Queens BMW X6 | Long Island City Used Car Specials
BMW has officially dubbed the X6 a “Sports Activity Coupe,” but perhaps “fastback SUV” would be a more descriptive moniker. Based on the previous-generation BMW X5, this four-door midsize crossover can be recognized by its dramatically downward-sloping roof line, bringing to mind the classic profiles of fastback coupes. BMW has given the X6 a compelling choice of engines and handling abilities that overshoot ordinary expectations. This high-riding performance “coupe” with room for four adults is a bit quirky, but has a lot of appeal. The BMW X6 was introduced in 2009 but each model year had its own high points. In 2010 only, there was a performance upgrade option that pushed the six- and eight-cylinder engines’ outputs up to 320 horsepower and 440 horsepower respectively. For 2011, the xDrive35i received a new, more fuel-efficient turbocharged six-cylinder engine. The X6 was strictly a four-passenger vehicle until 2012, when a three-passenger seat option made its appearance. Subtle exterior design alterations debuted for 2013, including standard LED taillights and optional LED headlights.
The Long Island City BMW X6 offers two trim levels: xDrive 35i and xDrive50i. The xDrive35i’s 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine churns out 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, while the xDrive50i’s 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 sizzles with 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Both are partnered with an eight-speed automatic. All X6 models are equipped with all-wheel drive and a trick torque distribution system called Dynamic Performance Control. This system delegates power to each wheel in order to maintain maximized traction and directional stability. The xDrive35i comes standard with adaptive xenon headlights, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, power front seats, the iDrive electronics interface and a 10-speaker audio system. The xDrive50i slides further up the luxury scale, adding a turbocharged V8, upgraded front seats and a navigation system. As with most BMWs, the options list is long.
The X6’s styling isn’t for everyone, but for those looking for a sporty and unique vehicle, the fastback roof line, huge wheels and other sporty styling accents are sure to please. The BMW X 6 cabins will provide you with comfortable seats, an optimized driving position and high-quality materials.
