we are discussing about bmw x6


BMW X6, the German car manufacturer, curiously, the style of four seats "sport-activity-coupe" crossover, is more than just a new vehicle in a segment consisting of the BMW marketing department. X6 is also a kind of ramp launching a number of technologies that will probably be released in the rest of the range of the car.

The X6 will be two alternatives. The xDrive35i is powered by the now familiar 300-horse, 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six. But the bulk of what under the hood xDrive50i - a new range of BMW 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8. Both engine variants are mated to a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters, and as the name implies, come standard with BMW xDrive all-wheel-drive system sends 40 percent of power to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear under normal driving conditions.

The new V-8 is 400 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful engine ever offered in a BMW sport / ute, easily tops the X5 350 horsepower, 4.8-liter naturally aspirated natural V-8. The torque reaches its maximum at 1800 rpm and remains there until 4500 rpm, which makes the M3 of rev-happy V-8 - with its 295 lb-ft of torque - seem trivial in comparison. BMW says the engine to propel the X6 from 0 to 60 in just 5.3 seconds - an impressive number for a vehicle likely to weigh more than two tons and just 0.4 seconds slower than the 500-hp Porsche Cayenne Turbo . Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph on the 20-inch wheels equipped models.

Like the bi-turbo inline-six, the new V-8 uses direction fuel injection and two small turbochargers, one for each cylinder bank. The turbos are innovative with catalytic converters in the center of the cylinder block between the two banks. This packaging means reduced pressure losses due to the short intake and exhaust manifolds, improving engine efficiency. And as with the twin-turbo six, BMW has worked hard to use the Setup program to eliminate turbo lag, which will be particularly useful on a vehicle as heavy as the X6.

The X6 is also the launching platform for the new Dynamic Performance Control. Standard on the X6, the system operated by computer distributes power between the two rear wheels and works even if there is no gas input and can handle a power differential between the two wheels of a maximum of ( Learn more about this in our preview player X6 history). It works in tandem with other power and management systems on the vehicle chassis, including traction and stability control, xDrive all-wheel drive, active steering and electronic control the damper to maximize traction in any conditions and improve its management. The X6 rolls on wheels 19 inches, 20 inches available for the xDrive50i.

The interior space is reasonable. Headroom rear passengers, a common interest with the vehicle roof slope is said to be 37.2 cm - about 1.8 inches less than in the X5 and 0.9 inches less than the 5 series, but 1 , 1 inch more than in the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class four-door coupe. " Cargo space is a respectable 25.6 cubic feet to 59.7 that balloons with the rear seats folded. Standard BMW fare will be present - iDrive, navigation, power seats, side, knee and curtain airbags, power tailgate, the rear seat entertainment system, the work of Bavarian Motor Works. Eleven leather options will be available with three finishing options, including an exclusive X6 ash grain. In case you missed the claims X6 sports, sport front bucket seats strengthened are supplemented with kneepads on both sides of the center console to help reduce cramping bend.

The X6, first seen in pre-"concept" form in the September motor show in Frankfurt, will make his debut in the world in January 2008 at Auto Show Detroit, with sales from the second quarter of the year. Pricing and detailed specifications will be published on the sale date approaches. This is not exactly aimed at the BMW X6, but most candidates are people who want an SUV that will not only fast, as the Porsche Cayenne, but also appears saying to go fast. If it succeeds, expect other automakers to hop on the "sport-activity coupe" bandwagon. What we need, another segment.
