    M version could still get the 8 speed auto tranny and some of the new options but everythint else should stay the same.

    Dropping the 400hp xDrive50?

    Whoopsy:

    Nope, the mentioned engines are an addition/replacement. The 50i and the PP are still available.

    I don't believe on a 8-speed auto tranny for the M versions as the new M5 (2011) will not have itSmiley

    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    The M5 gets DCT instead, so the 8 speed auto tranny could be possible for the X5/X6 M.
    I still don't care. The 6-speed auto tranny does a marvelous job, Autobild Sportscars compared it to the DCT shifting speed, they were very impressed and I agree.

    I want my X5 M as fast as possible, I won't wait for the LCI.

    This is precisely the reason why I  DON' T believe in the 8-speed auto tranny in M models.
    The 8-speed gearbox doesn't tolerate either the torque or it can't provide the fast shiftings I guess.Smiley

    Actually I am quite happy with the 6-speed auto tranny in the X5M.  Shifting is one of the highlights with the X5M, particularly the downshifting with the sweet "blob-blob" in the exhaust...Smiley

    are you sure not to wait for LCI?

    wont you be dissapointed then?

    I heard that rumor some time ago... is it true??


    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    According to a source, the tri-turbo Diesel, a very powerful one, will hit the markets around 2011.

    I doubt that the 8-speed tranny is having problems with the torque, the 760i with over 750 Nm torque uses the 8-speed Steptronic. Smiley This is also one of the reasons BMW might use the 8-speed auto tranny in the X5/X6 M because otherwise, these two models would probably remain the last ones in this performance category to use the 6-speed tranny.

    There is another point: fleet consumption. The 8-speed auto tranny could help lowering it, if BMW uses it on the X5/X6 M.

    I still don't care, like you said, BMW did a marvelous job with the 6-speed auto tranny for the X5/X6 M and even if the 8-speed auto tranny may have a slight advantage in the lower speed range, there might be a disadvantage in the higher speed range because of the long 8th gear.

    Time will tell.

    @artur777: yes, I'm pretty sure I don't want to wait for the facelift/LCI. Right now my dealer is checking a possibility to get my car earlier because there has been a delay in the ordering process and apparently he messed up things. I don't care about the new rear lights or the possible 8-speed auto tranny, the engine stays the same.

    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    doesn't make too much difference for eithr btwen 6 or 8 gear tranny as long as it is well integrated. which the 6 gear seems to be.

    the engine has enough torque and power anyways.

     It would make sense to have it in the 5 and on the X range. 


    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

     5, 7 and X5/X6 I guess.

    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    I hope it`s true... it will be a very desirable engine...

    Anyone know what type of engine? 3.0 liter?

     


    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    Shakal told us a few details he heard before(354HP?, 3.0? yes). But I can't believe they plan on waiting till 2011 ! !

    I hope it`s true!!! That engine in a 5 series or a X5 would be perfect... for me...

    But i also can`t see why wait for 2011... what`s the strategy?.... I only predict a progressive release for the 5 series:  530d this year, 535d fall 2010 (?) and maybe a 540d (??) in 2011??... then after 5 series it will be on other models... (??).  Just assuming the same that appended with the firts 3.0 liter bi-turbo diesel. It was launch firts with the 535d (in 2005) after been tested in the rally dakar (on that year)...

     

     


    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

     5, 7 and X5/X6 I guess.

    and new 6 series.

    About X6 LCI... it is at least 1 year too early..

     


    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    Not sure I understand: does this mean that the X6 gets only the new engines and the new 8-speed auto tranny but not the new backlights/improved angel eyes ?

    Yes, it will get only new engines and auto tranny. This is not uncomon, fo rexample 7 series already recieved new engine in line up. X6 will get LCI next year. Next LCI will be X5.


    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    Latest rumor: it seems that the X5 M and the X6 M get the new 8-speed auto tranny too.

    BUT: apparently, performance is the same, only fuel consumption seems to be lower.

    I don't have the performance figures for the X5 M and X6 M with 8-speed auto tranny but the X6 50i does 0-100 kph in 5.4 seconds with the 6-speed automatic AND the 8-speed automatic. No difference here. Good news for us who ordered the pre-LCI.

    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    so the new X5 D get 306 hp vs 260hp ? and better MPG ? better electronics as well ?

    If I order a new X5D now, will I get the facelift model in 8 weeks in the US ?

     

    thanks

     

     


    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    The X5 LCI hasn't been officially announced yet as far as I know but rumors indicate a production start April 1st 2010 and no, this is no april's fool joke.

    It is still unknown if the US version of the X5 gets the new Diesel engines with the start of the LCI (facelift). 100% sure seems to be only the 50i model with the well known 4.4 l twin turbo V8 engine from the X6 50i.

    If you order a X5 Diesel now, it is very likely you're getting one of the "old" Diesel engines.

    The german dealers get an order software update with the new models next week or so but like I said before, only the new X6 Diesel engines have been confirmed for Germany, nothing for the X5 yet.

    Just wait, in a couple of weeks we will know more.

    Yes, the new 35d (actually 40d ?) gets over 300 HP and apparently better MPG too. Some other minor improvements and new options will be available too.

    thank you  Smiley


    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    Some additional information regarding the updated X6 (very likely valid for the X5 too):

    1. Servotronic & 8-speed auto tranny are standard

    2. price tag of the 40d is only 800 EUR (incl. 19% german VAT) higher than on "old" 35d

    3. distance radar system costs 1580 EUR (incl. 19% german VAT)

    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    RC,

    do you think the X5 facelift will be on display at Geneva ?


    Re: BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is official now

    ARMD009:

    RC,

    do you think the X5 facelift will be on display at Geneva ?

     

    I don't have a clue but I suppose so. BMW wouldn't miss such an opportunity to advertise their "new" X5, especially since one competitor, Porsche, will present a completely new Cayenne in Geneva.

    It may also be the place where BMW announces the 600 HP performance kit for the X5/X6M but surprisingly, my BMW source can't confirm that such a performance kit will be offered, just the already known 50i performance kit, now for the X5 50i (new) too.

    Another update on the 8-speed automatic transmission used for the X6/X5: apparently there will be only two advantages over the current 6-speed automatic transmission. One is a lower fuel consumption (up to 11% lower) and the other one is lower noise at the same speeds (due to the additional 2 gears and lower rpm at same speeds). The shifting speed of the 8-speed and 6-speed auto tranny are the same, there is no improvement.

    Reminder: even the 6-speed auto tranny from BMW is one of the fastest on the market, the improved version for the X5/X6M has the same shifting speed as BMW's own DCT. It is built by german manufacturer ZF.

    The new Cayenne is using a new Aisin 8-speed transmission, I just hope that Porsche and the Japanese improved this baby because the 6-speed Tiptronic was a pain in the a.. regarding shifting speed and reaction.
