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.

Comparative vehicle weight X5/X6

Given the same endgine & transmission, I wonder how much lighter or heavier the X6 is compared to the X5.

We don't know. You would think X6 is smaller than X5 but no! X6 is 1.8 inch longer, 1 inch wider, and about 3 inches shorter than the new E70. Engines and transmissions are unknown. I was thinking the N54 TT might make it to X6.

The dimension I calculated is from converting numbers from a BMWNA PDF publication.
