The 2013 BMW X6 receives a refreshed front fascia, giving it a slightly different look than the 2012 model year. Also new to the 2013 model year are LED taillights and optional LED headlights. Other than those, the 2013 X6 is a carryover from the previous model year.
The xDrive35i trim level on the 2013 BMW X6 acts as a base model for the sporty SUV, but this is no ordinary base model. Under the hood, this model includes a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that cranks up 300 horsepower. The engine mates to an eight-speed Sport Automatic transmission, which helps this Bimmer hit 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds and get 23 mpg highway. The outside comes with a set of 19-inch Star Spoke rims to give it a sporty look, fog lamps to allow you to see better in fog, xenon headlights for better night vision and chrome exhaust tips to spice things up. The inside features a 10-speaker AM/FM/CD/HD Radio audio system with iPod connectivity, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and Nevada Leather seating for comfort, and 10-way power front seats to help you find the perfect driving position.
Under the hood, the top-line xDrive 50i features a 400-horsepower, 4.4-liter turbocharged V-8 engine that mates to the same eight-speed Sport Automatic transmission. This combination sprints the X6 to 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds and gets 20 mpg city. On the outside, the xDrive50i trim adds in Double Spoke 19-inch wheels to add some extra sport to the appearance and chrome trim around the windows for so extra luxury. Inside, the xDrive50i tosses in a standard navigation system to help you get around and a universal garage door opener for added convenience.

|Build & Price|
Powerful V-6, awesome styling and the soul of a sports car, but doesn't look the part of an SUV and slow base model
Nice base power, looks rugged and Land Rover's off-road pedigree, but horrific mpg and relatively expensive
No frills V-8 muscle, awesomely fast and power on the cheap, but lacks refinement, rough ride and lacks towing power
Low base price, good mpg, and peppy V-6 and V-8 engines, but lacks pedigree, very odd styling and no standard AWD
