2010 BMW X6 Reviews, Prices, Pictures, Models & Specifications:

The 2010 BMW X6 lineup gains some new models, including a gas/electric hybrid and high-performance M. X6 seats four, is slightly larger than BMW’s 5-Series midsize cars and features a raised suspension similar to the company’s X5 midsize SUV. Conventional X6 models come in three trim levels, each with twin-turbocharged engines and standard all-wheel drive. The xDrive35i has a 300-hp 3.0-liter 6-cylinder, and the xDrive50i has a 400-hp 4.4-liter V8. The X6 M uses a 555-hp version of the xDrive50i’s V8. A 6-speed automatic is the sole transmission for gas models, and it includes steering wheel paddles for manual gear changes. The ActiveHybrid X6 uses a “two-mode” system that teams a 4.4-liter V8 with an electric motor for 480 hp total. It can run on one or both of its power sources depending on driving demands, and it requires no plug-in charging. Its transmission is a continuously variable automatic (CVT). Standard on all X6 models is BMW’s Dynamic Performance Control, which works with the AWD system to distribute torque between the individual rear wheels. The system is designed to improve steering feel and handling response. Available safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, curtain side airbags, and front side airbags. Standard on all is BMW’s iDrive control system, which uses a console knob to control entertainment, navigation, communication, and climate functions. Optional is BMW’s Active Steering, which is designed to quicken low-speed steering response. The X6 M has specific suspension tuning and trim.
