Next-Gen BMW X6 Gets Drift Mode [Video]


The all-new BMW X6 has only just been revealed, but that's not stopping BMW's M Division from teasing the mighty X6 M. From this video, we can see it also has drift mode!

While not much is known about the all-new BMW X6, BMW's M division released a teaser video which gives us plenty of clues. The video was filmed at BMW's test facility in France where a German TV personality is introduced to a heavily camouflaged X6 M prototype. 

There are interviews with key engineers involved in the development of the vehicle, as well as some dynamic driving shots. There's a lot of censored speech and blurred components, which we're guessing confirms the fact it's an X6 Competition in the film. This vehicle is expected to have even more power than the standard X6 M as well as some unique trim options. There's no confirmation on engine, but we expect it to be a variation of the BMW twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 motor with power outputs in the region of 450 kW and 750 Nm. The exciting part? During the drive, we get to see the all-new BMW X6 going sideways, which indicates it has drift mode, with all power heading to the rear wheels. 

As for arrival, we estimate the BMW X6 M will be revealed by the end of 2019.
