From the Driver’s Seat: New BMW X6

The 2015 BMW X6 for sale at Braman BMW Jupiter FL

The X6 is BMW’s version of an Olympic athlete wearing a really sharp suit. You can find the new BMW X6 for sale now at your local Braman BMW dealership in Jupiter, Florida. The 2015 X6 marks the second generation of this popular model and the changes to the appearance give it a really defined, muscular look – almost intimidating. But the coupe roofline adds a dash of style; add it all together and it looks like it’s moving even when it’s standing still.

New BMW X6 Interior

Once you get inside, that muscular impression is reinforced by a feeling of… eagerness. The X6 is like an athlete in top condition, instantly ready to move, to change direction, to power its way through situations that would leave most other vehicles gasping for breath.

And you’ll find its both comfortable and convenient as well. The interior is a rich-refined space with really comfortable seats, and the back seats fold down to transform the X6 into a station wagon… a really fast one.

BMW X6 Specs

The X6 comes with turbocharged engines ranging from a 300-horsepower 6-cylinder to a 567 horsepower V-8 in the high-performance M model. Diesel engines will also be available. Our test drive vehicle fits right in the middle with a 445 horsepower V-8 mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

There are serious muscles on display here – zero to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and BMW’s all-wheel drive system grips the road so aggressively that it feels like you could drive upside down… and tow 6,000 pounds while you’re doing it.

BMW X6 Performance

The grip of that all-wheel drive makes the X6 a world-class all-weather vehicle and – not that you’re likely to use it that way – but it’s also got some pretty serious off-road capability. You’ll have to go a long way to find a situation that the X6 can’t handle.

You can tune the performance with the standard BMW ‘Driving Dynamics Control’ that gives you four driving modes that range from ‘Eco’ to ‘Sport.’ And for even more comfort, order up the optional air suspension and you can transform the X6 from a luxury creampuff to a snarling race car with the push of a button.

BMW X6 Features

All of BMW’s high-tech gadgets and gear is on the options list as well, including a head-up display, side-looking and overhead view cameras and a Harmon-Kardon audio system that sounds like the front row at the concert.

The X6 comes in three trim levels – Basic, X-Line (like our test car) and M-Sport. And the options list is almost literally as long as your arm. So stop by Braman BMW and they’ll be happy to help you decide just how many muscles you need… and how you want your suit tailored.
