A successor to the BMW X6 will be launched shortly after the new X4 makes its arrival in 2014. BMW didn’t give the exact date for the introduction of this new SUV in the UK. However, it’s believed that the new X6 will have its global debut at the Moscow Motor Show next year. It’s also expected to go on sale in the third quarter of 2014, according to Autocar.
The new X6 is based on the same platform as the next X5 and it will have the same form as the current model except that it will have more aggressive details.
A source said that the company wants its sporting models to be more individual and to make them aesthetically more distinguishable from the more practical models in its lineup.
Furthermore, the new X6 will be a bit longer so that it offers bigger rear legroom. It will be offered with any of the following engines: the in-line six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, as well as V8 petrol units, with a plug-in petrol-electric hybrid slated to be available in 2015.
