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.

That's because it has been discussed in the 3 series forum for quite some time. The twin turbo I6 in the X6 XDrive35i is the same engine that powers the 135i, 335i, and 535i. There has been much speculation that the true output for the (I think N54) is around 330 bhp rather than the 300 bhp advertised.
