The diesel engine in the BMW X6 xDrive40d boasts BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, 230 kW (313 hp) and maximum torque of 630 Nm. Thanks to twin turbochargers with variable turbine geometry, it offers exceptional performance: It can reach 100 km/h from a standing start in a mere 5.8 seconds and has a top speed of 240 km/h. In combination with Common Rail direct injection, it produces impressively low fuel consumption figures of just 15.87 km/l, with CO2 emissions of 165 g/km.






The chassis is specially tailored to the BMW X6 and impresses with excellent road-holding, perfect handling and outstanding agility. At the same time, top-class comfort is guaranteed at all times.
With its Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes, Dynamic Damper Control enables driving characteristics to be individually adjusted. The wide track and five-arm rear axle of the BMW X6 allow bends to be taken at high speed with minimum body roll.
Dynamic Damper Control adapts the damper characteristics to suit the individual driving situation, ensures an exceptionally smooth ride and boosts driving dynamics. Along with the standard Comfort setting, which minimises disruptive vehicle movements, two other programmes are available: the Sport and Sport+ modes. They automatically provide the vehicle with tighter shock absorber settings and guarantee even sportier driving fun.


Adapt the chassis of your BMW X6 to suit your own personal taste. A total of four different versions are available for selection.

  • Comfort

    The ultimate in driving comfort with characteristic BMW driving dynamics: The adaptive suspension package ‘Comfort’ allows the suspension and damper settings to be individually adjusted at any time.
    The main components of the adaptive suspension package ‘Comfort’ are Dynamic Damper Control and air suspension for the rear axle. The standard setting is designed for excellent driving and damping comfort, and can be individually adjusted using the Driving Experience Control. It changes the damper characteristics via Dynamic Damper Control. The air suspension for the rear axle is included in the equipment package and guaranties a consistently high level of driving comfort, no matter what is being transported.
    When more dynamic suspension settings are desired, Sport mode and Sport+ mode are available via the Driving Experience Control. They make the damper settings firmer, which causes the car to steer more responsively, and to have sportier handling characteristics in general.

  • Dynamic

    State-of-the-art driving dynamics: The adaptive suspension package ‘Dynamic’ allows drivers to achieve the full driving dynamics of the vehicle. Encompassing both Dynamic Performance Control and Dynamic Drive, this package is guaranteed to deliver driving dynamics that are intrinsically sporty, while maintaining superior driving comfort, as evidenced by the extremely neutral steering response and minimal body roll in bends.
    The Dynamic Performance Control smoothly distributes the drive power on the rear axle between the wheels on the left and on the right. In bends, for example, the torque is increased specifically on the wheels outside of the curve for powerful traction. The result – maximum dynamics and optimal stability. At the same time, Dynamic Drive ensures that rolling motion is reduced to a barely noticeable level, thanks to active stabilisers on the front and rear axles.
    In the BMW X6 M50d, the adaptive suspension package ‘Dynamic’ expresses an even sportier note.

  • Professional

    The best of both worlds: The adaptive suspension package ‘Professional’ combines the components of both the adaptive suspension packages ‘Comfort’ and ‘Dynamic’, thereby providing the ultimate in driving comfort while maximising driving dynamics. The vehicle's suspension settings can be individually adjusted at any time using the Driving Experience Control.
    Numerous innovative technologies are available to support extremely dynamic driving. Dynamic Performance Control, for example, distributes drive power continuously between the left and right wheel on the rear axle. For example, when driving around a bend, the torque applied to the wheel on the outside of the curve (which has better traction) would be increased. The result: maximum dynamics and optimum stability. Meanwhile, Dynamic Drive reduces body roll to a nearly imperceptible minimum with stabilizers on the front and rear axles.
    This minimised body roll is particularly desirable when the driver wants more comfort-oriented characteristics, because the less lateral body motion present, the more relaxed the drive. On uneven roads, the damper characteristics can be further adjusted with Dynamic Damper Control for even greater driving comfort. The air suspension for the rear axle is included in the equipment package and guaranties a constant high level of driving comfort, no matter what is being transported.

  • Adaptive M suspension

    Increased driving dynamics: adaptive M suspension extracts even more driving dynamics potential from the BMW X6. The Dynamic Damper Control and air cushioning on the rear axle are tuned to deliver exceptionally sporty driving characteristics.
    The Sport and Sport+ modes are available in the Driving Experience Control. They provide the vehicle with highly dynamic handling, as well as a tighter shock absorber setting. In addition, the vehicle responds even more directly to steering wheel and accelerator pedal. In the Sport+ mode, the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) is also activated, which allows for an ambitious, dynamic drive and controlled drifting. In the BMW X6 M50d, all modes feature an even sportier basic configuration.
    For a relaxed drive over long stretches, the Comfort mode can be selected.


The intelligent BMW xDrive four-wheel drive system adapts perfectly to even the most challenging road surface conditions, ensuring outstanding traction at all times. With xDrive and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), the BMW X6 remains directionally stable and on track. Split-second response times allow xDrive to distribute drive power flexibly between the two axles for optimum grip. In this way, xDrive combines the advantages of all-wheel drive – traction, directional stability and safety – with classic BMW agility.

  • xDrive status

    A clear message even in difficult situations: With xDrive Status, drivers always see the big picture. The driver can access data relevant for off-road driving via the instrument cluster and the central Control Display. In addition to an easily readable compass (only in conjunction with Navigation System Professional), it also shows the car's angle of inclination and cross slope, both in degrees and visually in a 3D display.
