The 2024 BMW X6 is a midsize luxury SUV, based on the X5 but with a slanted rear section of the roof to give it a more stylish, sleeker look than the X5's boxy profile. The X6's landmark coupe-like shape when it debuted has been cribbed by rivals. So closely related are the two SUVs that when one gets an update, the other one will too. And that's exactly what's happening for 2024.
Exterior styling updates are largely confined to the front and rear lights, but there are also changes to the grille surround and lower intakes and various small details. Inside, there's a striking new screen setup, which features a curved display, similar to the one found in the iX, BMW's futuristic electric SUV. Other changes to the interior layout include reprofiled air vents, a new gear selector and a few more touch-sensitive buttons. Both available engines feature the same displacement as the outgoing versions, but very little else is shared. The inline six-cylinder engine in the xDrive 40i gains a whole lot of power, while the turbocharged V8 in the M60 xDrive has been redesigned altogether.
