Production availability for the X6

My local dealer told me they had finally been briefed by BMW on the X6. Then model names are 3.0si and 4.4si. So the guys on this blog have been right all along Ė the 4.4 twin-turbo is the V8 of choice! This is quite a relief to me, as most magazines had been predicting the normally-aspirated 4.8 for the V8.

Unfortunately, my dealer quoted April and July as availability dates for the 3.0si and 4.4si respectively. If the 4.4 doesnít make the scene until July, and itís a model-year 2008, I think Iíll have to wait! If it debuts as a 2009, then Iíll be the first in lineÖ Has anyone heard any news to the contrary concerning release dates? Would BMW really release the car as an í08 so late in the model year??

Yeah I heard that too...

3.0si will be the same engine as the 335i . I don't think that 4.4 TT V8 was used before. That thing has to have at least 450hp 's , just in order to compete with the cayenne turbo.

There will also be 3.0d and 3.0sd versions of X6 in europe...

I don't think they will make a partial release of the car. It will be released in april with all of the engine choices or not.
