X6? Where is BMW going with this thing? An SUV with no rear headroom or cargo area.......... probably can't tow either. I don't get it. Why not just buy a 5er or 7er? It looks like every BMW styling exercise they've had left over in the last several years, all mixed together. Like a bad casserole......

My first "diss" of a BMW product... my apologies. I'll really go out on a limb here and predict slow sales for it as well.

I dunno, I can see a LOT of baller's wives cruisin' around town in one- thinking they look hot in their sporty SUV "coupe." Could be a good seller...

I used to get 29 - 30 miles to the gallon in my 325. I even took pictures of the on board computer to prove it.

For now it will share the X5's engine choices- the 4.8L V8 and the 6cyl. With it's lighter weight over the X5 it should crack the 6 second 0-60 time.

Heck, I get 27 or more in my E46 M3 at 65 (not that I ever drive that speed).

I made a trip from West Palm Beach to Orlando, and I was actually checking to see how good the gas mileage was in my car. I drove like 60 max and I have a method I use for fuel consuption. I think 30 is very good for the type of car.

I regularly get 27-28 mpg cruising at 80-85 (and sometimes 90) on the southern interstates...

the x6 is stunning. but the rear window is raked so aggressively and is so small, that i wouldn't be surprised if visibility is severely diminished.

Nobody in America looks before they change lanes anyway, let alone signals.

Yeh that's a big generalized statement. I didnt want to say anything, but I always look. I might be in the minority I dont know.
