when the brand introduced them for 2010. Prior to that, there were no SUVs, no forced induction and no four-wheel- drive systems. Today, the M SUV has earned its spot in the lineup, turbocharging is an M staple, and with the proliferation of all-wheel drive throughout the AMG line, this luxury SUV will surely be driving all four wheels on its other M models in the near future.
The 2016 BMW X6 M is the crossover sedan carried into another generation. Its re-sculpted exterior features expanded front air vents and signature quad tailpipes. The 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8 has been tuned to produce 12 more horses, bringing the power output to 567 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. Mated to this powerhouse will be the new eight-speed Steptronic semi-automatic transmission. The M launches from 0-60 mph in four seconds flat. An exclusive option includes a head-up display that shows gear selection, rpm and shift indicators. It’s the perfect blend of Bavarian comfort and performance with the vantage points of a crossover.
What happens when you take a handsome and successful SUV and give it a fastback roof? The SUV started as a concept ‘Sports Activity Vehicle®’ in 2007, has sold more than 250,000 units worldwide. For an encore, the new-for 2015 lineup has a more flowing appearance than the hard edges of the first generation. What hasn’t changed is that the X6 and its X5 sibling are built exclusively in Spartanburg, South Carolina. All available engine choices are turbocharged, with the luxury crossover sporting 555 horsepower from its twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8. ‘EfficientDynamics’ can be seen in the unconventional design of the engine. The intake ports are outboard of the cylinders and the exhaust ports open inward to the engine valley. Both turbos are nestled in the valley, allowing for a direct shot of exhaust. Needless to say, the turbos spool with a vengeance, providing more than 500 foot-pounds of torque. A six-speed automatic offers full manual control via the sequential shifter or paddles behind the wheel. If you are looking for a refined and incredibly powerful crossover for your active lifestyle, this crazy fast SUV can be yours for under $100,000.
