Last week, BMW unveiled the 2013 BMW X6 facelift that brings visual updates to the popular Sports Activity Coupe. Previewed along with the standard X6 model is also the refreshed BMW X6 M that gets a similar life cycle impulse.
BMW says that the new X6 is the first vehicle in its segment to be available with adaptive LED headlights. At the rear, the taillights are now two LED-fed light banks which create the brand’s hallmark night design as a harmoniously glowing light mass. The fact that they are horizontally aligned and stretch far out to the sides emphasizes both the width of the vehicle and the flowing transition between the rear quarter and the tail-end.
Attractive new paint finishes, light alloy wheel and leather trim further enhance the new look, including the Marrakesh Brown metallic, Orion Silver metallic and Midnight Blue metallic.
The new BMW X6 comes standard as a four-seat model. A three-seat rear bench is available as an option.
As an additional option, the M Performance Package is available in the US. This attractive equipment package is not just cosmetic. It includes an engine upgrade of +15hp and +30 lb-ft of torque on the X6 xDrive35i giving it 315 hp and 330 lb-ft.
The increase is +40 hp +30 lb-ft of torque on the X6 xDrive50i for total peak output of 440 hp and 480 lb-ft. In addition, the M Performance Package includes 20-inch light alloy wheels, black chrome exhaust tips, stainless steel pedals, M foot rest and door sills, shadowline exterior trim, anthracite headliner, and optional Carbon Black metallic paint.
No info has been released at this time on the 2013 BMW X6 M, but we expect another announcement shortly.
