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.

2014 X6 Towing Question

Hi: New to BMW towing. We have a 2014 X6 xDrive 35i with a BMW hitch Kit installed and will most likely use the BMW brake controller installed by BMW. We did nor get adaptive drive nor active steering.; also no 3rd row seat.

We plan to tow a travel trailer with a GVWR of 3,862 and a tongue weight of 379. Do you see any issues or concerns?

Also does this vehicle have a transmission cooler? Do you see any issues for 6-7 hour trips in the hot areas of the South.

Many thanks

I can't answer all of your questions, but I can tell you this....

I routinely tow my 5000 pound boat with my X6 3.5. I have had absolutely zero issues and the car doesn't seem to struggle in the least. Towed same boat with my former X5 as well.
