Arrow BMW X6 LCI Spy Photos Preview Coming Changes

BMW X6 LCI Spy Photos Preview Coming Changes

The BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is coming next Spring and we bring you photos which preview the coming changes.

Consistent with BMW's recipe for subtle facelifts, the X6's mid-life refresh will bring revised and more aggressive front bumpers without fog lights. Following path of the new 6-series, full LED headlights will be available as an option and are shown in these spyshots. You can also see the LED daytime running lights.

The X6 LCI models will also sport new kidney grilles which will take on a more three-dimensional look - owing to the kink in the lower half of the kidney slats. The X6 rear will receive revised rear-light graphics sporting BMW's latest LED design. We'd also expect some subtle changes in the interior.

Technically, we expect BMW to introduce some new interesting engines. First and foremost, the often rumored tri-turbo 3L diesel engine might find its way into the X6 LCI under the X6 50d moniker. We would expect an output in the ballpark of 400hp and lots of torque from such engine. There's no word however if this engine will be offered in the US.

BMW is also planning to introduce a revised version of the 4.4l N63 engine in the 50i which will feature Valvetronic to increase engine response further while reducing emissions. The X6 sounds like a perfect candidate to be one of the first models to receive this engine.

Enough talking, enjoy the photos!

Is it me or do the headlights on the 3rd picture down look pretty similar to the headlights on the Vision Efficient Dynamics concept? The rings look more 3 dimensional.

Just got my '12 x6 and I'm glad there are no significant changes looks wise.

If it were me, I would cancel, although there is no such thing as canceling (at least for Euro orders), if you ordered that car will be produced, dealer may still change the extras to be more generic so they can sell it. Comes in Spring for sure, ask the dealer, they probably could confirm that already.

I know, I have two Titanium Silver BMWs!

The question is: is this Titanium Silver or is it the new Glacier Silver?

Looks like it has eye liner on with those headlight frames. I guess my wife might dig it.

That's just black tape for camouflage purposes.
