Powerful, luxurious and amazingly agile, the BMW X6 turns heads wherever it goes. Now, freshened for model year 2013, it is ready to meet uptown theaters, downtown galleries and way-out-of-town dirt roads.

Two efficient TwinPower Turbo engines – a 300-hp inline six-cylinder in the X6 xDrive35i and a 400-hp V-8 in the X6 xDrive50i – pack even more muscle with the optional new M Performance Package, which adds 15 and 30 horses, respectively. These are ideally mated to the quick-shifting 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.

At night, another new feature makes its appearance. Optional Adaptive LED headlights with Corona headlight-rings illuminate dark streets with intense daytime-like light. They include Adaptive turning and Cornering Lights to lead the way around curves. The rear lights also now feature two horizontal LED light bars, a signature of the latest BMW models. Four new Metallic paint colors also make their debut: Orion Silver, Midnight Blue, Marrakesh Brown and Carbon Black.
