2009 BMW X6 xDrive35i Sports Activity Coupe

May 6, 2008

Look, so we're not Road and Track or even Consumer Reports, but can't a guy salivate over a nice new set of wheels? Even more justified if it is a driving machine like a BMW. But, even more than that is when that particular BMW is the all-new BMW X6 xDrive35i Sports Activity Coupe. Yeah, I know... with gas prices where they are, I shouldn't even care about the 20 mpg X6, but I can't keep my eyes off the thing. It's like someone put a Subaru Outback sedan into the "make me sexy and make me drive like a sports car" machine, then added a much more usable hatchback rear end. Oh yeah, did I mention that it's a BMW? The X6 is new for 2008 and comes in two twin-turbo variations: 3.0 liter inline 6 or 4.4 liter V-8 engine. Either one comes chock full of everything under the sun with leather and beautiful driver's interior. Of course, the drive system is BMW's xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive to keep the rubber side down under even the nastiest conditions. With only 4 seats, the X6 isn't a family hauler, but it looks to be an amazing guy's car with enough room to haul bikes, skis or a weekend's worth of camping gear. No, it's not practical and there's no way I would fork down $65,000 to get one, but I can still dream and drool. This is one of the sweetest looking and I'm sure best-driving vehicles on the market while still maintaining some semblance of a do-anything, go-anywhere SUV. Anyone have one I could demo for a weekend? More Info: Visit or Your Local BMW Dealer
