2017 BMW X6 Release Date, News & Specs

Marketed as a cross between a high-end coupe and an SUV, the redesigned 2017 BMW X6 offers plenty of utility. Some of its upsides include a variety of powerful engines, a top quality interior, ample storage, and comfortable and serene ride. Its release date is set for the middle of 2017, so you better start placing your order pretty soon.

Some of the new add-ons for 2017 include an extra microphone and simultaneous phonebook sync, BMW’s premium Bluetooth package and text message capability.


The new X6 for 2017 comes with a daring athletic character and exterior design over the previous model. Traditional users might argue that the X6 was the vehicle that went down the history lanes as a “utility” killer. Well, it could be true depending on the argument. But for 2017, the X6, now in its second generation, comes with updated features that will make any would-be user content with their X6 choice.

The tons of high-end furnishings available in the X6 will help distract you from the lack of utility features. Additionally, it comes with spruced up engines that gather speed with such civility and smoothness. And as already mentioned atop this review, the X6 comes with unrivaled serene ad composed ride.


Still, the new 2017 BMW X6 has some fair share of downsides including but not limited to the coupelike roof line that goes a long way in reducing the backseat and headroom with utmost impunity. That said, if your priorities include a spacious backseat, some of the alternatives worth considering include 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe, 2017 Audi A7, and 2017 Porsche Cayenne.
