BMW X6 project director Peter Tuennermann

How does BMW’s drive system work? It’s hard to put into words alone, so Peter Tuennermann, BMW X6 project director, explained while graphics are used to show the inner workings.

Two engines will be sold in the United States, but diesel and a two-mode hybrid are on the way.

The BMW X6 two engine variants are: the xDrive50i (4.4 V8 engine, 400 hp, 450lb.-ft torque) and the xDrive35i (3.0 inline six-cylinder engine, 300 hp, 300 lb.-ft torque), both with Twin Turbo and direct injection.

The new V8 engine is the most powerful BMW engine ever seen in a BMW. The same world debut includes Twin Turbo technology and high precision direct injection.
