2021 BMW X6 Review
Perform Like an All-Star
The 2021 BMW X6 is built to lead the pack. When you are driving on the highway, the Sports Activity Coupe’s available engines create a synergy with its powertrain that generate a satisfying driving experience.
Our X6 review finds that the sDrive40i and xDrive40i establish a powerful baseline experience. Its 3.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine deliver 335 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. Both trims pounce on an open stretch of road, too. The engine can accelerate from zero to 60 MPH in 5.3 seconds.
What if your driving requires more power? The X6 M50i connects to a 4.4L BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that unleashes thrilling power as it glides over the open road:
- Up to 523 horsepower
- Up to 553 lb-ft of torque
- 4.1-second zero to 60 MPH time
These numbers empower drivers to accelerate the hills of central Pennsylvania with authority. How does the X6 look on the inside?
