The 2020 BMW X6 debuts with more tech and more power

Everybody's favourite SUV-coupe is all-new for 2020: yes, the BMW X6
just debuted with tons of technology and more power.
And, as if having a massive kidney grille wasn't enough for this generation of BMWs, the X6's also lights up.
The X6 now rides on BMW's new Cluster Architecture, borrowed from the X5
.
The base model sDrive40i and xDrive40i receive BMW's trusty twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six, which produces 335 horsepower and 330 lb.-ft. of torque, sent to either the rear wheels only or all four depending on the trim.
For added performance, there is also the X6 M50i, which uses BMW's 4.4-litre V8, this time with two turbochargers spinning it up to 523 hp and 554 lb.-ft. of torque. Those ponies help the X6 get to 96 km/h from zero in just 4.1 seconds.
There's a new off-road package available for the xDrive40i as well, which includes air suspension for both axles, an electronically-controlled rear differential and four off-road driving modes: snow, sand, gravel or rocks.
Inside, the X6 is as comfortable as you would expect, and it's loaded with tech. A 12.3-inch touch screen and 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster feature BMW's updated seventh generation of Live Cockpit with iDrive. This means the 'Hey, BMW' voice assist, gesture control, wi-fi, wireless charging and Apple CarPlay are all available.
Safety features are also huge on the X6: BMW Active Assistant, blind-spot detection, forward collision warning and park distance control are all standard. Lane-keep assist, automatic lane-change assist and side-collision avoidance are all available as extras.
In the U.S., the BMW X6 starts at US$64,300; Canadian pricing and availability have not been announced.
