The BMW X6 Tested before mid-life refresh.
The coupe-backed brother on the X5 looks like it’s wearing a new face, with new details in the headlights.
Like the leaked X1 and iX1, and the updated 3 Series sedans, the new X5 and X6 will have an evolutionary tech feature of the hexagonal LED light signature that is currently featured in the BMW range.
Inside, the X6 will probably get the curved OS8.0 infotainment system. It has already been rolled out on the i4 and iX, with a larger 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment display.
Powered by the latest iDrive 8 operating system, this new infotainment system supports a minimal interface with over-the-air updates, improved personalization, voice recognition features and large icons.
It looks like the BMW X5 and X6 will get more than just their mid-life refreshed massaged looks, according to a new report.
BMW Blog “Internal data” cites that the power will increase when the xDrive40i, xDrive45e, and M50i launch 2023 X5.
According to reports, the inline six-cylinder xDrive40i petrol will be boosted from 250kW to 275kW, and the plug-in hybrid xDrive45e will increase power from 290kW to about 360kW thanks to the next-generation 7 Series powertrain.
A long electric-only range is also possible, although it is not clear how far it will extend.
Finally, the report claims that the flagship M Sport versions of the X5 and X6, currently the M50i badge, will replace its current V8 engine with a version of the hybrid S68 twin-turbo V8 that we expect to feature in the XM SUV.
Although it will not necessarily get a power boost. Current engine 390kW and 750Nm output.
