In 2012, the first generation BMW X6 will go through a facelift process that will bring small design updates to the styling. The visual changes will be limited to revised headlights, new front and rear a pros, as well as LED-powered white corona rings for daytime running lights. At the end, the taillights will receive the now usual LED treatment.

The biggest change will from under the hood. According to our sister-magazine BimmerToday, quoting unnamed BMW sources, the company will introduce a new X6 model to the market: BMW X6 xDrive50d. The new model is said to feature the long-time rumored tri-turbo diesel engine that was first reported on by us back in 2009 and later in 2010. At the time, we believed the model designation will be xDrive45d.

Rumor: BMW X6 xDrive50d with Tri Turbo engine 400 hp

The Tri-Turbo diesel engine is said to like an inline six-cylinder with 3.0 liter displacement and three turbochargers. The power of this engine will peak around the 400 horsepower mark. The standard consumption is also reportedly lower than comparable diesel engines.

BMW will introduce the new tri-turbo engine in March 2012.

Other changes are also coming to the X6 facelift. The company will also revise the powerplants in the X6 xDrive30d, xDrive40d, xDrive35i and xDrive50i. All these models will receive updated units with more power and better fuel efficiency.

The second-generation BMW X6 will be built under the internal code F16 and will arrive in 2014.

    Yes the engine will first be seen on the BMW X6 xDrive50d as part of an LCI across the range.
    The next lead in model for the engine will be the BMW 750d,750dLi with optional xDrive.

    The first all new model to incorporate the engine will be the all new BMW 6er Gran Coupe which will also offer an exclusive M-Sport packet and optional xDrive.  The engine will follow through in the BMW 5er Sedan,Touring and Gran Turismo and the 6er Coupe and Cabrio and X5 by the close of 2012.

    Along with the LCI of the BMW X6 a new  X6M edition will be unveiled. Along with some visual changes to the aerodynamics , new wheels and an option of a new “Frozen” matte option.  Technical changes relate to more power and updates to harness that power.  X6M will also benefit from some CRT to give the new X6M even more benefits.

    Following in 2013 Will be BMW M’s first four door Coupe – The BMW M6 Gran Coupe. And to further extend the car from the core BMW M5 as BMW’s flagship four door M . M6 Gran Coupe will receive a boost of up to 580PS. Given that the arrival of the Gran Coupe M6 will mean the M5 will be approaching it’s second birthday.

    To capitalize on the car’s status as a flagship. M6 Gran Coupe will receive a Performance -luxury orientated interior which can be further extended via BMW Individual.
