And that’s a little odd since we’re talking about a quite economic diesel engine.
2011 BMW X6
Diesel powerplants have gotten quite good lately but it is thanks to this BMW creation that we can really talk about performance.
The BMW X6 M50d will be powered by a tri-turbo 3.0 liter straight six diesel engine which is said to push out some staggering figures without any neglect for smoothness.
If the stats are what tingle your nerves, how does 381 horsepower and 546 lb-ft of torque sound to you? How about a 0 to 60 time that falls below the 5 second mark?
Teamed with some chunkier suspension, the new engine and gearbox should make the BMW X6 SAV quite the fun thing to drive, even for very long distances without refueling.
Thomas Schemera, director of sales division BMW M praises the car’s steering, sound and looks above all other features. Since the other features are considerable, that’s one impressive car BMW has in the pipeline.
