2013 BMW X6

2013 BMW X6 spyshots

The Bavarian carmaker has been deploying more prototypes for test drive more than we any other automakers. The latest prototype we spotted is the facelifted 2013 BMW X6. Just like any other recent Bimmer spyshots, the rugged SUV was taking its winter test drive with less camouflage sheet – or is it no camouflage sheet at all? – except with the fact that the test driver just took it for a bit of snow-drifting as the back of this facelifted SUV covered in snow dust.

Dear BMW, thank you for finally sending the 2013 X6 for test drive so we don’t have to used ourselves with the X6 Sports Activity Coupe which introduced at 2008 Detroit Auto Show. So, why the Bavarian carmaker seems in rush to develop the facelifted 2013 BMW X6? No official information, but we suspected that the introductory for the vehicle could be at Geneva Motor Show if we judging by the less camouflage sheet, Paris Motor Show, Chicago Auto Show, or the grand finale of all, the Frankfurt Motor Show.

2013 BMW X6 spyshots rear view hinted that the debut for the facelifted German SUV 2013 BMW X6 could be at Geneva Motor Show. Rumor has it the Bavarian automaker will bring the super-diesel version of the rugged SUV. Before we discussing on what facelifting program BMW applied to the 2013 X6, the spyshots we got only two sets as the other were not represent the right angle.

Our aforementioned source reported that the facelifted 2013 BMW X6 has full LED lights, just like the 6-Series. Another change we spotted is bit of kink at the bars on the front grille. Oh, the bumpers and taillights are also have been revised.

Engine Choice for Bentley SUV


The possibility we will see the Bentley SUV both in concept or production version is late 2014 because the luxury carmaker has scheduled their SUV to enter the market in 2015. Rumor has it that the mysterious Bentley SUV will be using a 12-cylinder petrol engine. Wait, Bentley wants to make a SUV that might challenge the Bugatti?

Well, perhaps if we are looking at the engine choice in the form of 12-cylinder or to make it more clear, a W12 engine. That is the same engine that powered a Bugatti without a turbocharge system. But with Bentley, we doubt it that the SUV will stay on pure W12 engine, because there is a big possibility that the SUV will be powered by a W12 with a turbocharged system.

So, why Bentley chooses W12 engine for a SUV? Bentley has one thing to convey on the automotive world: luxury. And using the W12 engine will be emphasizing Bentley’s supremacy on the luxury car segment – or should we change it into luxury SUV segment? Other reason is might be because the W12 is currently powering the Continental range and it would be save some money because Bentley doesn’t have to do research and development of the new engine for the SUV.

Bentley keeps the SUV project in complete hush-hush which means we have to use our probability cause. Probably, the SUV has other engine option in form of diesel to challenge the next-gen of Audi Q7 that is powered by the V12 TDI unit. One of the main reasons why Bentley has confident in SUV project is because they have changing the chief engineer – Elrich Ecihhorm with the new guy – Rolf Frech who served as engineer from Porsche. It means that Herr Frech has more experience in the field because he was part of Cayenne development team.
