BMW Unveils Refreshed 2013 X6

Report

BMW's ultimate niche SUV receives its first refresh since it was first launched.

As expected, BMW has just revealed official photos and details of their refreshed X6 SUV/Coupe/ what have you. Although we've never been the biggest fans of the X6's styling, we'll admit the refresh is a nice improvement. Set to arrive in dealerships later this year, the 2013 X6 continues on with the same 400hp 4.4-liter TwinPower turbocharged V8. The base 300hp 3.0-liter inline-six also remains and both are mated to an eight-speed automatic (which is also a carry-over from last year).

For those who opt for the M Performance Package, they'll be treated to some extra horsepower in each engine. The V8 receives an additional 40hp and 30lb-ft of torque and the inline-six is treated to 15 more ponies and 30lb-ft. The package also adds 20-inch alloy wheels, black chrome exhaust tips, unique M foot rests and door sills, stainless steel pedals, and optional Carbon Black metallic paint. But what perhaps gives the freshened X6 its most recognizable update is the new front- and rear-ends. The changes begin with the fog lights which have been moved slightly higher and are now further apart and also have matte-finish surrounds.

BMW's trademark kidney grille also receives a refresh with new angles, bars, and styling. LED adaptive headlights are now offered as an upgrade from the standard Xenon lights. LEDs are now also at the rear-end. There are also several new exterior paint color options along with some new leather interior choices. Seating for four remains standard and the optional three-seat rear bench is also available. Official pricing hasn't been released, but we don't expect any major changes from the outgoing model.
