Q: Is the BMW X6 an SUV?
A: The BMW X6 is considered by many to be a sporty crossover SUV. BMW designed the X6 to combine many of the elements from a full-body SUV with the appearances of a sports coupe. This exciting combination has created a genre all its own.
Q: Is the BMW X6 a 4-wheel drive?
A: The BMW X6 features all-wheel-drive technology developed by BMW. It is a full-time system that can adjust the power to each wheel, providing power to wheels with grip and reducing spinning on wheels without grip. However, since it doesn't have many of the mechanical locking parts of a four-wheel-drive system, it's not considered true four-wheel drive.
Q: What engine does the BMW X6 have?
A: There are two engines available for all 2010-and-newer BMW X6 models. In 2010-through-2014 models, the standard engine is a twin-turbocharged 3.0L six-cylinder engine that makes 300 horsepower.
