​2015 BMW X6: This Is It

Because BMW is spreading its segment-busters down the line, it's now time for the 2015 BMW X4.

BMW says the X6 is lighter by around 20 pounds, even though it's about an inch-and-a-half longer, a few mills wider and a bit taller. Still, you'd have to swap your Doberman for a Bichon Frise to fit a dog in the 20.5 cubic-inches in the back.

Two engine choices are available in the U.S., and naturally, neither one is a diesel. You can get the same turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six (N55) with 300 hp and (an underrated) 300 lb-ft, in the xDrive 35i or in the first rear-wheel-drive X6 sDrive 35i.

But if you're going to give a middle finger to both the world and practicality, the xDrive 50i comes packing the twin-turbo'd 4.4-liter V8 (N63) with the snails stuffed inside the V of the block. That beastie is good for 445 hp and 480 lb-ft, up from 400 and 450 on the previous generation.

The wraps come off at the Moscow Motor Show in August, with sales starting in the States this fall – just in time for you to don that rabbit fur ushanka you've been eyeing.
