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.

Hi there,

Rumour goes that the new X6 won't be available with active cruise control.
Can anybody confirm that??

Thanks

I do not know,That will be bad
I bought BMW sedan for ACC

X5 and X3 do not have it(ACC) and X6 is also a SPORT ACTIVITY VEHICLE,
Maybe BMW wants the drivers to be ACTIVE and SPORTY in SPORT ACTIVITY VEHICLES ?

I have invetigated it further and it is withoud acc. There will be brake function in the cruisecontrol, but just to keep the speed when going downhill.....

More info look at http://www.press.bmwgroup.com/

I am realy puzzled why BMW doesn't put ACC in the X-series... maybe it has something to do with the height, but then again it can't be that hard to aim it right....

That is a big miss, time to go back to thinking about the 535xiT. I have ACC on my 335i and LOVE it.
