BMW released details about the changes to the X6 crossover. The 2013 model gets light-emitting diodes front and rear, an optional third-row bench seat and choices in engine power, leather and wheel size.
Upgraded models will sport LED headlights up front with BMW’s signature luminous rings. The lights are adaptive, which means they’ll angle around corners, and they are accented by smaller lights. In the rear, newly designed taillights are equipped with LEDs and emphasize the width of the vehicle. According to BMW they create the brand’s hallmark night design as a glowing light mass.
Nevada leather is standard and is available in black or red. Customers can upgrade to nappa leather, which also comes in white. Trunk space measures 25.6 cubic feet with the seats up and almost 60 cubic feet when they’re down. A three-seat rear bench is optional, pushing passenger capacity to five.
Those looking for a few more ponies can opt for the M Performance package, not to be confused with the M Performance line. This includes an upgrade of 15 hp and 30 lb-ft of torque in the six-cylinder model and 40 hp and 30 lb-ft for the V8. The Performance package also adds 20-inch wheels, black chrome exhaust tips, stainless-steel pedals and a few other trim bits.
