High class luxury BMW automobiles are moving towards a unique design to differentiate them from the rest of the lineup. We’ve already seen the split headlights in the upcoming BMW 7 Series, and tomorrow we’ll see a refreshed BMW X7 LCI with a similar design. But even “low” class luxury SUVs will go through a design transformation When it hits the market in 2023, the BMW X6 will bring a completely new design of the Facelift Daytime Running Light. Among other design changes. You can see the new light here.
Daytime running lights have been redesigned
In these new photos published on Instagram, we see a BMW X6 facelift prototype covered in disguise, yet it is revealing the running light of its new day. The new light design shows a triangular shape with an arrow pointing to the outer edge of the light housing. And not surprisingly, BMW’s iconic lights have changed over the years: from double headlamps to angel ice to L-shaped lighting, and now in this new design.
The 2023 BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupe will get a slightly wider kidney grille while the front air curtains have been redesigned for a more aggressive look. It remains to be seen whether the rear-end design also undergoes a slight change. But one thing is for sure: the interior design must be redesigned. Previous spy photos and rumors point to a larger curved display like the BMW i4 and iX.
Furthermore, the new X6 Facelift will probably lose its current stylish electronic gear shifter for the minimal selector seen on the I20 BMW iX, which will give birth to other future models in the family like the G09 XM, G26 i4, the upcoming G05. X5 LCI, G70 / 71 7 Series, U06 2 Series and U11 X1. The interiors also talked about new technologies and options, such as ambient air and acoustic glazing, and of course, an illuminated kidney grill with a mesh design.
The engine lineup gets significant upgrades. The 2023 BMW X6 xDrive40i will be powered by the upgraded B58 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine that will deliver 370 horsepower. Following the list of engine upgrades is the B57 (TÜ3 modification) 3.0 liter six-cylinder diesel with a rumored 295 horsepower output. The engine will appear on the 2023 BMW X5 xDrive40d (a non-market model).
Other interesting news is that the M50i title is being replaced by “M60i”. And with that comes an engine change – switching over to a twin-turbocharged S68 that will also be shared by next-generation M5, X5 M, and X6 M. This will mark the first time in recent memory that BMW puts an S-Series engine (usually reserved for full-fledged M cars) into a non-M offer. The rumored power output of the 2023 BMW X6 M60i is about 535 horsepower.
