Hey I wasn't sure but has anyone seen/heard anything about this car. I don't have any pics but search google and you will find a ton. But anyway i saw a ton of them at BMW today as i was picking something up from them to fix at work. Looks like the X5 but slants off in the rear. Kinda odd looking but still looks good.

X6 either is AND/OR has an available hybrid type engine. Basically the GM type of fuel savings, 20-25% savings compared to a normal same size SUV, will have a 4-5K price premium.

Its part of a joint project, same drive train as the hybrid one going into the Denali, Apsen, Durango, etc....

Basically BMW's production entry into the green market, Lexus style.


Edit: also, you sure you saw X6's at a dealer? I wasn't aware they had even left concept stage yet. Sure it wasn't an X3 you saw?

I wasn't at the dealer, i was at the BMW plant in SC, I work like 2 miles from there at a machine shop and they needed us to fix some part. I just wish i would have had my camera with me but i was in the boss' car.

Take pics!!!

I don't like the concept much. If they use a shared engine then it kinda defeats the "ultimate driving machine" image to share an engine with a Durango.
