X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

Post Available X6 summary from U-tube

Here's what I gather from the clips available on U-tube:
1) The car is bigger than it looks in pictures (apparently big full stop!)
2) UK clip seems to think ca 50kGBP starting with two V8 and one V10 option - no mention of diesel. (the UK BMWs in that price range are basic models of 6 series - 6 cyl or X5 V8s)*.
3) On concept car the exhausts are hidden by a rear "dune skid-plate" which can retract (for higher performance? - probably not a very sturdy skid plate in that case or very pricey)
4) BMW describe it as a real sports car with offroad DNA (not their words but my summary of them) - a crossover between sport and off-road.
5) UK clip assumes 2009 availability in UK.

So building on 2)* depending on BMWs thinking for the US market, this could translate to a price range between that of the X5 V8 (ca. 50k$) and at the most 6 Coupe (Ca.70k$). If they adopt the Range Rover vs RR Sport thinking, this car would be cheaper than an equivalent X5. But given the design of this thing I think that is unlikely. My guess: not far off the X5 with the same engine but probably with an expensive top of the range version.

Interested to hear any other views on price, specs and availability... Have fun!

If they are serious about this car and their safety ethics.. 4 point harnesses should be offered for those in desert countries/areas that won't be able to resist the urge... just don;t drag the family along in the back!
