The new-generation 2023 BMW X6 has finally been spied facelifted, and it is expected to be launched sometime next year. Based on the popular X5 model, the new SUV will receive a mid-life update for the next year. As we can see, the manufacture will try to make this SUV more attractive and to lure many buyers.
First and foremost, the exterior looks way better than before, just as it does its interior. Unfortunately, it’s unclear if there will be any changes under the bonnet of this model. Like before, the BMW X6 rides on the same modular CLAR platform, and it should once more compete against rivals like the Mercedes-Benz GLE and Porsche Cayenne.
2023 BMW X6 Redesign
The 2023 BMW X6 was spied two days ago, wearing mild camouflage. Based on the latest X5 model, the new X6 looks attractive, sharing many design elements. However, the most apparent change to the caught SUV over the previous model is the slimmer headlights with a redesigned lighting signature.
We also noticed revised and bigger kidney grille and new front bumper with reworked side air intakes. Unfortunately, like before, the sides are unchanged, only visible refreshments are more stylish wheels. The rear is getting some changes including a new, squared-off quad exhaust tips, and better taillights with a signature graphic.
Inside, the 2023 BMW X6 looks way modern than ever. Fortunately, we have some of the spy shots, and BMW seems to have refreshed the whole cabin of the upcoming SUV. First of all, we noticed more quality materials, and the X6 prototype houses a digital instrument cluster and infotainment touchscreen in one assembly.
It seems that the infotainment screen is very similar to the all-electric iX1. This model uses a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch central touchscreen. Besides, we expect to see plenty of standard amenities, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
2023 BMW X6 Engine Options
At this moment, we don’t know anything regarding the engine of the 2023 BMW X6. Currently, the BMW X6 is available with a range of petrol and diesel powertrains. It deploys an inline six-cylinder turbo-diesel (xDrive30d), inline six-cylinder turbo petrol (xDrive40i) 335 horses, and the most powerful twin-turbo petrol V8 (M50i and M Competition) engines.
The M models range with output from 523 to 617 horses. It is also worth mentioning that this SUV in other markets comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder petrol.
2023 BMW X6 Price, Release Date
Not quite as popular as the X5, the new 2023 BMW X6 is still one of the most compact SUVS in class. The current 40i model starts at $68,000, while the more powerful M50i one starts at $87,000. The M competition model is also available, and it is more than $100k.
We can reportedly expect this model to be fully introduced sometime later this year, while sales should start at the beginning of 2023. As we said, in the same segment where the BMW X6 is, there are many models and the closest rivals are the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and Porsche Cayenne Coupe.
