X6 with new 306HP 600NM Diesel !!

9 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

I am ready to buy a brand new X6. And since i am in europe its going to be a diesel. Now i currently own a 535d with the 286HP engine.

And i would be very very dissappointed if I bought the X6 and then few months after, they released it with the new and improved 306HP \ 600NM Diesel engine!!

Does anyone have any idea when this engine will be released for the X6?

It is already available for the 7 series as a 740d.

i would really really love to hear your responses. Should I wait? Does anyone have any inside info on the release of this engine into the X6?

No info on when it'll be available in the X6, but if it is I would definitely wait ... that extra power and torque (with very little effect on emissions and economy) has to be a no brainer.

I'm no fan of the X6, but I do fancy a 740d. And there's word it'll be availble in the new 5 series too... now that would be a bit of a rocketship.

thanks for the heads up man. I agree with you. it will be good to wait.

I JUST WISH I KNEW HOW LONG I HAD TO WAIT !! Cause then at least i could start planning when to sell my current 535d etc and get my mind settled !!

anyone else have any ideas?

No idea when it'll be released... but I'd just haggle a good deal on a current model 35d and remap it to c 340bhp and 770Nm :grin:

PS: I love/loved my X6, it has Marmite looks... but they are a VERY capable car !

haha yeah, except i know in my mind that I would probably be able to remap the new 306HP engine to 370HP and 815NM of torque! Now thats irresistable!

I plan to go to the frankfurt motorshow to see if they know more there.

Golfer, which means the new engine will return at least 390BHP :)

more importantly i read that it delivers max torque not at 1750 revs like the current engine but at 1500 revs! Sweet!

have u tested your top speed?

YUP If the Box can handle the torque.
